Reel Limit Fishing welcomes you aboard! Located on the doorstep of Government Cut, with trips departing from beautiful Miami Beach Marina, you are minutes away from some of the best fishing South Florida has to offer. 

Captain Scott’s boat is a 33’ Hydra Sport center console built for fishing, yet comfortable enough for a family to enjoy their day on the water. He has a large canvas shade to put over the bow of the boat while anchored and reef fishing, to allow anyone that needs a break from the sun to still enjoy the day. There’s also a toilet on board, so you don’t need to worry about long days out on the water. The boat is fully equipped with all the necessary tools and electronics to maximize your fishing adventure.

Whether you prefer light tackle sport fishing, trolling, kite fishing, bottom fishing, or just want to catch something, you can do it.  Fishing is seasonal so don’t be afraid to ask what the crew’s been catching lately. You can go after Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish, Tarpon, Snook, Snapper, Grouper, as well as a variety of other species.

Live bait is highly recommended and can be purchased the morning of the trip or you can spend some time and catch bait on the way out. All fishing tackle, as well as fishing license, is included with all of the trips. Make sure to bring sunblock, a hat, sunglasses, and a snack. It’s also not a bad idea to bring a rain jacket in the summer.

Reel Limit Fishing has an experienced crew and will do everything in their power to make sure you have a wonderful time on the water. All of their trips are customizable and if there is something you are specifically wanting to catch, please let them know.

Member since September 2020
I grew up in New Jersey fishing offshore and inshore since I was able to walk. It was always a dream of mine to move to Florida and become a fishing guide so, in 2009, I moved to South Florida and began learning all the techniques that are unique to this area. Now I'm living that dream and would love to teach you everything I've learned over the years.
