KEY LARGO FISHING REPORT

                                             Key Largo Fishing Report 12/30/12 Reef/Backcountry Fishing

                                            With cold fronts rolling in to Key Largo on a regular basis fishing the reef has been the ticket to fast action with a variety of species. Key Largo Reef fishing is good year round but it is in the cooler months that are the most productive for fishing the shallow rocks with light tackle. Casting to the edge of the reefs and rocks with 12 lb spin and tipped jigs or knocker rigs with bait has turned up many species of snapper, grouper (both red and black),hogfish,yellowtails,cero and Spanish macks and an assortment of jacks as well. Fishing live ballyhoo on 20 to 30 lb spin has bought in big fish. Mutton snapper, black grouper, big macks,shark and cuda .Lots of bait around all the rocks we fished in the past few weeks. This will draw bigger bottom fish from the deeper water into the shallows. With short travel time and fishing calmer conditions inshore Shallow reef fishing is a great option this time of year. This type of fishing will hold up threw the cooler winter months and into early spring.

                                                               Backcountry fishing has remained good with trout,snook and redfish. Fish are getting into there winter pattern as expected. Creek mouths and pot holes are holding snook and redfish in decent numbers after the cold fronts and as it warms up fish move out to the shorelines and shallows. Trout fishing over the deeper grass flats has remained solid with some bigger fish over 20" being common. Mixed in with the trout are some big sheepshead,jacks and ladyfish. Fishing in the mangrove creeks has been a mixed bag with all the above species and snapper as well.Weather in the Backcountry or on the Inshore Reefs Key Largo provides good light tackle fishing year round.
