6-7-13 Summer Time fishing in Key Largo

It’s been a busy couple of weeks here while fishing in Key Largo. We have been going Key Largo Deep Sea fishing mostly, out in search of mahi, tuna, and wahoo. The mahi bite has been really good so far this year, it finally slowed up a little the last week, but still decent fishing. We had some nice fish the past few weeks, most days have 4 or 5 fish from 15 – 35 lbs, and then 10 – 20 schoolies. The past couple days we have had lots of schoolies, but I’m sure we’ll get on some of the big ones again soon. We’ve been catching the occasional wahoo while trolling, as well as a few little “football” blackfin tunas. Today we caught our limit of mahi in the morning and then decided to anchor down for some reef fishing, we wound up catching our limit of yellowtail snapper in 90 minutes before calling it a day. We caught 2 daytime swordfish last week on one trip, about 40 and 60 lbs, and then we fished a couple days later with no sword action, but we did have some nice mahi. There should be plenty of mahi the next few weeks and hopefully the sword bite picks up like it did last year at this time. It’s worth the 20 minute drive south of Key Largo to go fishing in Islamorada! There has also been some nice mutton snappers and black groupers while bottom fishing on the reef! Send us an email when you’re ready to get out on a charter!
