Coming off a windy month of March fishing 24 out of 31 days, it seemed like the wind never stopped. The bone fishing in Miami’s Biscayne Bay as been phenomenal for the past three weeks. I’ve mainly had fly anglers while bone-fishing and permit fishing, and for the first time fly anglers that have never bone-fished before, it has been a little overwhelming due to the wind.
I’ve been mixing it up from Biscayne Bay to Flamingo Everglades National Park and Islamorada. The red fishing in the backcountry has been great, with plenty of schools and tailing fish around. Whitewater Bay has had lots of big trout and reds along with a few snook around as well.
The tarpon fishing in the back county has been pretty good, but challenging when the wind’s blowing pushing them down deep.
It’s April now and it seems like the wind finally stopped blowing and it’s prime time poon season now. I’ll be tarpon fishing primarily for the next three months and I will be down in the Florida Keys in Islamorada chasing tarpon.
I have Five days in April open and some date still mid June. So if you’re looking to book a trip, don’t wait to long because they’re filling up fast.
