Florida Bay Backcountry Fishing with Capt. Mike Patterson

opens in a new windowcapt-mike-pattersonAs the wind stops blowing in the Florida bay, the Snook are really starting to turn on. The Trout are still doing very well also. It’s a perfect place to go catch a whole bunch of Snapper for a great meal and get a chance at some Snook and Redfish. The Shark action is very hot right now! We are catching everything from a Bonnethead Shark for the kids, all the way up to Lemons, Black Tips and even the Bull Sharks are starting to show up for the warm temperatures of the Florida bay.

On the flats, the Bonefish are not showing up like they used to in the past but great for taking out a fly rod and throwing at them. On the Tarpon note, it is definitely Tarpon season on the fly rods, they’re moving up and down the flats on the Oceanside and on the Bayside! Come on down and get a shot at those monster Tarpon!
