Miami Fishing

With its sportfishing potential often overshadowed by a myriad of other famous attractions and activites, Miami is one of those sublime fisheries you probably didn't know you've been missing in your angling portfolio. Nevertheless, the moment everyone's favorite migratory pelagics make these waters their own early in the spring, Miami's deep sea fishing prospects can easily rival any of the hottest Caribbean big game destinations. Then, come autumn, all an angler needs to do is slightly adjust his tackle, as the city transitions into one of the best reef and bottom fishing destinations in all of Florida. Oh, and there's also some spectacular fly fishing to be done during the spring and summer months. You know, if you're into that sort of thing.
