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 

LIGHT TO MODERATE SOUTHEAST TO SOUTH WINDS THROUGH THIS EVENING...THEN A SHARP INCREASE IN NORTH TO NORTHWEST WINDS AS A COLD FRONT SWEEPS THROUGH THE LOCAL WATERS LATE TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. WINDS MAY INCREASE TO NEAR 30 KNOTS BRIEFLY OVER THE GULF WATERS. SEAS WILL BUILD TO 10 FEET IN THE OUTER GULF OF MEXICO WATERS WEDNESDAY, AND UP TO 8 FEET IN THE ATLANTIC BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THANKSGIVING DAY. MARINE CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN ON THE ROUGH SIDE THROUGH THANKSGIVING DAY, WITH SEAS ONLY SUBSIDING SLIGHTLY FOR THE REST OF THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND AS NORTHEAST WINDS REMAIN AT MODERATE TO FRESH LEVELS.

Conditions 

We are experiencing some fall weather with cold front passage, a big front is expected on wed with strong winds. Cold water could be the result.
