The summer fishing is only getting better. The water temperatures are cooling down a bit due to the late night rain storms passing through. With the cooler water temperatures we had all week I’ve been finding the fish being more active and feeding more aggressively through out the day especially the bonefish.
The tarpon fishing early in the morning in Biscayne Bay still remains strong. This has been best at first light, so being at your first spot while the sun is coming up is the way to go. The bonefishing remains consistent with plenty of small fish around to be caught. The fish are raging between 4 and 7 pounds with an occasional 8 to 10 pound fish in the mix.
With the fall coming up soon, we will start to see a consistent amount of big bonefish around. The fall bonefishing is when you want to be down here if you’re looking to catch a double digit bonefish.
The highlight of the week was the second annual Pace High School Fishing Tournament. This is a fun tournament that caters to inshore and offshore fisherman as well as beginners and experts alike. I had the pleasure of fishing with 9 year old Elysse Bernstein and her father Dennis. Elysse took top honors with 43 redfish releases to take top junior angler and second place overall inshore division.
If you want to book some futures dates especially for the fall bonefishing, give me a call so we can go over some dates. There are also some great tournaments coming up so if you’re interested in learning more about them, give me a call.
