South Biscayne Bay Bonefishing, Nov '08!

Capt. Joe Costadura

Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

If you can get out on the right day in Nov. the bonefishing in South Biscayne Bay can be excellent! With cooler temperatures moving in and those blue bird days that come along with them visibility is never a problem, especially if you're out there during a +tide where the fish might be harder to see during overcast conditions.

But if you can hit it right during the -tide its time for tails and this time of year they tend to be big too! Also with the cooler temperatures approaching you also have a bit more time to sleep in and make a later morning start and wait for the water temp to hit the magic number, somewhere in the mid 70's! One of my favorite Fall patterns for Bonefish is the toad pattern tide in a tan or ginger color tide on a #2 34007. It's been a go to pattern for me during the Fall and Winter months and always produces good results!

Another factor in Fall Bonefishing is that (and sometimes a little too much!) the winds pick up this time of year, this can be a blessing and a curse! The curse part I don't have to explain and anybody whos crossed Biscayne Bay on a windy day knows what I'm talking about, but the blessing is that the wind can sometimes run the interference allowing you to get little bit closer to a wary Bonefish without him spooking. And making those leaders as wind resistant as possible, I usually start with about 6ft. of 40lb to 3ft of 20lb tapering to 1ft of 14 or 12lb flourocarbon giving you a good 10ft leader that will rollover with a heavier fly! Well thats enough yacking for know, time to get out there and throw the bugs around at some South Bay SLOBS!!! Til next time, keep those hook points SHARP and catch em up.........Capt. Joe!
