South Florida Bonefishin'
 
For those fellow flyfishers up north that are planning a trip down here in spring, you cant beat the bone fishing in South Biscayne Bay. Both of these were caught out of my presence (and not on fly!!!). They were taken on shrimp this past saturday. Marc and Greg were fishing the south west of biscayne bay and managed to spook more than they caught. serves them right for not taking me.

Make no "bones" about it there are some quality fish on the flats.

DOOD, those are LARGE! Shame they were dishonored with bait.

I'm SO glad to be within a fairly short drive to saltwater again.

Cliff,

One was 8+ and the other was 9+. like i said, now is the time to come down here to fish for bones. you should be out redfishin' again in no time. I will be glad to send you some patterns that i have been working on and see if they work in your neck of the woods. We are supossed to go this weekend (Marc and I... marc is the one in the dark colored shirt). Hopefully i get a shot at these monsters and show him how real men catch fish!!!!

Fysh,

convince them to head north instead of heading west. you will be greatly rewarded.

South End of Biscayne Bay. google earth or flash earth and look up biscayne bay, south of the port around coral gables.

I'll be fishin for real saturday, due to a change in scheduling, though only for bass and panfish since I've only got my light rods with me. Didn't grab my waders or boots either, either so I'm glad its supposed to be quite warm saturday.

River I'm headed to is kinda pretty-

looks like you are in for some good fishing. there is nothing wrong with catching large mouth and small mouth. those spots look great for gettin some serious fish. hope you have a full day of rod bending action.
