I am going to Flordia with a few friends of mine and we are wanting to go hunting in a place that is right off shore. Any sugestions?
I am hearing that Key Largo is a good place to go???

Unfortunately/fortunately for you, the Upper Keys are plagued with the nasty Lionfish. Several tournaments dedicated exclusively to capturing the succulent invaders have been organized with great success.
You will encounter lots of Lionfihes on the reef.
For your fishing base I would suggest Tavernier, a small town conveniently located between Key Largo and Islamorada, with lots of dive tour operators and the proximity of the best diving sites.There is a Marina and a tackle shop in Tavernier Creek which links the Ocean and the Bay.
Come as you are and have fun !
