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.

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 traveled to Miami for a bachelor party. The groom wanted to off shore fish so we booked a full day charter with Billin Office. From the moment we stepped foot on the boat the fun began Capt Nelson was Awsome to have around extremely knowledgeable and even though our entire group fishes religiously he gave lots of helpful tips and tricks! Jordan the deck hand was an absolute Awsome first mate he didn’t miss a beat and worked his absolute ass off keeping lines in the water!

We are first time for ocean fishing. Everyone has some extend sea sickness. The reeling in a fish is quite a work, much harder than we thought. After all, we had a great time and a fun time with 6 fishes in the end, one large amberjack, one king fish and four Mahi Mahi. Captain Nelson and Jordan are great. Thanks guys.

Charles showed out again! As soon as we showed up the bite was on! Super awesome day of catching one peacock after another! Doubles and triple ups all day! Couldn’t ask for a better day! And to top it all of we got to watch a sunset in the glades! Charles is a top notch captain! Couldn’t ask for a better two days on the water.

Captain Charles so very knowledgeable and knew where the fish were. We even saw some manatees and a couple iguanas along the way. We caught snook and snapper. It was a beautiful day on the water.

We had a great time with Captain Jason and Jose. Jason was very responsive prior to the trip. He made it easy to decide what to go fishing for. Jason knew secret spots for quick snapper fishing. We then had some luck and caught our first ever Sailfish! Whole trip was a breeze and made memories for a lifetime. Would recommend to anyone who loves a day on the water!

You never know what to expect with a Capitan when booking with a fishing charter. I will say, every one of my expectations were surpassed on this trip. Charles worked and put us on fish all day, his extensive knowledge of the area and the species showed. Played great music, ensured we were comfortable. We were able to see the Everglades, gators, and numerous birds. It was one of the best days on the water I could have ever asked for. I will be back to revisit this trip.
