The flats, lagoons and mangroves of Biscayne Bay are my home water and I spend most of my days chasing bonefish, tarpon, and permit. It’s still amazing to me that you can be fishing a sprawling, beautiful, and pristine grass flat within one hour of downtown Miami. It’s not a secret that Biscayne Bay is home to some of the best shallow water angling in the world, but i’m always ready to go where the fish are – whether that’s the Florida Keys or Everglades National Park.
I keep my boat on the trailer and am highly mobile – this allows me to adapt to daily conditions to maximize the chances of putting my anglers on the best possible bite. During the peak of Tarpon season, you can bet I will be heading to Islamorada where giant “silver kings” can be intercepted on their migratory journey. If it is prime time for Snook, then we may head to the backcountry mangroves of Flamingo Everglades National Park, where trophy “line siders” lay in wait to ambush baitfish. If the bonefish and permit are storming the flats in the back country of Key Largo, then we are off to the Keys to prowl the flats. The bottom line is – we’re going where the bite will be best!
