Miami Area & Northern Biscayne Bay

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Full sink lines with baitifsh patterns or artificials will work well in the channels if you are interested in some big yellow jacks or mutton snapper. Throw in some yellowtails here and there and you can fish for dinner if you are so inclined. Make sure you are getting to the bottom of the water column. The channels are typically 10' deep.

Conditions 

Water temps dropped a bit last week with a couple of weak cold fronts moving through. This has made for some erratic conditions on both the flats and in the channels. One day it's hard to find fish and the next day they're everywhere. I had a day last week where we caught over 50 fish in a couple of hours. It was a mix of big blue runners, jack crevalles, and mutton snappers.
