Biscayne Bay fishing report-tarpon

Pompano Beach, Port Everglades, To Biscayne Bay

Snook and big jacks and permits can be found along the Oceanside beaches and in Government Cut.. The snook and big jacks are eating live threadfin herring, mullet and jigs fished close to the bottom. The Permit and poons are eating crabs.

Offshore anglers fishing near the surface with live threadfin herring in 120 to 160 feet of water early and late in the day have been scoring on kingfish to 30 pounds, a few blackfin tuna, bonitos and a few sailfish. Mutton snappers and a few yellowtails are being caught on the deeper rocky ledges in the daytime. Hard chumming is a must to get the action hot!

Dolphin are being caught under large floating weed out in 800 feet of water. Swordfishng has been good but not a lot of large around. Bottom reef fishing on the reefs has been very good for mutton, mangrove and yellowtail snappers. Chumming and fishing live bait on the smallest size sinker it takes to get your bait near the bottom.

Biscayne Bay Inshore

Sea trout are on the grass flats from Haulover Inlet south to Card Sound Road. Fishing live pilchards and mojarras under a float or casting shrimp is producing most of the fish. Mangrove snappers, lots of barracudas and a few snook, jacks and tarpon are feeding in the nearby channels adjacent to the grass flats. Snook and small tarpon can be targeted at night next to the bridge shadow lines and lights.
