Miami Beach area.
This past few weeks have been ok, we were waiting for the big mullet runs. The thing that happens every year is it's flat calm then gets windy and then the mullet push down the beach and inside the bays. Well we had some mullet push threw N. Biscayne Bay but really nothing great following. I did have a couple days down the beach following football field size mullet schools with giant Tarpon exploding from the bottom up through the school. There were Jacks , Blue fish and Sharks mixed in but Tarpon is the Target! They were moving really fast and they Tarpon weren't interested.
The inside of Biscayne Bay is holding some Trout, Jacks, Ladyfish and a few Snook but for the most part its been pretty tough. This is the reason I prefer fishing Flamingo there is some much more to do down in the FloridaBay , Whitewater Bay and The Gulf of Mexico. The baits have been running down the Gulf of Mexico where there have been plenty of Tarpon blowing them up, there also has been Pilchards and I lucked into some Menhaden. The Menhaden get destroyed by the Snook, big Snook! I was with Bob and Charlie this week and found Pilchards, Herring, Menhaden and Mullet. The fish really enjoyed the Menhaden but when we started chumming with Pilchards we turned the water white with foam lots of fun lots of fish. They caught Jacks, big Snappers, Redfish and Trout. We fished a long day, we had some interesting weather which made the day difficult. The key is to stick it out and use the baits we found, and it produced plenty of Snook.
The bait schools are moving through on both coast and its allot of fun but its hard keeping up with them. The water temps at are starting to drop and that's what we wait for these next few weeks are going to be fun.
