Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Small tarpon are excellent 6-8wt fish. Grab a floating line with a 20-25lb bite tippet and 9-10ft of leader. I like rolling fish where oxygen levels are maybe lower hence the roll to gulp air. The roll will tell you where in the water depth they are that's when at times I grab a sinking line if I believe they are going deep. I like bait fish fly's for them so make the cast and give it good strips a flash lets you know if they ate it don't raise the rod but strip set it if you see this.They jump, greyhound and can give a good account of themselves, get the release as fast as possible.

Seven-day forecast 

HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO DOMINATE THE AREA INTO NEXT WEEK. EASTERLY WIND AND A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR SHOWERS WILL PREVAIL.

Conditions 

Winds will be picking up from the east with afternoon storms and possible lighting beware.
