According to customer reviews, Salty Habitz Fishing, Captain Martin Carranza, and Sea Hawk Fishing Charters are some of the most popular fishing charters in Biscayne Bay. Full list of top fishing charters in Biscayne Bay.

Captain Martin Carranza and Sea Hawk Fishing Charters received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Biscayne Bay.

The most popular fish species you can target are Dolphin (Mahi Mahi), Sailfish, and King Mackerel (Kingfish). Top fishing techniques include light tackle, spinning, and bottom fishing. Inshore fishing, offshore fishing, and reef fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Not many bodies of water can boast world-class fishing just a stone’s throw from one of the greatest cities on the planet. But fishing in Biscayne Bay offers just that. Escape the hustle and bustle of downtown Miami and experience what dreams are made of. Cast your line in these productive waters against the city’s backdrop, and you could land yourself a trophy fish.
 
Grassy flats, inlets, reefs, and much more characterize Biscayne Bay’s fishing grounds, and that means there’s something for everyone. Beginners can target Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, Ladyfish, and Mangrove Snapper. Meanwhile, the more experienced can go after some of Florida’s most sought-after inshore fish. Snook, Permit, Bonefish, Jack Crevalle, Redfish, and even Tarpon can be found here, so get ready to really test your skills and strength!
 
With so much fishing on offer, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of trips that cater to all kinds of angler. You can tailor your trip to sight casting, fly fishing, or trolling, and you’re sure to catch what you want. Families can take advantage of trips as short as a couple of hours, while pros can spend a full day or longer on the water, fine-tuning their angling skills. 
 
Wherever you are around the bay, you’ll have no trouble in finding a charter to take you out. From south Miami down to the Everglades, and out to Key Biscayne, fishing is a way of life here. There’s always a captain waiting to show you what fishing here is all about. 
 

Rules & Regulations

When fishing with a charter in Biscayne Bay, your license is covered by your captain. Other rules you should be aware of are that Tarpon fishing is strictly catch and release, while many other species have closed seasons. Fishing with an experienced guide will make sure you’re up to date with all these regulations.

January

At the very beginning of the year, you can go out to fish for Snapper, Jacks, Ladyfish, and Barracuda. The Tarpon bite is solid, so dress for the weather and head out.

February

Enjoy fair weather and good angling action in February. It’s not too warm in the bay, and that means that you can easily catch anything from Tarpon and Jack Crevalle to Barracuda and Snapper.

March

Spring is just around the corner and the fish can feel it, that’s why they come out to play. Permit and Tarpon fishing is excellent, while Snapper and Barracuda are biting left and right around the reefs.

April

Grab your rod and go fishing, because April is the month to do it! Days are warm, but not too hot, and just about any species you can think of is active this month – Snook, Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon, to name a few.

May

Fish, fish everywhere! Wherever you cast your line in May, you’ll hear your reel screaming soon enough. Big Tarpon, colorful Snapper, hard-fighting Snook, Bonefish, Permit – they’re all here for the taking.

June
The Snook season is over, but there’s still plenty of fish in the bay. Whether it’s Sharks, Grouper, Snapper, or Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon, you can land it in June, so come and warm up for summer!
July

It’s hot on the water, and a great way to get around it is to get out early in the morning. There’s plenty of Snapper around, along with Barracuda, Cobia, Tarpon, and Bonefish – so there's something for everyone. 

August

Summer isn’t going anywhere, and neither are the fish. This is a great month to bring home a mixed bag. Depending on where you go, anything from Redfish and Spotted Seatrout to Tarpon and Bonefish is game.

September

Finally, the heat is giving way to crisp fall mornings and there’s nothing like a bit of fishing to start your day. In September, think Snook, Permit, Jack Crevalle, Tarpon, and Bonefish, and you're in for a treat!

October

This is the best month to fish for Bonefish, Barracuda, Cobia, and Jack Crevalle, though other species are present as well. You can also find some big Tarpon and Snook out there, so go after 'em all!

November

Water temperatures are dropping and, while the fish might be a bit lazy, they still won’t be able to resist a good setup. You can target Bonefish, Snook, and Jacks, and let’s not forget about Snapper and Barracuda.

December

Snapper is the star of the show in the last few weeks of the year, so Mangrove, Yellowtail, Mutton, and many more are all on the menu. The bonefishing action is more than solid, so see out the year in style.

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!

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

Had a great time with Captain Andy and his first mate Justin. From beginning to end these two were amazing. It was my first time out and made me feel as if I did this for a living. They are both down to earth individuals, easy going which makes the trip even better. Boat is clean, communication was great. We caught 4 mahi and 1 tuna. Definitely recommend!

We did a 3/4 day trip with Lucky Hook Charters. Captain Jorge showed us a really great time. He was patient with us, very personable, and was extremely knowledgeable on the area we were fishing. We were able to catch some Snowy Grouper which he filleted perfectly at the end of our trip. Would definitely book again!

Captain made the absolute most out of our half day. Pulled away from the marina as soon as our feet hit the deck. Started the day trolling, then caught reef fish, and drifted a wreck where we finally caught the big one we were after! Definitely recommend Capt Jimmy to anyone looking for a local fishing experience. Will be back for more if we are ever in the south Florida area.

Captain Sig and his son Raymond are awesome! We told him that we wanted to fish for Mahi-mahi, and they delivered. First day we caught 4, second day we caught 18, a barracuda, a kingfish, and a tuna! What a great day of fishing! Always remember, it's called fishing not catching. If there is a way to catch them, Sig knows how to do it. I highly recommend Captain Sig and Hot Shot Charters!

Signed up for a half day trip not knowing what to expect, day of trip wouldn't you know it decided to release a monsoon on us, captain called an audible and took us to the everglades instead (not knowing this was a bucket list of mine). The day couldn't have gone better. Very personal 1 on 1 guide experience. The captain was more than accommodating and was great with my 5 year old. This felt like a fishing trip with a good friend I've known for years. I will definitely be coming back.
