Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report
Happy New Year to all! What a cold new year it is with record cold across the country. Snow everywhere, even in Florida. What a cold winter so far. The good thing is that this much cold is not usual and will probably not be felt again this season. I hope!
Fishing in Fort Lauderdale up the New River, Dominic and some of his buddy's caught a few jacks from 12 to 15 lbs using live mullet.
Don and Matt Davis fished Biscayne Bay and landed 4 bonefish after leaving the dock with the air temperature at 57 deg. at Fowey Light. The bonefish ranged from 2 to 7 lbs. and were all caught on live shrimp and chumming.
Don Young and his friend Bill had a little tougher time at it. This day we left the dock with the temp. at 53 deg. at Fowey Light. We had to work for them today, but by the end of it Bill caught a 10 lb bonefish sight fishing the chum.
This weather is unseasonably cold, but things are looking up for the end of this week with temps getting back to normal for this time of year. If we continue with a nice warming trend fishing should be great. By now the fish are getting used to the cold so with the slightest warming everyone will be happy and hungry.
Biscayne Bay Fishing Forecast:
The tarpon should be showing on the beaches and in the cuts in good numbers as the water warms and the shrimp run. This is the beginning of tarpon season and my bet is that they are hungry.
