Southern Biscayne Bay & Key Largo

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Tarpon are on the move on the coast, grab the 10-12wt and a good double haul. Look for fish rolling or cruising, some will be near the bottom, some rolling "high and happy". Present the fly so it ends up near their face any way you can do that. A 40-80lb bite tippet is needed depending on the size of the tarpon and other factors. The fly of choice is a fly you like, patterns have little to do with the eat most times of the year, its the "mood of the fish and the presentation" that counts most. Don't raise the rod on the eat and horse the fish to the boat never letting up on the pressure, the best bet is to take the tippet to the breaking point this takes years of experience but this will keep the fish from becoming shark bait....

Seven-day forecast 

HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO DOMINATE THE AREA INTO NEXT WEEK. EASTERLY WIND AND A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR SHOWERS WILL PREVAIL.

Conditions 

East winds will prevail but watch out for afternoon thunderstorms and lighting...
