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 

Hopefully we have seen the last cold front of the season! Things have warmed up and the tarpon fishing has been very good. The last few days have yielded multiple permit shots on the flats and the channels have come alive with very good snapper and jack fishing, Yesterday I fished with a couple of my young anglers, 7+9 years old with their grandpa and they caught over 50 fish on the incoming tide. Keeper sized mangrove, mutton, and yellowtail as well as lots of yellow jacks in the 6-8 lb range, The falling tide yielded excellent fishing for ladyfish and jack crevalles.
Shark fishing has improved greatly as well! There are migratory tarpon starting to show on the outside of the Keys.
