Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report
The tourists are sparse so it's the best time to get on the water. During the summer months, yes it's hot however it is most likely flat calm on the water. The fish are very easy to see on the flats and sitting up under the mangroves.
Come prepared with lots of water and sunscreen. The bite is great especially in the backcountry. Try your hand at Tarpon, Snook, Bonefish, Permit est.!
I am a South Florida native who has been fishing the local waters from Biscayne Bay to Islamorda for over 20 years. After obtaining my captain's license, I have been chartering light tackle and fly fishing enthusiasts in the Key Largo area and Everglades National Park.
My fishing speciality is targeting Snook, Redfish and Sea Trout in the backcountry and Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit on the ocean side flats that surround the upper keys. Lets have a great day on the water!
