Bonefish Permit Fishing Miami

29 Oct Miami flats fishing tours

The fishing for bonefish and permit has been solid in Miami. From Key Biscayne  all the way down to South Biscayne Bay, We have been finding a good amount of tailing fish in the early Morning hours and cruising or mudding fish through the day.

Chasing bones and permit

I had the pleasure to have Eduardo join me for a day of fly fishing in south Biscayne bay out of black point marina in homestead. We started the day looking for tailing fish and found a pod of four bonefish at the second spot we hit. Eduardo placed a very good shot but the fish ignored our offering and spooked off.

Then, we had one shot at a cruising permit that had better things to do rather than eating chicken feathers. Around mid day, we arrived to another flat and immediately spotted several fresh muds,  indicating the presence of fish in the area.

We immediately started to spot bones and got rewarded releasing a nice 7lb silver bullet, taken out of good size school of mudding fish.

Flyfishing for permit

We focused on permit for the remainder of the day, managing to get about 9 shots on fly but no takers. despite the lack of catching, any day that you get 9 shots at the permit is considered a decent day of permit fishing on any fly fisherman’s book.

If you are up to the challenge of catching these beautiful and smart fish on the long rod, give me a call and I will be more than happy to help you conquer the quest.
