Bit of help in Biscayne

I just recently got a skiff (carolina skiff jv17) fully loaded for inshore fishing. i need some help for finding inshore fish. (i mostly fish inshore)I need help like were to launch, what to use, and what to look for i do have a polling stick / platform and trolling motor so i can get shallow so any help would be greatly appreciated



(Reds,Trout,snook)

Thanks,

    There is a ramp on NW 79 Street, south side of road, just east of ICW bridge. 100 Yards south of ramp is bird island. Work the grass flats on both sides on a moving tide with either live shrimp on a popping cork or I prefer a DOA shrimp bounced off the bottom or a DOA Cal. Look for the sand in between the grass and cast to the sand. There is also a ramp south of there on McArthur Parkway called Watson Island Park and grass flats just south of there also. Crandon Park on Rickenbacker Causeway has a ramp although very expensive to use that bridge. Further south is Blackpoint Marina, Mathesion Hammock, and Homestead Bayfront Park. You won't find redfish up north by 79 Street, they are usually further south along with bonefish. Never had any daytime luck with snook, only at night on docks and sea walls.

    Where do you live and how far are you willing to travel ? Can you fish during the week ?

    you can fish the flats in the middle part of the bay on that boat.. just watch the tides.... areas like solider key and such are pretty productive if you are looking for bonefish.. for snook/tarpon, stick to the bridges...
