In Flamingo the bite is on and everytime I head out there just seems to be more and more Redfish. On the bights tails have been visible in every direction, properly setting up on a group of fish you intend to target is key when targeting tailing fish in very shallow water. Getting in front and leading of a group of fish is always more effective rather than polling after them too aggresively, in shallow water fish are muchmore sensitve to vibrations and movement, following this technique when sightfishng Reds will get you hooked up alot more. There has been alot of dead grass on the surface so weedless is the only way to go! Berkely Powerbait shrimp rigged weedless have been devastating and Gulp shrimp are always a hot ticket for Reds! When the grass is thick on the suface I like to go with a more streamlined fly, a bulky fly can pick up dead grass esily! Thinner bodied flies like bendbacks and Prince of Tides will ease the frustration. Working the shorelines of the islands south of the marina is a good idea as well. Baby tarpon have been out in the early mornings along the edges of the flats and in the channels but hasnt been very consistent, but when they are be prepared, topwater plugs like Top Pups are very effective in triggering a crushing topwater strike! Look for in the potholes and on the mangrove shorelines, white jerkbaits like flukes will get it done and streamer and baitfish fly patterns are what you need!

In Biscayne Bay the bonefishing is on, early morning is the time to get there for the tails! South Biscayne Bay is a great area to target bones this time of year, from the flats west of Totten key to Mangrove Pt. the action has been pretty solid. Smaller flies in the summer is a good strategy, tan snappin shrimp and marabou shrimp with a little orange or peach marabou tied in have been working well. The permit action has beed good too, from the featherbeds on down to midnight pass! Work those areas on the max flood through the falling, crab patterns ofcourse are where you need to be, tan is a great all around color to toss at them. A good cast to permit is to have the fly drop and fall about a foot or two in front there face, what ever happens next is in Gods hands! The Tarpon action has slowed down a little but they're still out there, early morning on the oceanside from Ceasars to Angelfish and the oceanside of Largo are good areas to look for them. Well, thats it for this month guys! Hope everyone has been getting out and getting some while the summer is here, be safe out there and catch em up. Talk to you soon.......................Capt. Joe!
