Government Cut Tarpon

Capt. Carl Ball
February 8, 2010
Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

The tarpon bite has been very good at Government Cut in Miami despite the cold temperatures from the most recent front to move through. I saw several boats over the weekend and they were all hooked up at some point. The tide was right, the wind was right, and the bite was on.

Brad Zobrist fished with me Saturday morning and went 2 for 7 on tarpon from 40 to 80 lbs.

More Fishing Reports:


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.
