FLORIDA KEYS FISHING REPORT
Greetings fish fans! An update on Florida Keys Fishing Report. Fishing the Key Largo flats and backcountry has been good lately.
Snook fishing has been very good out west. Fish up to 15 lbs have been eating pinfish and live pilchards fished on a chartreuse jig. These large females are in spawn mode right now so please be extra careful when releasing them.
Trout fishing has been steady both out west and close to home. The fish are eating soft plastics on a jig head as well as live shrimp fished under a popping cork.
There have been lots of large jack crevalle around. These fish are very user friendly and will eat various baits and lures. Watching them attack a large top water plug makes for some awesome strikes!
The oceanside flats have been quite busy with the tarpon migration as well as good numbers of bonefish and permit. A small live blue crab can be used for all three species. The tarpon are also eating live pilchards and mullet.
Shark fishing on both the oceanside and bayside flats have been great. Bonnetheads, lemons, and bulls are all plentiful this time of year. Although they can be very finnicky at times, most are willing and able to eat a well presented shrimp, pilchard, or artificial lure and give you an incredible fight on light tackle.
So, if you are up for a fight, please come visit me for some Key Largo flats fishing. Until next time, good tides and keep the sun to your back. ><)))>
