Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Tarpon fishing is good right now look for fish rolling or busting bait or just cruising the flats edges. A 9-12wt rod fits the bill with either floating or sinking line depending on the situation. I like a 50-80lb shock leader for the fine teeth that can a braid the line. Flies are ones you like and presented so they intercept the fishes face...Watching the silver king eat the fly is an experience you will never forget. Get him to the boat ASAP for the release.

Seven-day forecast 

: HIGH PRESSURE CENTERED FAR NORTHEAST OF FLORIDA WILL KEEP GENERALLY LIGHT TO MODERATE EASTERLY AND SOUTHEASTERLY WINDS TODAY AND TONIGHT. WINDS GRADUALLY VEER TO A MORE SOUTHERLY FLOW TUESDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY AS THE HIGH INTENSIFIES, WHICH REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH THE END OF THE WEEK. EXPECT A CHANCE OF THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY, WHICH WILL BRING BRIEF PERIODS OF LOCALLY HIGHER SEAS AND GUSTY WINDS.

Conditions 

Its summer! Hot-humid-sweltering heat bring water and sun screeen.
