Key Largo Patch Reef

Key Largo Patch Reef

Florida Sportsman member: beachsideandy I got out to a patch reef with a nice 16 to 30ft drop. I netted a ton of ballyhoo to take back with me for the dolphin run up in my area. Right when I was finishing up, two cobia appeared behind the boat. One ate a ballyhoo chunk and I put it in the box.

Florida Sportsman Member: Viking On a recent trip to Bahia Honda State Park, I was able to find plenty of areas to catch tarpon, bonefish and plenty of other varieties of fish. This video covers how to identify productive areas and the baits used to catch fish.



Where to Fish for Tarpon
