Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

The annual migration of large Tarpon has started to show itself, keep in mind that the article you are reading now, I wrote about one month ago. Some of the fishermen and outdoors people in general that live in South Florida realize how fortunate we are to have the ability to enjoy the great outdoors year round. In my fishing travels, I always come back home realizing how lucky I am to live in South Florida. Of course, some things that I come back to in South Florida I don't care for but we all have to realize that even a rose has thorns. Traveling and fishing up in the north east, in South America and Central America is great, but many of these destinations only have what I call "a window of opportunity." These windows of opportunity only provide the angler with certain specie for a certain period of time, usually only a couple of months per ear. In South Florida our "window of opportunity" for most species is year round, I love this.

If I have any fly fishermen reading this article it is important for you to know that for the next several months and into the summer months the fly rod is a tool of choice. How about casting a 12# R.L. Winston Boron IImx fly rod teamed up with a Galvan Torque fly reel spooled up with 250 yards of backing and a 12# Scientific Anglers Tarpon tapered fly line sprayed down with some magic "fly line slime" on 100# plus laid up Tarpon that has about 2 to 4 inches of his back bobbing in and out of the water? If this doesn't get your blood flowing, nothing will.

Bait fishermen, if you're reading this article, how about casting your shrimp on a jig to some big snook and red fish up on the dark bottom flats? Watch these fish inhale your shrimp as you lightly jig it across their path.

Artificial bait anglers, jerkin artificial baits for anything from snook and reds to tarpon and cobia. Great satisfaction to have most any fish take your artificial knowing that the fish took your offering based on your presentation, retrieve technique and choice of artificial bait.
