Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report
Looks like the rain is finally giving us a break and the wind laid down enough to get on the water. Many times the reports are skeptical at best around the full moon, but I'm here to tell you the bite has been OUTSTANDING! The backcountry is full of bait schools pushing up and down the shorelines with the predators following close behind or right below.
We got yesterday afternoon and experienced one of the best bites I have seen in a long time. We made 2 throws of the cast net and had both livewells full of frisky baits and headed off. At our first spot it became very obvious that the trip was going to be special. Our first cast produced a double hookup on some nice size Snook, the next cast was a Redfish and a huge Jack, followed by Snook after Snook after Snook. The 2 biggest from this spot were 32" and 33". The sun started going low, the bugs got pretty bad and we moved on to the next spot.
Upon arriving we could hear the baits getting crashed. We got set up and started chumming with live baits. My first 2 cast resulted in 2 Tarpon that went about 15 lbs, these small guys jumped like crazy and put on a great show in the full moon light. We then got into a school of Redfish and landed 3 of them. We continued to chum and could hear the baits getting hit in the mangroves. We wound up catching 8 or 9 more snook before the end of the night.
These were the notable catches produced from 2 spots. The unmentioned catches of ladyfish, snapper, and sharks throughout this trip should give you an idea of the excitement we experienced. I wish I had pictures but I was literally too busy to put the rod down and take them.
If you'd like to experience action like this, give me a call 407-808-0405. www.ankledeepadventures.com We look forward to hearing from you.
