Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report
Happy New Year my past, current and future clients. I hope everyone had a great Holiday season and is enjoying the new Year! It has been some time since my last fishing report. So that I don't bore you too much with a long report let me tell you that the fishing in almost every location that I fish has been quite good.
Biscayne Bay has had plenty of action from Spanish mackerel, bluefish, jack crevalles, small kingfish, bluerunners and ladyfish on the surface and a good amount of mangrove, mutton, lane and yellowtail snappers on the bottom. We have also had some gag, black and red groupers in the bay however they have been mostly under size fish that have provided plenty of rod bending action. We are catching these fish with live pilchards fished from under a Cajun Thunder float, free lined or on the bottom. We are also catching fish on Rapala X Raps and Hookup lure jig heads tipped with a Gulp soft plastic. The hooks we are using are Mustad Ultra Point short shank hooks. On some of the warmer days we have had some decent daytime snook action.
The Offshore fishing for the most part has been slow except for some decent daytime bottom fishing for black groupers. Gag groupers, lesser amberjacks, large Spanish mackerel, mutton, mangrove, lane and yellowtail snappers.
Fishing in Flamingo has been good. The conditions haven't though and that is the key to a successful Flamingo fishing day. When the winds aren't blowing redfish, snook, black drum, sheepshead and sea trout have been biting well. When the winds are blowing the fish have not been cooperating. Offshore in the Gulf tripletail and Spanish mackerel are biting.
The freshwater fishing for largemouth bass is just getting started. On my last freshwater fishing charter in the Glades the water levels had fallen by at least three feet from where they had been. Once that level falls another a foot or two the fish should be stacked up in the canals and ready to jump on anything thrown close to them. That could happen any day.
The pictures tell the story. During this new year there have been more great days fishing on the "Get Em".
All of these fish were caught using Daiwa and Shimano reels, Key Largo and Daiwa rods, Rapala hard plastics, Cajun Thunder floats, Hookup lure jig heads, Mustad hooks and Wish braided line, PLine monofilament, Aquatic Nutrition Inc, Chum.
If you're interested in any of these species and looking to get out on the water for 4, 6 or 8 hours then give me a call and let's see what we can do!
