1/26/13 Backcountry fishing report Key Largo!

Welcome back to another backcountry key largo fishing report friends! Today I had regulars with me who love to fish. We ran back to the everglades and around the cape area. The lower water levels had puppy drum stacked up in some creek mouths and runoffs. We hit ’em good catching 30 or so. We also got some nice surprises… big black drum!

We had 2 on, one we chased down though lost around a tree unfortunately. The other we made sure not to let that happen, a nice 20 lber!  Key Largo black drum fishing is a blast! We continued picking away at fish on the low tide, then when it started rising we moved to another creek.

We caught lots of snapper, jacks, ladyfish, some trout, sheepshead, and a few more bigger redfish. The boys wanted to try for a snook, so we hit several spots in search of one. They were not biting red hot, but after 4 or so moves, we finally got lucky and got the kids one – a nice 5 lber.  Key Largo Fishing Charters can offer quite the array of game fish.

We also caught a few more sheepshead and such, and then made our way back home from the key largo flats fishing.
