Sam Can Fish – Miami

Get ready for some unbeatable freshwater fishing action with Sam Can Fish. Hit up the Blue Lagoon and see for yourselves these coveted shallow waters. They are among the few in the world where you can go after Tarpon and Snook, as well as Largemouth and Peacock Bass. Captain Sam Rojas will do his utmost to get you hooking in one of each. An avid angler himself, he can’t wait to share his passion with you.

You’ll fish from an 18’ Makee center console, designed specifically with fishing in mind. There’s plenty of space for up to 3 anglers on board and you’ll have full visibility to spot your target. Powered by a 115 HP Mercury engine, she also comes equipped with the most modern fishing technology. Along with the fishfinder and GPS, there’s also a wireless trolling motor to help you navigate even the shallowest spots.

The “Silver King” (Tarpon) and Snook are two of the nation’s favorite inshore fish species, and the two Bass species the favorite freshwater. What more could you want? Get ready for an almighty challenge to reel in these giants, and you can even take the Bass home for a delicious treat at the end of the day. Try fishing with live bait on light tackle for the best results, or let the captain know if you’d prefer to catch one on the fly.

Along with all the gear necessary to make your dream catch, Capt. Sam also provides sandwiches and drinks on board. If you’d like some beer, Sam’s your man – just let him know in advance. Feel free to bring your own cooler aboard too, if you’d prefer. With excellent fishing opportunities, an expert guide, and everything you could want for a fun day out, you just know that Sam Can Fish is calling your name!
