Winter in Biscayne Bay

Capt. Mo Estevez
November 21, 2008
Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Well, I was at it again today but this time with more manageble wind. Today was just a gorgeous day with crystal clear skies, air temperature in the low 70's all day and a nice 15MPH north wind. We played the potluck game again today and had some fun with groupers, muttons, mangroves and some 4'+ sharks on light tackle.

There are a couple of situations to take advantage of this time fo year if you just want to out and have some fun. Winter time is prime time for big sharks and barracudas to take to the flats looking for food and to warm up. Fish the east side flats from Stiltsville on south and look for the long rockets (barracudas)or sharks. One way to have easy fun with these sharks is to put out a chum bag in 3-4' of moving water and add a trace of wire to either live bait (pinfish, pilchards, mullets or ballyhoo) or top water plugs. When they show up expect to see some sharks in the 5'-6' range along with some smaller ones. For barracudas use the same rig for sharks except move the top water plugs in front of the fish and then work them fast.

Until next time, have fun out there!
