Well friends we’ve had another cold front here key largo fishing in january. The fishing has been good though while not are standard winter time agenda in the backcountry, the usual cast of characters can be found. Fish are a lot more spread out as it’s been generally warm so they aren’t ‘holed up’ in their winter time hideouts.
Today we started out around east cape and caught the last of the incoming tide. We got into a snook flurry, catching 8 or so plus a nice 24″ redfish. We also caught some more small redfish, black drum, and sheepshead, all on shrimp.
Next on our key largo fishing charter agenda we hit some more corners and plugs in the various canals, alas catching was sporadic and a mix of snapper, jacks, ladyfish, and sheepshead – but still lots of rod bending fun!
We then ran back towards flamingo and looked for some seatrout. Key largo trout fishing was good we had plenty of action though all cookie-cutter size trout of 14 inches or so, just barely undersized! Yesterday we got our limit of nice 15-19 inch trout in under an hour, today not the case but still much fun! We also got some pompano, more ladyfish, and jacks.
Not a bad way to spend a beautiful day january fishing key largo.
Look for fishing to continute to imporve if the weather stays warm we will be in for an early tarpon season, plus good action in the gulf if things stay calm!
