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 ALWAYS work.

Conditions 

Weather is on a warming trend and tarpon are eating flies and crabs. The flats are improving daily as the water has warmed significantly over the last week. We've seen several large schools of bonefish the last couple of days. Permit fishing has been outstanding this last week. Singles and doubles in the 20 lb range as well as large schools numbering in the 50's have been on their favorite flats.The latter school fish are in the 10 lb range.
