February 2007 Fishing Report
Biscayne Bay:
If you are able to time the weather patterns to work in your advantage Biscayne Bay can be very productive working grounds for all your Bonefish chasing needs. The key to your success lies primarily on water temperature. Bonefish are most active in water temperatures above 72 Degrees. During these winter months cold fronts can drag the bay water temperatures below this critical number and force the bonefish to refuge to deeper warmer water. This is why you will often see bonefish in large schools waking in 2-4 feet of water. So what this means is if your temperature gauge is indicating colder water you should move toward the edge of the flat and begin your search.
Fender Point
Burger King Flat
Turkey Point
Work the west side of the Bay. Because of the darker bottom you can expect 1-3 Degrees warmer water temperature than the East side.

Tight Lines,
Captain Rich Smith
