Fall Dolphin and Backcountry Snook

Capt. Jeremy Mathis
November 19, 2015
Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report

It has been a beautiful week to be in Key Largo, FL. We started out with calm seas which let us adventure offshore for a great Snapper bite and further out for Dolphin and Tuna. The weather then became tropical so we switched gears and returned to our bread and butter and tore up the backwaters of Key Largo bagging more snapper and Snook.

Here it is November and we are still finding dolphin off Key Largo. The fish were running very close to the reef line in 200-400' of water. We had our best luck running blue and white islanders with strip bait and also had luck with green and yellow bubblers. We chose the medium size on 60lb leaders and the fish loved it.

When we headed out back, the morning bite was a bit off for some reason but picked up in the afternoon. We used live pilchards with 40lb leader and #4 hooks in and around moving water for best results. Andy, pictured here, had a great story. He told us to let him know when we had about 10 minutes left of fishing because that's when he did his best work, we of course laughed and carried on with our trip. Well, about 10 minutes before heading back to the dock I told Andy, OK 10 Minutes! 2 cast later he had the best fish of the day, a nice 32" Snook.
