An October Fishing Trip In Miami, Florida

Capt. Dave Kostyo
October 21, 2017
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

It's been a long drought since my last fishing report. It's normal for business to be on the slow side this time of year. It always makes me happy when I get the opportunity to take someone charter fishing and that day finally came.

Matt, Bob, and Drew came to Miami for a break. During their stay they wanted to fish for a half day and get out on the water. We started off with trolling the planers and that produced 2 kingfish. Next, we slow trolled herring on flat lines and the downrigger. The first several hits resulted in baits being chopped in half. Then we hooked a kingfish and added it to the fish box. After two more chopped baits, I put a stinger hook on. The action slowed until just about 2 minutes till lines out. The downrigger produced again and we added the final fish to the box.

The downrigger saw most of the action when fished between 70 to 110 feet down. The flat lines only had 2 hits and they were both chopped baits.
