Miami Bonefish/Biscayne Bay

Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Click to Enlarge Photo

South Florida's fishing has been good over the last couple months with warmer weather more frequent than the cool weather from fronts. During these months we have fished for Bonefish , in South Florida and the Bahama Islands, Permit and even Tarpon migrating in large schools. Smaller Tarpon are in the creeks and are eating just about anything you throw to them. Warm water is the key for the good fishing and should hold for a while. We have been seeing and catching large Bonefish in Biscayne Bay as they tail and eat on the flats. On some of those same flats we have been getting shots at Permit tailing and moving where the water is deeper and a bit warmer. The Bonefishing in the Bahamas has also been good. This is the best time of year to fish there. Fish are up on the flats tailing most of the day. Not many cool fronts get down there this time of year and water stays warm. Gotcha flies took the most fish. We fished a part of the Exumas that doesn't get many anglers and caught fish on average about 5 and 6 lbs. Large schools of Tarpon have been moving on the oceanside of Biscayne Bay so that whole season is upon us. You can't go wrong this time of year. There are so many options to choose from. Besides the great Bonefishing thats going on at this time, the Back Country of the Everglades is still active with big Redfish, Snook and Tarpon.
