Welcoming beginners and seasoned anglers alike, Miami fishing charters offer visitors of all skill levels a shot at some amazing fish. Big game monsters and crafty inshore tricksters all provide an exciting challenge and will leave you thrilled. Get on the enchanted waters of the “Magic City” and let one of the experienced local captains show you the way.

Inshore, Redfish, and Seatrout reign as favorite targets for those new to the sport. Pros, however, can take on Snook, Tarpon, Bonefish, and Permit. Head out for longer, and you’ll find Grouper, Amberjack, Snapper, and even Tilefish. Offshore, the Gulf Stream funnels big game monsters right past the city, allowing lucky anglers to hook into Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna.

Inshore charters that explore calm, sheltered waters are perfect for families and beginners, and rich spots close to shore mean that even half day trips can produce lots of fish. Nearshore reef fishing is all about loading up on delicious fish, and a few extra hours are sure to be worth it. Lastly, while the world-class fishing grounds of “Sailfish Alley” are close, you should opt for a full day to get the most out of your trip.

In Miami, you’ll find charter boats anywhere you turn. Inshore, the city's canals and lagoons are sure to give you a good selection of captains, with Blue Lagoon being a great starting spot. On the bay coast, charters are docked anywhere from its northern edge, all the way to the marinas surrounding Miami City Hall in the south.

Rules & Regulations

Charters in Miami generally include everything you need. Licenses are covered if you are fishing from a for-hire vessel – whether it’s a private charter or a party boat. Atlantic Coast seasons and bag limits differ from the rest of the state so be sure to get informed ahead of time.

January

Inshore, January sees very clear waters in Miami's Biscayne Bay. This makes for excellent sight fishing for species such as big Seatrout, Tarpon, and Bonefish. Nearshore, conditions can be windy. Sailfish are biting well.

February

February is the beginning of high Bonefish season in Miami, which continues through June. Offshore, the Sailfish bite continues. Enter Miami's famous Sailfish Challenge Tournament and test your skills!

March

Large schools of Bonefish and Tarpon are caught in the bay. Head just a couple of miles offshore, and you will be in for a treat - everything is biting. Go for Kingfish, Tuna, and Mahi Mahi.

April

Some Tarpon start to leave the Bay to start their northwards migration, but they will still be caught in large numbers through June. Miami wreck fishing gets better and better and Mahi are caught offshore.

May

As the weather transitions towards summer, everyone wants to be on the water. Look out for the famous Miami Sportfish Tournament early in the month and the Bob Lewis Kids Fishing Classic on Memorial Day Weekend.

June

Tarpon begin to be replaced by large schools of Permit in Biscayne Bay, making for some excellent shallow water fishing. Offshore, head to the reefs for Kingfish, Bonito, and Blackfin Tuna.

July

Permit continue to hold in the bay, although the larger Tarpon have moved on. Offshore, there is excellent fishing over the reefs and wrecks for Snapper and Grouper, with Kingfish and Bonito biting well.

August

Surface water temperatures are very hot, so the best fishing is early in the morning and later in the evening. Head offshore to deep drop for a real sea monster!

September

Bonefish are back on top form, as water temperatures are perfect for them. Troll slowly over the reefs for Kingfish and bottom fish for Snapper. Look for Sailfish as the weather cools towards the end of the month.

October

Fall arrives with easterly winds blowing. This brings Mahi Mahi closer to the shore. Sailfish appear on the trail of schools of mullet that congregate over nearshore reefs.

November

Fishing continues to be very good, with the Sailfish bite picking up in earnest near shore. Blackfin Tuna and Wahoo can also be caught over the reefs, while inshore action remains as good as ever.

December

Tarpon begin to reappear in Biscayne Bay as they return from their migration in the north. Temperatures remain in the high 70s, making fishing very pleasant. Sailfish and Wahoo are biting well offshore.

I was given advice from friends that fishing above the keys would not be that ideal. However, we had a great time and expect to catch more fish in the area soon.

Focus on the guide, not the boat. You don't need a 30ft boat to run around in the Miami bays and get to the good fishing!

Either find a decent charter, have some friends who know the area, rent a boat to get to the spots where others are, or go to a jetty or pier. Can't go wrong with jetty or pier fishing and putting some shrimp/crab/ squid on a setup with a hook and a weight like a Carolina rig. Plenty of exotics in the canals as well that will bite even in December. Just watch for gators and snakes!

Takes no time at all to get to DEEP sea fishing...10 miles and you're at 1,000+ feet. Possibilities are endless but you better be with the right crew and boat or you're gonna have a disappointing day.

It's going to cost more than they tell you when you book the trip. If you don't have your own rods It was only an extra $13 But if we didn't have the extra on us it would have been a problem. We paid a $33 deposit and we expected the rest would cost us 77 but that's not what happened when we got there

We booked a half day trip. Captain knew the hot spots and was super patient throughout the entire trip. The phrase Fish On!…was used often as we had multiple fish on frequently. We caught snappers, small tuna, hooked a large sailfish, and even fought a bull shark. Incredible trip and captain was awesome and friendly

Captain and mate did absolutely everything perfect. They were on time and ready to go ahead of our scheduled time. I feel they went above and beyond to make sure I was able to have an amazing time with my parents and inlaws. We hooked up on plenty of fish and even caught a barracuda and wahoo. Would recommend their operation anytime without any hesitation. This crew will work hard to help you make some amazing memories.

Highly recommend the 6-hr trip. He is very friendly and very knowledgeable. He will help you catch all the fish you want and then when you are done he will clean and fillet the fish for you. If you want, he will take you to the restaurant nearby and they will cook it for you. Overall a great experience. Thanks Jorge!

We took a full day trip to head out far and find some Dolphin fish. We ended up catching a beauty of a dolphin and headed back to shallower water (still 400-500ft) and caught some snapper and yellowtail. Overall a great experience! Everyone had a great time!

Such a great experience working with Capt Rick! Very professional in all interactions and prepared for every situation. I chose to get PADI dive certified with Capt Rick before the actual dive and he was very accommodating and thorough. I felt like he took care of me like I was his own family. He knows what he's doing and the results speak for themselves. Great day on the water and brought home dinner for days! Would happily go out with Capt Rick again in a heartbeat.
