Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report
This Sunday's forecast called for 5-10 MPH east winds and wouldn't you know it, NOAA was wrong again! We had steady 15 MPH east winds all morning and crystal clear skies. With white caps in the bay the patch reefs were out of the question but had a blast in the finger channels. Dropping over a chum bag and using live shrimp, ballyhoo plugs and artificials we caught groupers, muttons to 5lbs, bar jacks, yellow tails, porgies, hogfish, and assorted snappers. Here is a pic of one of the nice muttons caught on artificials.
Biscayne Bay Fishing Forecast:
Winter time is a great time to fish the finger channels and patch reefs as the cooler water allow the larger groupers and snappers as well as mackerels to move in shallower than usual and will keep your drag singing and your coolers slimmed. Remember to keep only what you will eat and release the rest even if the bag limits allow more.
