Key Largo Fishing Report 2/27/13 Reef / Backcountry

Capt. Bob Fernicola

Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing the inshore reefs off Key Largo yesterday the bite was on, wind was blowing around 20 out of the south but inshore conditions where only around a 2 foot chop. Looking for some good eating fish for my clients they were impressed by the number of species and quality of the fish off the Florida Keys so close to land. These folks where no strangers to the ocean with accomplishments including sailing around the world and fishing in many locations. Setting up in around 18 feet of water and fishing shrimp, cut baits and live ballyhoo we started out with Mutton snappers

and Big cero macks.
