Fly Fishing in Biscayne Bay

Every avid fly angler should experience outstanding Biscayne Bay fly fishing at least once in their lifetime. This is South Florida’s hub for fly rodders, where the bite is excellent all year, the fish are big, and the waters are crystal clear.
 
Anglers come to the bay with not-so-modest expectations of fulfilling all their fly fishing dreams, and more often than not, that’s exactly what happens!
 

What to Expect

The holy trifecta of the bay’s flats are Bonefish, Permit, and the mighty Tarpon. They’re the talk of the area, and the fiercest and fastest fighters. They’re also the  ones that will challenge your skills to the maximum. But you better believe that it’ll be worth it.
 
Nothing beats outsmarting Bonefish – the “Grey Ghost of the Flats” – or coming face to gills with a massive Silver King (Tarpon) and winning. Want to practice your accuracy and stealth? Large Permit roam these waters and they’re always hungry. All you have to do is come up with a cunning fishing strategy.
 
Depending on what you’d like to target, you’ll use 8–12 wt rods. Lighter options are reserved for Bonefish. Twelve  wt rods are the right choice for chasing giant Tarpon during their spring migration through the bay. You’ll also need a reliable saltwater reel with plenty of backing.
 
When it comes to flies, your charter captain will recommend what’s best to use, and more often than not, they’ll have all the necessary fly fishing gear on the boat. This is very convenient if you don’t feel like lugging around your equipment around.
 

What to Bring

You can easily find Biscayne Bay fly fishing guides anywhere from Miami to Homestead, so all you need to do is pick a location and a captain. Licenses and gear will be provided for you, which makes things much easier. Come aboard with some snacks, drinks, and sunscreen, and get ready for a fishing trip that will open new horizons for you!

I was given advice from friends that fishing above the keys would not be that ideal. However, we had a great time and expect to catch more fish in the area soon.

Yes, but know your personal limitations. Choppy water is rough if you suffer from motion sickness. Prepare properly and enjoy.

Focus on the guide, not the boat. You don't need a 30ft boat to run around in the Miami bays and get to the good fishing!

Either find a decent charter, have some friends who know the area, rent a boat to get to the spots where others are, or go to a jetty or pier. Can't go wrong with jetty or pier fishing and putting some shrimp/crab/ squid on a setup with a hook and a weight like a Carolina rig. Plenty of exotics in the canals as well that will bite even in December. Just watch for gators and snakes!

It's going to cost more than they tell you when you book the trip. If you don't have your own rods It was only an extra $13 But if we didn't have the extra on us it would have been a problem. We paid a $33 deposit and we expected the rest would cost us 77 but that's not what happened when we got there

Do your homework and check out your options for the experience you are looking for. Remember there are no guarantees that you will catch fish but the likelihood of doing so is high. As well prior to booking ensure there ae no hidden extra fees.
