Biscayne Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report
James Rockefeller from Albuquerque NM caught this bonefish on fly after breaking one off and pulling the hook on another.
James used the live crab trick to encourage this 33 lb permit to inhale his hook.
Ed Wettach and his wife Eleanor fished for bonefish, permit and tarpon coming up with all three to complete the flats slam. Ed did the fishing while Eleanor critiqued his casting and constantly had to remind him to keep his bait in the water. HaHa! Fortunately, Ed was able to catch this 27 inch baby tarpon,
this 18 lb permit
and finally this 4 lb bonefish. Sweet redemption!
Biscayne Bay Fishing Forecast:
The best part of summer in South Florida is that there is always a good chance of catching a flats grand slam. July and August are the best months to accomplish this goal.
bonefish, permit, tarpon, sharks
