Southern Biscayne Bay & Key Largo

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Old man winter is here, in the bay when this happens try the north bay for trout where its sheltered! I like a 6wt with a clouser or try a popper. Find current and bait fish at times on the flats edges. Use a 20lb bite tippet and strip slowly for the take, also bend the barb down since trout have delicate mouth bones. They fight good when over 20" but smaller fish come to the surface thrash and are then easy to pull to the boat. Its a good alternative to bones when the weather get tough.

Seven-day forecast 

THROUGH THE LOCAL WATERS LATE TONIGHT INTO WEDNESDAY. WINDS MAY INCREASE TO NEAR 30 KNOTS BRIEFLY OVER THE GULF WATERS. SEAS WILL BUILD TO 10 FEET IN THE OUTER GULF OF MEXICO WATERS WEDNESDAY, AND UP TO 8 FEET IN THE ATLANTIC BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THANKSGIVING DAY. MARINE CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN ON THE ROUGH SIDE THROUGH THANKSGIVING DAY, WITH SEAS ONLY SUBSIDING SLIGHTLY FOR THE REST OF THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND AS NORTHEAST WINDS REMAIN AT MODERATE TO FRESH LEVELS.

Conditions 

We are experiencing some fall weather with cold front passage, expect some north type winds this week to 30kts slowing by Friday out of the NE.
