    Biscayne Bay Smörgåsbord

    Hit North Biscayne Bay about 0800 looking for whatever. Tried the trout flats for an hour and a half with nothing to show for it but some pinfish-chewed up soft baits. Since bluefish and mackerel had been showing up lately, I headed to the deep channel and tossed on a refurbished crystal minnow. Quickly hook up with a nice Spanish Mack, followed a few minutes later by a nice bluefish. The bite died again, so I paddled south of the causeway and got a just keeper size trout and another bluefish. Not exactly what I was expecting for the day, but it filled up the fish-bag and got a bend in the rod. All the fish were caught trolling today, even the trash fish.








    Gotta get a lizardfish in the mix.

    You did better than most Roger, congrats.
    Loki and I were a bit south of you but all I got was undersized trout, a houndfish and a very determined baby barracuda

    No tarpon around? Been planning to head down that way since offshore has been a bust lately and I'm reluctant to drop the money driving to ENP.

    I thought about going offshore since the weather was perfect, but I'm glad I decided to take it easy and stay in the bay since that's where the fish were. Other than the trout, the other fish were all in deeper water over bare bottom. Did not see any tarpon rolling about. Back in the old days the Spanish Macs would run through Rickenbacker and Bear Cut bridges from time to time, so those areas are worth a troll if you're in the vicinity.
