Inshore Fishing in Key Largo

The ishore fishing Key Largo offers anglers is as varied as it is awesome. Whether you’re heading out onto the flats, zipping off to the Everglades, fishing Biscayne Bay, or backcountry fishing, the inshore waters of Key Largo are full of non-stop action if you know where to look.

What to Expect

Depending on where you go, you can expect to spend your day on one of two distinct types of boats. Larger groups going to the reefs and shipwrecks will fish from a center console. These can fit up to 6 people and have the added advantage of going faster, so you can fish further out on your trip. These boats offer a dry ride, usually with seating and space for the whole group to fish comfortably.

In the backcountry, bays, and flats, you’ll be on a skiff or bay boat. These are smaller and can have a maximum of 4 people on board. These boats let you get closer to the action and can maneuver into hard-to-reach areas.

Inshore trips are great for targeting species such as Tarpon and Snook. Tarpon break the line in over 60% of cases – although you’re likely to find Tarpon, whether you can reel it in or not will depend on your skills. Evenings are a great time to target Tarpon and will give you that extra advantage when out on the water.

Wherever you decide to fish, you’ll have the opportunity to choose from an eight-hour, six-hour, or four-hour trip. More time means more fish in the cooler.

How to Prepare

Your fishing license will usually be included in the price of the trip if fishing in saltwater, along with the rods, reels, and bait. For inshore freshwater fishing, everyone over 16 will need to buy a fishing license. You’ll likely need to bring along your own snacks and drinks for the day. Be wary of the space on board and leave the bulky coolers in the car. It’s best to wear light breathable layers and non-marking shoes. Don’t forget your camera, non-aerosol sunscreen, and a hat, and you’re good to go.

February is just a little early for the big tarpon run. I was hoping to get lucky on some early arrivals. It didn't happen so changed the game plan, and had a blast the rest of the day smashing all different species of fish of all different sizes. Don't be afraid to adapt or even change your game plan. You might enjoy it. I loved it!
