Key Largo and The Upper Florida Keys

Capt. Marc Blackburn
June 7, 2007
Key Largo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Dolphin-Dolphin-Dolphin-and a few sailfish, tuna, tarpon, snapper and grouper mixed in.

The dolphin (Mahi-mahi fish not flipper) are here in huge numbers. Dauntless limited out on dolphin today with 10 fish per person and released a sailfish. The winds have finally calmed down and we are back out in the Gulf Stream fishing daily for the chameleon of the sea. If you have not been summer time dolphin fishing then book a trip and give the best fishing in the world a try. These fish are beautiful, strong, jump continuously and taste great on the table. How can it get any better? Well how about the fact that they arenít too bright either and the entire school swim to the boat with their hooked sibling. We break out the 12 pound test spinning tackle and catch one after another of these 5 to 50 pound bruisers.

We have also been releases a lot of billfish in the last month. Sailfishing has never been better this time of year and the marlin should start showing up shortly. Check out the video of a sailfish Captain Ron released in May on our video page. Blackfin tuna bite continues to be strong at the Islamorada hump just 16 miles south of our dock in Key Largo. Fishing at the reef continues to be very good with mutton snapper being the best bite. Mutton snapper are spawning now on the edge and patches. They are hitting live bait and trolled plugs during the day and just about anything at night.

Tarpon time is now in the Florida Keys. The big ones are here. Ron released a tarpon over 120 pounds last week at the Card Sound Bridge. Tarpon are hitting live crabs, mullet and pinfish during the running tide by bridges and cuts. This is a great way to get out on the water for a few hours, catch a sunset and hook a monster.

June is my favorite month in the Florida Keys. Before moving to the Keys in 2000, I would vacation with the family here every June. The weather is gorgeous and the fishing could not be better. If you normally only visit the Keys in the winter time; try a visit here in June or July and find out what our summer fishing is all about. In addition to fishing, the snorkeling and diving are fantastic with crystal clear water and water temperatures over 80 degrees. There is no better place that I know of for a family vacation then here in the Florida Keys. Come for a weekend, week or stay the summer but get down here and cash in on some great fishing, fun, and family memories.
