Southern Biscayne Bay & Key Largo, Florida Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
When you purchase new rod from Orvis they provide a ferrule wax with each rod. Simply apply the wax to the male end of each section. If you dont have the wax in a pinch rub your eye-nose area of your face with your finger and apply your natural oil to the ferrule. This will help prevent the sections from sticking. If they do stick put the section stuck under hot water and grab the section with a sponge and pull/twist or get a helper to pull/twist or put the sections behind your back/legs and pull/twist the section apart with your legs.

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

If fish dont show on the flats with warm water, grab a 6wt, some sinking line, a 9ft leader with a bite tippet of 20-30lb leader a a bait fish pattern you like like a deceiver. Find current flow, that could be a flat edge, a channel, lake or basin where the tide is moving good. I look for bait fish movement or bait being busted by fish and start casting. Strip fast in shallow water and slow in channels. Its like Christmas you don't know what you will pull up from the depths and remember to strip-set on the eat don't raise the rod!

7-Day Forecast

HIGH PRESSURE WILL BUILD ACROSS THE MARINE AREA THROUGH THE FIRST HALF OF THE WEEK WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE NORTHEAST WINDS AND SEAS EXPECTED. A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS PROJECTED TO MOVE INTO THE AREA THROUGH THE MID TO LATE WEEK PERIOD AND WILL LEAD TO SOUTHWEST WINDS AND INCREASING RAIN CHANCES ONCE AGAIN GOING INTO THE UPCOMING WEEKEND
