Miami Area & Northern Biscayne Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Try drifting over the patch reefs and casting crab patterns on fly or live crabs suspended with a cork for big mutton snappers. If you find a spot that's producing go ahead and anchor up and put out a chum bag. Keeper sized yellowtails and muttons will find you. Use the lightest leader you can get away with.

Conditions 

The water temps are finally dropping after a very long and hot summer. They're down 7 degrees in the last 2 weeks. That bodes well for all species but especially bonefish.
Look for tarpon to start showing soon on their southbound migration. They'll be chasing mullet if they can find them.
