Flats Fishing Biscayne Bay Miami

Biscayne Bay Flats Fishing

A world class fishery located within sight of Downtown Miami. Anglers from all over the world pass by this Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon paradise on their way to the Florida Keys. So close, yet a world away, the flats of Biscayne Bay are home to some of the biggest bonefish anywhere. Shots at double digit size fish are a reality. Permit roam the flats and channel edges and Tarpon from juvenile to over 100 pounds make the famous Flats Grand Slam a real possibility. Whether traveling to Miami for business or pleasure you owe it to yourself to see the aquamarine waters and lush grass flats that hold the three most famous flats species.

Miami Bonefish

The bonefish in Biscayne Bay remains consistent year round. Mild winters allow us to target bonefish while the rest of the country is draped in snow. Spring, summer and early fall are very productive and allow us to fish longer days. Prime date begin in February and continue into July. The dog days of summer can push them off the flats during the hottest parts of the day but it makes for excellent fishing early and late. We target them on fly or with hand tied jigs on light tackle. This is the sight fishing pinnacle. If you have never experienced the blazing speeds of a bonefish, it is one you will never forget.

Miami Permit Fishing

The fish everyone loves to hate. Permit fishing in Biscayne Bay gets going in March and is at its peak from May through October. Although we see Permit in the Bay year round, the cooler months for permit greatly depend on weather and water temperature. If you want the ultimate challenge on fly or test your skills with a hand tied jig, there is nothing like a Permit.

Miami Tarpon Fishing

Each year anglers flock to South Florida and The Keys for “tarpon season” March through July hoping to dance with the silver king. The migrating fish begin in the spring and will be in Biscayne in early summer before they continue up the east coast. During the warmer months we can find the smaller and juvenile tarpon in early mornings before we proceed to stalk bonefish and permit.  For those looking for the Grand Slam it is a real possibility from March through October.
