Bonefishing in the COLD!

Capt. Mo Estevez
December 30, 2020
Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Burr, it's been cold with night time lows in the 40's and by Miami standards that's really cold. That was not an issue for Kent and Alex from Texas as they jumped aboard bundled up and off we went. Hitting a few tarpon spots that should have held fish was a swing and a miss. More concerning was that the schools we did find were hunkered down on the bottom, a sure sign they are stressed. A quick glance at the Raymarine told the story, cold water temperatures, in the mid 60's. Ouch! We moved on and caught a few mackerel, lady fish, snappers and jacks but it was definitely slow. Running south at the right tide for bonefish I was concerned but optimistic about the warmer water flushing in with the incoming tide. This is when Kent got a nice bonefish and missed another bite but it was not what it should've been. To add to the troubles, there were no pelicans diving on bait schools and not bait to be found, no surprise as by now the water temps were between 63 and 65 degrees. The day ended on a flat with the incoming tide for sharks but that also drew a blank. So, it was slow, we caught fish and Kent got a nice bonefish. Hmmm, I'm not quite certain how this day turned out.
