12/21/12 December Key Largo Fishing

Here’s right back at ya’ with some more key largo fishing report news on 12/21/12! We fished the bayside of channel 2 bridge with incoming water from the atlantic. The temperatures have dropped a bit which lit the spanish mackerel up pretty good.

We caught more than I could count, plus plenty of jack crevalle, blue runner, mangrove snapper, and a black tip shark to top it off nicely! Later we ran back to east cape to check things out back there on the end of our december key largo fishing trip. Some fish were in the deeper canals and luckily the bugs kind of subsided – they had been terrible back there before the wind!

Luckily in a comfortable bay boat, even with it blowing 25 mph you can still get out there and fish and be totally at peace. Not bouncing around, getting soaked, like you would in a little skiff. Anyways we caught plenty of key largo redfish and a few black drum, no snookies though but that’s ok lots of fun action to have anyhow.

Glad to report the world didn’t end down here fishing key largo actually our winter time fishery is just getting started! Most fish caught today were caught on pilchards, we can go out front ocean side with these northerly breezes and still find bait which can make a big difference.

Shrimp worked too so don’t worry and that will be more and more a bait of choice if the water temperatures drop to 70 or below. Until next time!
