Flamingo to Biscayne Bay, Heating Up!

Capt. Joe Costadura
May 16, 2009
Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Summer is almost here and the warmer temps are starting to give us some better fishing out on the flats of Biscayne Bay, Flamingo, and the Upper keys! My last couple of trips out have proven worthy of a good effort. Biscayne has been showing excellent numbers of bonefish pushing up on the flats of south Biscayne Bay, sometimes in schools of 100 fish or more! Early morning tailers are also out there making for some heart stopping sight fishing on the fly. Tan crab patterns like bonefish toads are an excellent choice as well as tan or brown snappin shrimp. The Tarpon migration is absolutley in full swing oceanside from south Biscayne Bay to the Middle Keys is going off with big schools making there way to Tarponville! The black and puple toad has been the fly to go to lately, I've been tying them up in gross as well as the good ole chartruese and yellow too. The wind has died down a bit, although there still have been some days I've been asking myself is march really over, but it has benn a bit better none the less. Permit are also out there, Key Largo has been the spot lately but also the Permit fishing has been really picking up in Florida Bay within the Everglades National Park boundaries. Flamingo, well Flamingo is staring to act like Flamingo again and the fishing is great! The bights west of the marina are loaded with lots of Reds and Snook. The incoming tides have been very productive and I've been seeing schools of Reds holding 80 or more fish! Tailiers are abundant, and picking them off with the flyrod is the ultimate. Bendbacks like the prince of tides ore a great choice also redfish toads tide in brown or olive are also a must! Baby tarpon are showing in the channels on the edges of the flats rolling in the early morning hrs. Gurglers are always my go to fly for the little guys, they just dont hesitate to pounce all over em! There have been more snook then we can cast at, look for them hanging out over the pot holes on the bights. Well its starting to happen guys, good times and good fishing! What more can you ask for, catch em up..............................................Capt. Joe!
