Miami Area & Northern Biscayne Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Large blacktip sharks are hunting on the flats and this is the time to get a response with a fly. A very large orange fly at that. If you're fishing with spin you can throw large popping plugs for an amazing strike. Of course a chunk of any bait fish with a cork to keep it off the bottom will almost always work.
