Fishing tips for Upper Keys

Hello everyone, I will be taking a trip to Key Largo with my girlfriend and her two kids in early to mid August. I haven't fished the keys much though I grew up fishing in SW FL and am currently stationed in Pensacola. Ill be bringing my 20ft CC with me and taking the GF and her kids snorkeling and fishing in Key Largo.

I've been trying to figure out where to go for tarpon inshore and Mahi offshore in the upper keys. I plan to put in at Pennekamp for snorkeling and long key for fishing. I'm planning on going to the 409 humps if the weather is good and if the weather is too rough I want to get the kids some tarpon and lobster inshore.

Any tips on where to go for either tarpon or Mahi from long key to key largo? I know I'm being very general, but any tips would be greatly appreciated.
