Miami Area & Northern Biscayne Bay Description

Biscayne Bay is a large expanse of water that is bounded by Key Biscayne to the north, Key Largo to the south, the mainland of south Miami-Dade county to the west and numerous flats and Keys to the east. The ecosystem lies within the water of Biscayne National Park. This unique geography allows us to fish out of the wind on most days when necessary.

Techniques & Tips

Inshore look for birds and bait school. Lots of mixed bag of fish following them. Flats fishing will be tough this week with high water and overcast skies.
