Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

Did a quick trip to Flamingo and managed to boat 5 slot snook and 6 redfish on artificials and light tackle.
10/3/2012 Flamingo Report
On Saturday we stayed out a bit longer, and were awarded by an incredibly Hot bite for the whole day. We boated 15 snook to 34", with the 5 largest snook taken on topwater plugs. The strikes were insane! We also boated 23 redifsh to 25" on artificials, two trout (made for two backcountry slams), black drum, mangrove snapper, spanish mackerel, goliath grouper and more on bucktail jigs.
10/7/2012 Offshore Miami Report
Today we got out and managed to find a bit of life in around 850'. A triple of gaffer dolphin made things interesting in the cockpit, especially since we were using 10lb class spinning tackle. We found a log floating and released a few tiny wahoo's (weehoo). We followed this action up further inshore towards the end of the day with two bonita and two snake kingfish.
Miami Fishing Forecast:
Inshore action in Flamingo will continue to remain consistent until the water cools down further into fall and winter. Steady numbers of redfish, trout, snook ,sheepshead, black drum and other species can be targetted with shots at multiple species always present.
Offshore Miami, we are expecting the sailfish bite to turn on as the first cold fronts begin to move through. Dolphin can be found offshore inside of the 1000' line, with many larger individuals in the area. Our fish have been between 12 and 20lbs, though we have heard of larger fish being caught. Kingfish are thick on the edge, though they aren't very large. All in all, fall action is finally underway and we are expecting the tarpon to move into the inlets soon as well.
