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 

When the weather stays consistent the fishing has been good. The channels have yielded some very good snapper and jack fishing, 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. The flats have been better on the rising tide.
Shark fishing is very good. Most of the migratory tarpon have moved past us but we have out local tarpon in several spots. Fish average 75 pounds.
Permit fishing has been very good on the flood tide.
