KEY LARGO FISHING REPORT
Key Largo Fishing Update 2/12/11
Reef fishing has been the most popular trip in the past month. Fishing shallow reefs off key largo has been getting the job done. Early this past month we had water temps inside the reef about 70 and cold fronts every week.
In the past 2 weeks with no cold fronts the water is know 74 to 77 deg. and this really got the fish going. Prior to the warm up it was a lot of macks,grouper,some muttons,porgys,jacks and shark. Now that it warmed up we are seeing all of the above and more snapper, hogfish and yellowtails. Lots of action inside
on light tackle and bigger fish on live ballyhoo has been a regular ocurance.On the reef line better yellowtails are in the 40 to 70 foot range as well as bigger grouper ,but the action and variety is better on the inside patch reefs as well as calmer seas. If water temps stay put we could start to see an early run of permit and pompano mix in.With calm seas and just a few miles out half days work well on this trip.
Backcountry has also got better and closer to home with this warmer trend, sea trout, redfish and snapper
are the normal catch with tarpon biting better around the full moon.Snook have been hit or miss. Other species
such as Goliath grouper,sheepshead,shark and black drum are in the mix as well.
Outside the reef line Black fin tuna, kingfish and cudas have been the most consistent with sailfish and Wahoo on some trips. Dolphin are in on some days with some nice fish when you find them. If the east winds stay put that will push the gulf stream closer and help the dolphin bite.
(closed season fish released)
Spanish Mack and snapper
