Key Largo Backcountry Fishing for Snook Tarpon and Refish

Capt. Jeremy Mathis
November 11, 2014
Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report

We got out yesterday evening with some folks from Colorado who wanted to see the difference in our fish and theirs. The different styles of fishing amaze me, many of my northern clients don't realize that you have to man handle our Snook and Tarpon and many times Reds in order to keep them out of the mangroves, but after loosing one or two they catch on LOL.

We filled our livewell with frisky baits and hit our first spot with a beautiful sunset in the backgroud. It was rather quiet at first but as soon as the sun went down the entire bay lit up with huge schools of mullet. There were sharks, ladyfish, jacks, tarpon, snook, and redfish crashing everywhere. We fished the current lines and edges of the bait schools and landed some really nice Mangrove Snapper, but when we moved to the edge of the mangroves we landed a 31" Redfish, 2 smaller 15lb tarpon, and a couple really healthy snook.

The fish have been feeding aggressively as they fatten up for the winter. Now is the time to take a trip to Key Largo and experience some of the best fishing of the year. Give us a call.
