Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Most of my trips in the past weeks have been out front on the reef.Snapper fishing has held up good with mangrove,yellowtails,lane and muttons.

Macks around on most spots but not ganged up like in the fall, but still catching them on most all trips. Hogfish seem to show up in decent numbers on the calmer days as do some permit. A run of big jacks came in last week with fish up to 35 lbs. Starting to see more groupers mostly reds and some gags. Shark and cuda are there if we want them and more bluefish this year then I have ever seen with fish up to 5 lbs(it must be really cold up north for these guys to be down this far). Did Offshore for Half a day and found some decent school dolphin and a nice Wahoo also some Black fin around, action was close inside of 8 miles out.

As of Jan 1 sea trout have opened up and catching a bunch is no problem.Trout are where they should be (2 to 4 feet over the grass beds) and are schooled up heavey,lots of fish over 20".With the trout are crevell jacks, ladyfish, some pompano and more bluefish. With fast action this fishing is a lot of fun. nook have been hard to make eat this past week but when we did hook up they were big fish (8 to 12 lbs).Red fish action has been the best around Flamingo but also some stray fish in the eastern bay around Island points.
