Biscayne Bay Heats Up!

Capt. Carl Ball
January 21, 2010
Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

After ten plus days of colder than normal temperatures here in South Florida, the bonesfish, permit and tarpon are making a comeback.

Monday, Rob Lynch went 2 for 5 on tarpon in Government Cut. The biggest was about 60 lbs.

Tuesday, Rich Schuster caught a 50 lb tarpon in the cut. Fishing down south was not as productive as I had hoped. We saw some bones and permit. We just didn't get the right shot at them. The visibility was a little tough and we just didn't see them soon enough.

Wednesday, Gene Conroy and friend Greg had a pretty good day. Greg caught a 25 lb tarpon on our first drift but then couldn't get a bite. The tarpon were there, but I just couldn't make them eat. At the first bonefish spot there was a big school hanging around so we feed them some live shrimp and got 2 to the boat. Later we had more shots at bonefish and caught a small lemon shark to round off the day.

I specialize in both fly fishing and light tackle sight fishing for bonefish, permit, tarpon, snook and shark. My area of guiding expertise extends from the northern reaches of the Florida Keys to Miamiís Biscayne Bay and the waterways of Fort Lauderdale. Depending on your preference, Key Biscayne in Miami gives the angler the best opportunity to catch a variety of species, whereas in Fort Lauderdale, the focus is more on live baiting for tarpon, snook, jack crevalle and barracuda.
