Fishing Key Largo this weekend - Tarpon Basin / Buttonwood Sound

We're heading down to Key Largo this weekend and staying on the water (Tarpon Basin). Looking for some recommendations for fishing the waters there (Tarpon Basin and Little Buttonwood Sound). We'll have a boat so we don't HAVE to stay right there, but not looking to run too far. What species should I be targeting there this time of year (snook, trout, reds, etc)? How is the bait population? Certainly don't expect you to reveal your honey-hole (not that I would complain...feel free to PM me :-) ) but I'd love to put the wife and kids on some fish.

Thanks all! Tight Lines

    no doubt. Key Largo is a big place. I was just hoping for some specific info on Tarpon Basin since we'll be running around in there mostly. Thanks though
