Fall Action picking up off Miami, Sailfish, Blackfin, and more

Capt. Nick Gonzalez
October 22, 2012
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

Went out for a late afternoon trip from Coconut Grove. We hit Bug Light for bait and after a little while we caught enough spanish sardines and cigar minnows for the evening. They weren't very big kite baits but they would definitely do... We also netted some ballyhoo and we were off. We had some time constraints so we went straight out front and put up 2 kites with 6 baits. Right off the bat we caught a nice mackerel and a skipjack tuna in 120'. After a decent lull in the action we had drifted north of Key Biscayne. A decent current rip had pushed out with the tide and conditions were improving. After a few minutes, a fish hit the right mid. A beautiful sail started greyhounding in circles through the spread and the fight was on. Just after we hooked this fish, the left short went off. This ended up being a small shark which we boated and released in quickly. After a fun fight we released the sail as well.

We reset both kites after the action and after a few minutes, the left long and right short got nailed. The fish fought like tuna and we brought them to the boat pretty quickly. They were decent sized Fall blackfin, which we bled and put in the fish box in short order. We followed up these 2 fish with some more blackfin tuna. We ended up with 4. We called it a day after these fish.

Final Tally- 1 solid sailfish, 4 blackfin, a skipjack tuna, a nice mackerel, and a small shark

Miami Fishing Forecast:

Fall action is picking up. There are reliable numbers of swordfish offshore, sailfish are starting to push through, kingfish, and mahi are around on the edge, and fishing should only improve as winter comes around.
