Main | Been mixing it up lately...snook & tarpon at night, permit, snapper, grouper and barracuda during the day...even a little offshore action »

The bite is heating up in Biscayne Bay. Great thing this time of year is the variety of species available...


Grouper and snapper have been responding very well to live bait. There have been plenty of large mangrove and mutton snapper around, as well as keeper-size gag grouper.  All though, grouper must be released unharmed until May 1st, they are still great sport, especially on light tackle. Anyone looking for a fish that really pulls hard, shallow water gags are the way to go.  We've had them doing back-flips out of the water and we've had some explosive surface hits, even got a few on fly just for fun.

Snook are another species that have been very active lately. There seem to be good numbers around, and they will absolutely pound a live pilchard, but they'll eat a well-presented artificial, as well. Along with the species that we've had on the last couple trips, there are plenty of others to target, those being barracuda & sharks, tarpon, bonefish, permit and over-size redfish.  Those are all possible but we just haven't had the time in a day's fishing to do it all. I have a few days available in the coming months, so give me a call and let's go catch some fish and make some memories!
