Fish the Flats on Biscayne Bay
Sight fishing the clear flats of Biscayne Bay for bonefish is one of the most challenging light tackle angling endeavors on the planet.
Bonefish is difficult to spot on the flats; they are very leery of anglers, noise and can even sense the subtle motion of a cast.
For these and many other reasons, most anglers enter the sport by booking a charter with a reputable bonefish guide. A good bonefish guide will have years of experience in fishing for these world class fish, is a good teacher, has the necessary patience to help the angler on the bow and knows how and when to approach a productive flat.
Chartering a fishing guide who specializes in bonefish will surely flatten your learning curve. In Miami’s Biscayne Bay, sight fishing the flats for bonefish takes place in clear shallow flats where at times the water is so shallow that the bonefish’s tail will come out of the water as they feed.
When this occurs, it is referred to as “tailing bonefish” and is the most exciting and challenging way to fish for bonefish. While poling the flats on a bonefish charter, I also encounter permit as well as tarpon (tarpon during the tarpon run), sharks, barracudas plus an assortment of colorful non-game fish. Prime time for fishing the flats for bonefish are spring and fall but bonefishing in Miami’s Biscayne Bay is good all year long. In the spring and fall large number of fish can be spotted; but the fall is when we can see the largest number of big fish. During the winter we can still see an abundance of fish, but often at bigger depths due to the warmer waters. Summer time brings calm winds, smooth seas and sights of large schools of fish pushing water and tailing, always a treat for a bonefish charter client.
Spinning and fly tackle are both used while fishing for bonefish, permit, and tarpo; however, spinning gear is most popular. So, whether you are a novice or an expert, if you want to see what Biscayne Bay bonefishing is all about, give me a call or drop me an email and let’s book a bonefish charter. Once you’re here, we'll get you hooked…forever.
