Snook fishing is good close to the mangrove shorelines. And snapper and trout is also another area that has been successful. Tarpon is coming in behind. We have actually hooked some really big fish while out fishing. And also caught some monster trout while redfishig. We have been using scent baits like those from Fishbites and Gulp. Bring sharp worm hooks to rig these weedless because there is a lot of grass. You can go from shrimp to jerkbait or shads and do really well with this simple method of casting. Use split shot or worm bullet weights to adjust level.

In Biscayne Bay I have been fishing the flats and finger channels near Stiltsville and to the south. There have been bonefish, sharks, and permit on the flats. The finger channels have some big barracuda on the edges where the current pushes the bait. On the bottom you can catch mutton, mangrove, and hogfish snappers. Stalking the flats requires the right tide and a lot of patience these days but the rewards are awesome. Don't forget to flats close to the mainland. Sometimes they are vacant of fishermen and full of fish.

For late afternoon or evening fishing I would consider the cuts or bridges in the area. Make sure to bring live bait. And some strong line and poles. Give me a call and let's get out on the water.
