Miami, Miami Beach and Ft. Lauderdale Fishing Report

Capt. Gil Gutierrez
June 8, 2016
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

Summer time is officially upon us and the outside temps confirm what we all suspected, it's going to be a hot one! With some temperatures hovering in the 90 degree range it's time to fish deep.
This is the time of year where we change our style of fishing probing deeper cooler water in search of fish. Surface water temperature can range in the 85-90 degree range but just 20-40 feet deeper water can be in the 70 degree range. So what that means is that we start to bottom fish a little more. We also start to run offshore looking for mahi-mahi or dolphin and trolling planers in search of kings and wahoo.
So with that being said what are you catching you may be asking? Let's start with the most popular gamefish on earth and the one everyone always ask about this time of year mahi-mahi, or dolphin.
I have done several mahi trips and they have all been successful. Most of the fish have been schoolies to gaffer size mahi but there have been some larger ones mixed in. We have had all of our success running and gunning for the fish catching them under birds and floating debris. We were also able to add a wahoo on our last outing that we caught on a deep bait. For the next couple of months this what a majority of our fishing will entail so if you're a mahi fisherman give me a call and let's set up a trip. I offer two types of mahi trips. One is a dedicated mahi trip where we simply run and stay offshore the whole day. The other type of mahi trip is where we run offshore fish for a while catching several mahi and then finish the day off on the reef. It's your choice all you have to do is let me know what you want to do.
The reef fishing is still pretty good with amberjacks and muttons being our best bet. The AJ's have been biting well with multiple fish being taken from just one wreck. This time of year I also do yellowtail trips provided we have current. Last year we did very well with the tails and we were able to add some groper and muttons to the fish box while yellowtail fishing. Kingfish are starting to show up in good numbers and it's not unusual to limit out in the summer. We also did catch a couple of blackfin tunas but they seem to be thinning out a little. I'm not talking about those 2-5 pound tunas that you see offshore while mahi fishing. I'm talking about the 20-30 pound tunas that you catch on the reef. Sailfish have definitely slowed for me. We caught one last week but the sailfish bite has slowed down. As you can see by the pictures there is still plenty going on fishing wise we just have to make a decision to stay on the reef or run offshore the choice is yours! Give me a call and let's set up a trip for dad. As always please keep our men and women of the armed services and our first responders in your prayers. Until next time, Best of Lucků
