8-24-13 August deep sea fishing in Key Largo

There’s been some great fishing the past few weeks while offshore fishing in Key Largo. We’ve been leaving from 20 miles south of there, and been fishing from anywhere from the edge of the reef to 30 miles out. The reef has provided lots of action with yellowtail snapper and a few mutton snapper, a little further out on the wrecks we have also caught some vermillion snapper and amberjack, and then out in the gulf stream we have been catching mahi and blackfin tuna… We’ve have also been doing some swordfishing and been picking away at some fish. It hasn’t been easy but we have caught some nice fish the last month, but with the good days there has been some real slow days with no broadbill as well. We should still have plenty of snapper and blackfin tuna coming up this fall, as well as some mahi but there might not be quite as many as there has been lately.

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!

Key Largo Fishing in the middle of May

The fishing in Key Largo has been great lately! The reef has been providing tons of action with yellowtail snapper and a couple of grouper. The Mahi have been twice as good this year as last year, including some real nice bulls. Around the wrecks there has been some sharks as well as some goliath grouper too if you’re looking for a really big pull. Make the 20 minute drive south of Key Largo and go on a great Fishing Trip! Send me an email and I’ll get you out on an offshore key largo fishing charter! We also have been doing some daytime swordfishing and we didn’t catch one our last trip, but we did pull the hook on a very large broadbill. However we did catch 1 the trip before that and then 2 the trip before that!

1-10-13 Key Largo Deep Sea Fishing Report

Deep Sea Fishing in Key Largo¬†has been great lately. On our Key Largo offshore fishing charters we have been fishing about 15 – 20 miles south, on the edge of the reef. We have been focusing on sailfish, since thats one of the most exciting winter time sport fish we have here. Today the wind was strong, 20+ knots out of the south east, and the seas were rough, 4 – 6′ with a few bigger swells coming through. It’s not the best wind for sailfish, but it didn’t stop them from biting. We released 2 out of 3 sailfish bites, and also caught a few mahi. We were fishing with Kites, using live goggle eyes and Ballyhoo for bait. Look us up when you want to go fishing in Key Largo!
