Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

If you're an early riser than I am sure you have felt the cooler temperatures in the morning! Fall is here fishermen! About this time every year a tropical system or weak cold front will spark the baitfish schools that have been slowly sliding south for the winter to move a little faster. This year is no different than others. Hurricane Hermine got it started and the finger mullet schools have invaded our area. I haven't seen much in the way of Spanish mackerel or bluefish feeding on the mullet schools yet but the snook, jacks, barracudas and small tarpon that are in Biscayne Bay sure are. If you are interested in catching your first tarpon, a slot size snook or a powerful big jack crevalle then don't wait. You need to be fishing now!

sO IF YOUR 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!

If you read the Miami Herald in print or on the web you may have noticed that the Miami Herald has not had a Fishing Report for the past few weeks. I was asked by the Herald to stop writing that report. I was informed that the Sports Department had to release all of their free-lance writers due to a lack of funds. I am not sure if they will have a fulltimer pick up that article or not. Having grown up in South Florida I had the pleasure of reading Vic Dunaway, Jim Martinoff, Marty Klinkenberger, Jim Hardy and Sue Cocking's articles and fishing reports over my lifetime. I always looked forward to seeing those reports every Friday and Sunday and then Thursday and Sunday. It's sad that a fishing community like ours can't support a Fishing Report once a week. If I was asked to do it again I would not hesitate to do just that. I'm not sure if a letter to the editor or a call to Herald will make a difference but it may! If you contributed to that article while I was writing it I Thank You!

Miami Fishing Forecast:


Fall is here and the fishing in South Florida is about to explode. With water temperatures rising sea trout and snook will start their spawning seasons. Bigger fish and bigger numbers of fish! Spanish mackerel, bluefish and kingfish are heading north for the summer. As they pass the Miami area they always provide a months' worth of action. Big jack crevalles will be chasing baitfish schools in North Bay and big tarpon will be stealing baits intended for other fish. Offshore we will see kingfish and Spanish mackerel, bonitos, sailfish, dolphins and blackfin tuna feeding right alongside each other. In Flamingo in Everglades National Park we will see the return of all of the migratory birds as they fill the park and make unbelievable sunrise pictures. Fishing for snook, redfish, sheepshead, blackdrum, snapper, sea trout, jacks ladyfish, sharks, tripletail, cobia and more will be as e exciting light tackle fishing as one could wish for.L
