Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Bonefish are both in the park and Biscayne Bay, look for tailers, mudders and cruising fish they can at times look like barracudas. Early morning now is best for them or late afternoon, present the fly so the fish finds the fly, look for a tail quivering or an excited fish keep the line tight and strip set if you feel the fish. I like a 6-8wt rod with a 9-12ft leader with a 20lb bite tippet. Keep the rod high to clear obstructions!

Seven-day forecast 

Synopsis: A COLD FRONT WILL ENTER THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE TODAY AS THE ATLANTIC HIGH SHIFTS SLIGHTLY EAST. THIS WILL ALLOW FOR A SOUTHEASTERLY TO SOUTHERLY WIND FLOW TO DEVELOP WHICH WILL THEN PERSIST INTO LATE WEEK. DEEP EASTERLY FLOW MAY RETURN BY FRIDAY.

TROPICAL STORM ERIKA...LOCATED SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES EAST OF THE LESSER ANTILLES...IS FORECAST TO MOVE IN A GENERAL WEST NORTHWEST DIRECTION AND POSSIBLY INTO THE SOUTHEASTERN BAHAMAS BY SATURDAY. CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS ON ERIKA.
