redfish,big trout and small tarpon. Shoreline casting has produced redfish,shark,snapper and jacks. Casting with 10 lb spin and baiting with Berkley gulps, shrimp and some top water plugs has kept the rods bending.

Fishing on the inshore rocks and reefs off key Largo has still been a great option for light tackle casting. Fast action with mutton,

have been showing up in the past few weeks. Fishing inshore just a few miles out we stay in calmer water and don't have much travel time to the fishing grounds so a 1/2 day works well on this trip. Offshore we had a run of some dolphin up to around 20 lbs and some good school fish as well. Got offshore a few times in the past weeks and found some good school dolphin,Kingfish
