Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report
The Yellowtail Snapper bite has been very consistent on the reefs South of Fowey Rocks. In the past month my customers have taken home quit a few snapper diners.
Let's start with Hector, Eric and Edwin who fished with me on a beautiful Saturday morning. We fished Triumph Reef between 50' and 70' using Silver Sides and Bonito chunks, within 3 hours or so we had our limit of Yellowtails, 3 Bonitos and released a beautiful Black Grouper.
On March 27th I fished with Matt and 3 of his buddies. Due to time restrictions they only had time for a four hour afternoon trip, we fished the county wreck only had a Black Fin Tuna to show for our efforts.
On April 9th I fished with Gary, Martin and their sons, they wanted to catch some snappers for a get together they were having that evening. We fished Triumph Reef again between 50' and 70' using Silver Sides and Bonito chunks, within a few hours we had our limit of Yellowtails, 2 Bonitos, 3 massive Nurse Sharks and released a beautiful Black Grouper.
The next trip was with Frank, George, Andrew and Luke, George and Andrew were in town for Franks wedding and wanted to bend some rods before the festivities begun. On this day the conditions were less than favorable with dirty water and a South current so I decided to run South in search of better conditions. I found cleaner water South of TR2 and decided to give it a shot. We ended the day with 2 Barracudas, 10 Yellowtails and a Cero Mackerel.
We can expect good catches of Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) and Snappers. The Snapper fishing will continue to improve through the summer months. If you have any questions or want to enjoy a day of fishing with friends and family give me a call. I still have plenty of dates available for May and June.
