Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report
In the past month I have fished many days in the backcountry between key largo and Flamingo. Shorelines are holding snook,snapper and some good sized jack crevell
. Trout fishing has shown fish popping up all over the place. In most cases while looking for snook I will spot the color change out off the shoreline and find fish in most areas of the bay.
Redfish action has been on the far end of the run approaching Flamingo and points west. On the other hand tarpon fishing has been close to home with lots of smaller fish(10 to 60 lbs) on the bay side and bigger fish running the deeper edge of the flats on the Atlantic side.
The run of bigger Tarpon will last threw June on the Atlantic while the smaller fish will hold in the backcountry in to late summer thru Sept.
