Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Baby tarpon are available in deeper creeks and island motes right now. A 6wt with sinking flies and poppers with a 20lb shock tippet and floating line covers the tackle side of it. Look for rollers and fish busting bait plus sight fish them, cast strip the fly as you like they fight hard and will swim for the roots so keep the pressure on and use barbless hooks and leave them in the water when removing the hook.

Seven-day forecast 

A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA TODAY, THEN INTO SOUTH FLORIDA EARLY TUESDAY. THE FRONT WILL CLEAR THE SOUTHERN PENINSULA BEFORE MIDDAY TUESDAY. NORTH WINDS WILL SHARPLY INCREASE BEHIND THE FRONT ON TUESDAY WITH RAPIDLY DETERIORATING MARINE CONDITIONS. WINDS WILL BECOME NORTHEAST LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND CONTINUE RATHER STRONG INTO THURSDAY BEFORE WINDS DECREASE SOME FOR THE END OF THE WEEK. ROUGH SEAS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGH MID-WEEK WITH ONLY SLOW IMPROVEMENT BY THE END OF THE WEEK.

Conditions 

We are experiencing some fall weather with cold front passage, a big front is expected on Tuesday with strong winds calming down by the end of the week.
