Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report
November is finally here and that means one thing –cold fronts. Even though we've already seen a couple of weak front come through the area the best is yet to come. Over the last couple of weeks the fishing has definitely ramped up. Unfortunately, I've been of the water for the last couple of weeks while I attend to some family health matters. During this time I have been able to keep up with the bite and conditions thanks to all of my fellow captains and friends.
First, let me say that if the numbers of sailfish we are seeing are any indication of things to come than we are in for an excellent season. I have spoken with several captains that reported getting as many as ten shots this past weekend. Most of the fish were caught on live baits fished under kites. Some of the fish were caught on flat lines as well.
Mixed in with the spindle beaks there has been a fair amount of mahi and kingfish being caught. Although these fish haven't been around in large numbers, they have made up for it in size. Most the dolphin and kings caught as of late have been in the gaffer category making anglers very happy.
Closer to shore the Spanish mackerel action has been good to excellent especially if you're in the right place at the right time. Tides can play an important part in this fishery and it is always a good idea to do your homework before you go. I always look forward to the mackerel fishing because it provides great action especially of kids as well as beginners. On days when the mackerel bite is going off they are an excellent target for artificial lures as well as fly tackle.
Well, there you have it. Now is the time to book a fishing charter in Miami for the upcoming season. Later on this month and into December tarpon will also begin to show up along our beaches and inlets. If you'd like more information about these or any other types of fishing opportunities give us a call or check us out on the web.
