Southern Biscayne Bay & Key Largo Description

The "Bay" in Biscayne National Park is a vast, shallow, tub-shaped area which runs in a north/south direction. It's northern tip, near downtown Miami, is an area of huge flats called the "safety valve." It is littered with small islands and flats and has a long stretch of mangroves along the western shoreline. A rocky arm of shoreline flats lie oceanside - starting north at the Ragged Keys and running south ...

Techniques & Tips

Summer bonefish are a good bet, look for tailers-mudders and cruising fish. I like a 6-8wt with a floating line. Grab a fly you like with a weed guard, present the fly as far as possible in front of the ffish and move the fly once a bone gets near the fly. A hook-up is a fast long run so be prepared for this with good gear! Also beware of lemon sharks that can eat your catch. If a kill by a shark is imminent throw full bottle of water at the shark to scare it off yes it works and loosen the drag. *

7-Day Forecast

SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS AROUND 10 KNOTS AND SEAS OF 2 FEET OR LESS CONTINUING. LOCALLY HIGHER WINDS AND SEAS ARE POSSIBLE IN AND AROUND SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS.
