Blue Moon Fishing Charters

15000 Collins Ave
Miami Beach FL, United States

Book a trip with Blue Moon Fishing Charters and come aboard for an unforgettable day off the coast of Miami Beach, Florida. Captain JL Denis has been sailing his entire life, a passion which led him around the world. He settled in Florida in 2000, where he operates family oriented fishing charters. Join him and come see what you’ll reel in next!

Step aboard the Blue Moon II, a 25’ Grady White originally built in 1987 and restored in 2008. The vessel is fitted with top of the line gear and advanced fishing technology, including fishfinder, a live bait well, and Penn tackle. There’s room on board for up to four passengers.

While fishing with Capt. JL you can catch some of the Florida’s most popular species, from Snapper and Tarpon to big game fish offshore. With great weather year round, there is always something biting off the coast of Miami!

In winter months, you are likely to stay inshore where the waters are calm and shallow. There you can target Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snook, Barracuda, and much more. These trips are perfect for families with small children and beginners who are still developing their sea legs.

When the season allows, you can target big game fish just three miles from shore. An offshore adventure might have you trolling for Wahoo and Sailfish, drift fishing for Mahi Mahi, or fishing the wrecks for Amberjack and Cobia.

For even more possibilities you can join Capt. JL on a sightseeing tour, featuring views of celebrity homes and a stop at the sandbar where you can swim and relax. This trip is great for photo ops and a memorable day with family or friends.

Blue Moon Fishing Charters include a fishing license, tackle, and bait. Trips are generally recommended for children age seven and above. Younger children must wear life vests at all times and should be supervised closely by their parents.

Bring your family aboard today for great fishing and a trip to remember!

About the Captain

JL Denis
Miami Beach, Florida, United States
Member since June 2015
With 30 years experience as a boat technician and as an offshore sailor, I decided to have more fun with boats and live my passion - fishing! We fish the inland and offshore from Miami to Ft Lauderdale in search of Sharks, Rays, Snappers and Tarpons. We also go trolling for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo, as well as drifting offshore on weed lines and bottom fishing on wrecks and structures for Cobias, Amberjacks and many more species, depending on time of the year and weather. I love what I do and love teaching kids to preserve our nature. I value my customers and make many friends among them.

Good trip but didn’t get the fish we wanted, they were there but not feeding. Captain Jean and Jose were great company and upset I didn’t catch too much. I would recommend.

We had A great half day withCapt Jean Denis. Fishing outside the cost of Miami. The captain had much knowledge about fishing in the area and worked with a safety-first priciple, We were fortunate enough, and got to go deepsea fishing. Absolutely top guy and both me and my girlfriend was very happy in the company of captain. We would recommend him strongly and when we’re going to go fishing in Miami again it will be with him :-)
