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

Bonefish are on the flats in a big way right now with warm water, a client caught on fly three the other day sight fishing one was 13lbs. A 6-8wt is perfect with a pattern of your choice. Watch for tails-cruising fish or mudding fish. Present the fly so the bonefish finds it and if he eats get ready for a good ride. I like floating lines and 9ft leaders.

7-Day Forecast

HIGH PRESSURE OFF THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES COAST WILL GRADUALLY WEAKEN THROUGH THE WEEK, LEADING TO LIGHTER AND MORE SOUTHERLY WINDS OVER THE WATERS. WINDS SHOULD REMAIN BELOW 15 KNOTS AND SEAS BELOW 5 FEET THROUGH THE WEEKEND.
