Florida Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Jacks are available in both everglades national park and biscayne bay. They have a large forked tail and are strong fast fighters. look for head wakes and jacks busting bait on the flats and along channels. baitfish patterns are excellent like deceivers or herring patterns. attach one to a 6-8wt rod and simply cast and retrieve in areas where you see action and use a 20lb test bite tippet. I have caught them from 38lbs on fly to 1/2 pound they are a great fish!

Seven-day forecast 

LOW PRESSURE WILL STRENGTHEN AS IT MOVES NORTHEAST AWAY FROM THE WATERS THROUGH TONIGHT. THIS WILL BRING GUSTY NORTHWEST WINDS TO SOUTH FLORIDA WATERS...CREATING HAZARDOUS SEAS AND MARINE CONDITIONS. HAZARDOUS SEAS MAY PERSIST WILL INTO THE WEEK...AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN AND A SERIES OF COLD FRONTS CROSS THE WATERS.

Conditions 

Winds associated with el-nino and cold fronts have plagued us for weeks, beware of muddy water and strong winds.
