Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

The flats have warmed this week so look on the flats for redfish and snook. Look for muds-tails and cruising fish. Present the fly in a matter so that the fish find the fly then bump it for the hopeful take. I like 6wts for these fish with 20lb bite tippet. Any bait fish pattern you like will work like a deceiver or bendback fly with some white mixed in. Current flow and the mood of the fish are important at times as well as water temps.

Seven-day forecast 

UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE LEADS TO A STAGNANT PATTERN ACROSS THE WATERS THROUGH MIDWEEK. EXPECT WINDS FROM THE EAST THIS WEEK OF 10-15KTS WITH SOME RAIN IN THE FORECAST.

Conditions 

Right now the forecast is for some wind from the east from 10-15kts later in the week with little rain lets hope so.
