6/4/13 June Key Largo Fishing Report

Well it’s been a lot of rain lately the last several days and more for tomorrow too at least.  It hasn’t stopped us from getting out and going june fishing in key largo.  The tarpon bite is not quite what it was in April however we are still catching some nice fish.  Generally my trips haven’t been quite 100% focused on tarpon and often we just try for a few hours in the morning or afternoon.  The last 3 trips we have caught them all times that we tried and went and did other things the rest of the day which has been a winning formula for me.  Today we caught lots of sharks in the key largo backcountry as well as some big ‘mud marlin.’  We also caught plenty of nice size trout, ladyfish, and snapper.  3 days ago we went and hit the gulf of mexico, key largo wreck fishing.  It was a great day with a a couple permit on light tackle, 3 cobia, 2 gigantic 300 lb bullsharks, a couple nice redfish, and limit of seatrout for dinner.  If your looking for key largo tarpon fishing in june I have evenings available and that is a more productive option most of the time than fishing in the morning.  The full days the backcountry tarpon just have not been around consistently so I would recommend an evening trip.  Give me a call or email and I can get you out there!
