Fishing is Hot!

captjimw - 09/03/2011

The weather has been on the hot side and so the water temperatures. Fishing in Southeast Florida in Miami on Biscayne bay can be excellent this time of year. The key to success is starting early in the morning when water temperatures are at there coolest point of the day. Combine that early start with a day when the tide is low just after sunrise and your chances of finding tailing bonefish or permit increase dramatically. On mornings when the tide is high at dawn choose a day where the forecast  calls for calm conditions or fish shorelines that provide a lee if there is light wind. Look for waking fish, nervous water or a push. Keep an eye out for Permit motionless and suspended in three or four feet of water, often with just the tip of the top of the tail exposed. Tarpon can also be seen rolling at the surface under these conditions. Be stealthy and make delicate presentations to these fish and you will be rewarded.
