South Florida Fishing at it's Finest!

Capt. Alan Sherman
October 9, 2017
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

For the past month or so South Florida has been harassed by Hurricanes and foul weather. In between the rain and wind and at times during the wind and rain we have had some incredible fishing. I have had only a few charters recently due to these weather conditions. You can't blame a client for not wanting to fish through gale warnings or a hurricane but that hasn't kept me from making a few casts to see what's happening in our local waters.

Fall is here in South Florida and so is the baitfish schools and the large fish that feed on them. On Saturday I threw my Lee Fisher cast net two times and filled my two big live wells with frisky finger mullet and pilchards. The baitfish will stick around in the bay and along the ocean shorelines through December. Chumming with the live baitfish has resulted in large and small snook, lots of jack crevalles, sea trout, snapper, grouper, Spanish mackerel, kingfish, barracudas, tarpon and sharks. We have caught these fish with live baits hooked to a Mustad Ultra Point short shank hook, with Cajun Thunder floats, with Rapala Skitter Walk V's, Williamson vertical jigs and Hookup lure jig heads tipped with a soft plastic bait. The Daiwa BG reels I recently received handled these fish with no problem. All of this fishing has taken place in Biscayne Bay and offshore of Miami.

Flamingo in Everglades National Park re opened on Saturday and the reports that I have received from fellow anglers is that there are lots of hungry small tarpon, snook, redfish and sea trout to be had.

Looking at our weather maps it looks like we will have a break from the tropical systems and a return of our more normal fall weather patterns.

My 22' Tournament Edition Pathfinder Bay Boat powered by my Yamaha 250 SHO the "Get Em" is up and running and waiting for you to step aboard!

So, what are you waiting for? Let's get out on the water and see what kind of memories we can create!
