Re: Current Vis Biscayne Bay / Elliott area and Miami

This forum is just blowing up with reports for Miami..... yesterday viz was pretty bad @ 5-10ft. on the patches between Key Biscayne and Government Cut. Very strange because the bay was top to bottom.

Re: Current Vis Biscayne Bay / Elliott area and Miami

Well how was it today?
I am hoping to get out over the weekend at least one day.
Is it worth it or is the vis still milky?

Went lobstering today. Vis within 3 miles of land is 5'-10' vis. This was during peak of high tide. I could only imagine at low tide.

Re: Current Vis Biscayne Bay / Elliott area and Miami

Any recent vis reports for this area? I am planning on Sunday, I figure if the seas lay down the water should clear up nicely by then.
Any thoughts?

Water on the reef was nice yesterday (10/29), patch reefs and lobster spots were very murky though. I caught the outgoing tide so its usually pretty crappy then anyways. Its been blowing out of the E/SE for a while now but will probably die down for the weekend.

Thanks for the report.
I am hoping that the calmer wind today will let the water clear a bit on the patch reefs. taking a few rods along just in case.

Re: Current Vis Biscayne Bay / Elliott area and Miami

No report, I would guess it will be milky on the reef because of all the wind this week.
If you get out Saturday make a report, I'm planning on going out Sunday.

Re: Current Vis Biscayne Bay / Elliott area and Miami

Glad to see the water is clearing up. I'm pretty sure it's ok to shoot sea trout, but I thought the mangrove snapper limit was 5 per person.
