and some big giants far in the backcountry. More tarpon will show up with the next full moon. Lots of snapper in the creeks but still slow on snook.Reef fishing off key largo is doing well on the inside patch and in the deeper water as well. Assorted snapper,jacks,porgys,macks and hogfish both inside and in the deeper water. Deeper reef fishing has also produced some good size yellow tails, some big mutton snapper and grouper. This past week most reef trips stayed inside because of windy conditions. Grouper fishing will reopen May 1st after a first time 5 month closure. Snook will remain closed until Sept. this year as of now.
