Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Bonefish are in Biscayne Bay and Everglades National Park. Fall is a good time to look for them. Look for tails-crusing fish and tailers. In the morning many times you can see tails with the sun reflecting off of them, when spotted have a 6-8wt ready with a fly of your choice and a floating line/9-14ft leader. Cast 20ft in front of the path of the fish and and let the fly sit until the bone gets near it then simply "bump" the fly and hopefully the "silver flash" will eat it. I personally have caught over 400 of these "banana" fish and its my favorite fish to stalk and catch, that first blistering run is a breath taker, yes nature is amazing in all her glory.

Seven-day forecast 

THE COMBINATION OF A WEAK REGIONAL PRESSURE GRADIENT AND A SURFACE TROUGH ACROSS THE NORTHWEST BAHAMAS WILL CONTINUE TO LEAD TO LIGHT AND AT TIMES VARIABLE WINDS ACROSS THE REGIONAL WATERS TODAY INTO TUESDAY. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE AT JUST ABOUT ANY TIME...WHICH MAY LEAD TO BRIEF LOCAL AREAS OF GUSTY WINDS AND CHOPPIER WATERS.

Conditions 

Its fall! But hopefully fall will start cooling the waters but for now its hot..
