From bluefish to bonefish-Montauk to Biscayne

Report Date: November 5, 2008

Montauk rebounded as hoped! One of the best seasons in years as bass ate well from early September until I left at the end of October.
Bluefish were occasionally mixed in as expected but were of good size so if you had some wire on you did not mind at all.

The seemingly unending amount of bait (bay anchovy) keep the blitzes going right through slack tide some days. The albacore were strong for about a month and then faded after hurricane Ike passed by following a big NE blow that lasted a couple of days. This noreaster unfortunately caused the cancellation of the Redbone Tournament.

Cookie-cutter bass

Upon returning back to Biscayne Bay I had great conditions the first week of November with water temps in the high 70's.

Josh Nogar traveled from New Mexico for his first try at flyfishing for bones and scored!

This fish was caught by Josh Nogar of New Mexico,on a fly tied by Dave Goldberg of the Fly Shop of Ft. Lauderdale.
