Planning on fishing Key Largo? Check out my latest Key Largo, Tavernier and Islamorada Fishing report.

We were closed Labor Day weekend through Thursday September 6th due to the wind and poor sea conditions caused by Hurricane Dorian. Our hearts and prayers are with all those in the Bahamas.

On September 6 we fished offshore and caught some beautiful dolphin trolling dead ballyhoo. Check out this nice Bull Dolphin we caught. Along this fish we caught several that weighed 15 pounds.

Dolphin are still on the Key Largo center stage,  but I am seeing that on some days the dolphin are little more aggressive than others.

It has been a Billfish bonanza for us late for us.  We have caught and released several Atlantic Sailfish on offshore 7 hour trolling trips and released a big Blue Marlin!

Atlantic Sailfish Released!


Nice Pile of Dolphin for Dolphin for John who also Released a Blue Marlin


Dolphin love Big Weed Mats

Look at Those Tripletail!

Still a Few Large Mangrove Snappers Around

Fished the reef on Sunday and was not impressed. Many of the deeper spots are loaded with undersize Mutton Snappers and trash fish.  Prior to Dorian I snuck out and fished the reef for Black Groupers only, clients must have patience and be in it to win it when trolling for groupers.


Blackfin Tuna are showing up on the Islamorada Hump and 409 Hump. If the sea conditions are doable I would recommend a half day Islamorada Hump trip. Targeting Blackfin Tuna closer to home is a possibility on days when the current and water quality are right.  Offshore trips beyond the Islamorada Hump which is where the dolphin are traveling a majority of the time requires a 7 hour charter.
