Key Largo Backcountry Fishing-2/25/09

Capt. Bob Fernicola
February 25, 2009
Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing conditions in the upper keys this Feb. was typical with cold fronts passing threw most weeks. Some of the back to back fronts cooled water temps but the systems in the last few weeks are not lingering like the fronts of Jan. and Dec.If the water temps do cool down a bit they are warming back up quicker. Shorelines that have been quiet are now holding mangrove snapper, jack and a few snook.This is a good indication that the snook are starting to move in to an active feeding pattern and start ganging up on island points and shorelines where we have a better shot at them. Tarpon are starting to show up in spots close to home and spotted a few this past week farther in the backcountry. We targeted and landed a nice fish on a half day trip yesterday.

With the next full moon we should see more of these fish show up. Trout fishing has remained good threw the cold fronts with pompano, bluefish and ladyfish mixed in on the drift. Most redfish action still to the west around Flamingo

  Tight lines Capt. Bob
