Miami Fishing Report

Capt. Gil Gutierrez
January 16, 2017
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

It's been blowing to say the least! A nonstop east wind has been making for some lumpy seas but pretty decent fishing.
The high east winds have heated up the mahi-mahi bite. There have been some mahi-mahi on the reef as of late which is nice considering that you don't have to make huge runs offshore to find some fine eating fish. Most of these mahi-mahi have been caught while kite fishing for sailfish. The sailfish bite has been good and we have been getting a shot at some on every charter. What has kept the sailfish bite from getting hot is the inconsistent north current and clean blue water. If these 2 factors line up then the sailfish bite could really go off. Like I said we are getting our shots and catching our share of sailfish, but no huge numbers.
The bottom bite has been very good. We have been catching amberjack pushing the 40# mark. But once customers catch a couple of these fish they kind of wave a white flag and beg to catch something else. We have been catching these fish almost at will. Unfortunately, grouper season has closed until May 1. So you may want to consider that date if you would like to go grouper fishing. The muttons continue to hit the ice and some decent fish are being caught. I'm waiting for the tarpon to move in decent numbers before I start posting reports about them. Once they are here then I will start taking some tarpon charters so stay tuned. The kingfish have also been biting pretty well. We have been catching them while trolling and live baiting in on the reef. So there you have a breakdown of what is happing right now. If you would like to get in on the action give me a call and let's go get tight! As always, best of luck and may God bless our service men, women and first responders.
