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

When fishing deeper water bone fish, use fast sinking flies.
