    For those of you in the South Florida region/Miami area, if you had to pick one month of the year to fish Biscayne Bay, what would it be?

    Just in general, but the usual species targeted in Biscayne Bay--bonefish, tarpon, permit.

    I'm a big winter fan. December to March/April. Tarpon go nuts on the shrimp flush, especially in nearby downtown Miami at night. Larger barracuda move onto the flats and adjacent channels and can be caught on light gear and tube lures. Never fished for permit and bones so I couldn't say there.

    March is a windy month in S Fla. Nov.-March the cold fronts start and will shut down sight fishing for a day or two. June-Aug. are hot and you are best fishing for bones early or late. Transition months like April, May, September and October can be very good depending on the weather conditions.

    Here is a pic of a friends skiff as he sets out across the Bay for some bones.
