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 

A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA TODAY, THEN INTO SOUTH FLORIDA EARLY TUESDAY. THE FRONT WILL CLEAR THE SOUTHERN PENINSULA BEFORE MIDDAY TUESDAY. NORTH WINDS WILL SHARPLY INCREASE BEHIND THE FRONT ON TUESDAY WITH RAPIDLY DETERIORATING MARINE CONDITIONS. WINDS WILL BECOME NORTHEAST LATE TUESDAY NIGHT AND CONTINUE RATHER STRONG INTO THURSDAY BEFORE WINDS DECREASE SOME FOR THE END OF THE WEEK. ROUGH SEAS CAN BE EXPECTED THROUGH MID-WEEK WITH ONLY SLOW IMPROVEMENT BY THE END OF THE WEEK.

Conditions 

We are experiencing some fall weather with cold front passage, expect some north type winds this week from 15-20kts until the end of the week when the forecast calls for calmer winds.
