June Fishing Forecast

There’s been a lot of talk recently about the Gulf oil spill and how it could move towards South Florida and the Florida Keys.  At this point, no one is really certain if this oil spill will affect the Florida Keys.  As of now, the water is clear of any oil and the fish are biting.  Take advantage of the calmer winds of summer and come on down the Keys for some world-class fishing!!!

In Key Largo, we have been getting into a little bit of everything.  When the winds cooperated, the oceanside reefs and wrecks have been producing a great bite.  The snapper and grouper fishing has been as good as it gets.  We’ve had no problems catching a load of mangrove snappers with plenty of hogfish, yellowtail and a few muttons mixed-in.  There’s been plenty of grouper hanging down in the rocks along with the snapper.  Most of the shallow reefs have been producing legal sized gag grouper with the keeper blacks being out in the deeper water over 30 feet.  The permit are in their annual summer spawning cycle which makes for some fun sight-fishing as they flash and tail above the reefs on calm days.  

The snook bite is continually improving as water temperatures rise.  This week, the Tate family from the UK managed to catch 8 snook, all of which were over 30 inches.  This was a welcomed sight as snook fishing has been poor the past few months.  The redfish are moving up onto the flats along with some nice trout.  We’ve had good luck poling the flats around Flamingo and throwing jerk baits to tailing and waking reds.  The channels and flats on the oceanside have had plenty of rolling migratory tarpon when the weather is calm.  The channels are the most productive when the wind is blowing too hard to sight-fish the flats for these silver kings.  The bonefishing has also been productive at the lower stages of the tide in the mornings.  Look for a day when you can fish the last few hours of the outgoing and the beginning of the incoming.  Fishing is as good as it gets in June, so get out there on your boat or give me a call to book a trip at (305)304-2212.

'Til next time, Tight Lines and Light Winds…….
