Miami Area & Northern Biscayne Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Good time of year to start exploring some of the channels between the flats for big blue runners, jacks, ladyfish, etc. When you find them don't hesitate to put one back out on a shark rig.

Conditions 

The last 2 cold fronts have dropped water temps 6-8 degrees in the Bay depending on where you are. This means fishing the flats can be very tough in the mornings but things do change as the sun warms things up in the afternoon. Combined with an incoming tide you should start to see bonefish and sharks in the pm.
Conversely the cooler water is a boon to our deeper water species such as mutton snapper, jacks, blue runners, mackerel, etc.
