Looks like we have some more cold weather on the way this weekend. But the fish were feeding in the backcountry today for our february key largo fishing trip. We caught this nice small tarpon along with several large redfish, plus lost a nice snook at the boat, in one of the many creeks in the everglades on the falling tide.
All on big ol’ shrimp nice, lively, and twitchy suckers! We took a look out in the gulf of mexico with the last of the falling tide to find a cobia, which we did. Unfortunately we had a hook pull on him and that was our only shot, but on the way back we saw plenty of triple tail on the crab buoys.
We caught about 8 or so and one nice keeper for dinner for this key largo fishing in february day of fun! Hit some trout run-offs after all that and caught plenty of them too. Back near home the tarpon have been seen rolling in some of the basins and channels, we saw them on this day as well.
We only had a couple tired pinfish left, but did make a few drifts and casted to some, alas none were interested. Look for it to get cold this weekend and perhaps our last good push of ‘cold weather’ fishing key largo. After that, tarpon will be back in the mix as we enter our key largo tarpon fishing season for 2013!
