Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Baby tarpon can be on now in the park, look for rollers and busters of bait. I like a 6wt for them with surface fly or a bait fish pattern. Strip both fast with a 20lb shock leader with the barb bent down on the hook. A deceiver is perfect in white, land them fast and keep them in the water if at all possible (its the law). You might even hook a snook !

Seven-day forecast 

STRONG HIGH PRESSURE OVER NEW ENGLAND WILL STRETCH ACROSS THE ENTIRE EASTERN SEABOARD AND INTO FLORIDA THROUGH TUESDAY. EAST WINDS WILL BECOME SOUTHEAST INTO TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. A COLD FRONT NEARS THE GULF OFFSHORE WATERS BY WEDNESDAY, THEN SLOWLY MOVES SOUTHEAST THROUGH THURSDAY.

Conditions 

THERE HAS BEEN A COOL DOWN SOME WHAT! Its fall weather, look for breezy conditions Monday and Tuesday with some rain then the wind should lay down.
