Spring Fishing in Miami
March 05, 2016 Key Biscayne 7 photos
Like I have been saying in my last few reports, spring is upon us and the fishing has been steady. When the winds allow it we are still able to get to the snapper and they have been biting good. The mangrove snapper bite has been the best bite with fish being caught anywhere from 2 to 8lbs. The mutton snapper bite is starting to pick up as well and we are starting to catch more keepers then shorts. The past few months we have caught over 100 hundred short mutton snappers, which is a good sign that the population is healthy. We have also been catching some nice sized grouoper but unfortunately we can't keep them until May 1. The tarpon and snook bites is also getting better and better as we get closer to summer. At night we are still catching tarpon anywhere from 30 to 100lbs, the best part about tarpon fishing is you never know what you have till it jumps out of the water and you get to see exactly how big the fish really is. We are also catching some snook at night as well. Most have been just under slot around 27 1/2 inches but we are also catching some keepers mixed in as well. Take advantage of the good weather and fishing and BOOK YOUR TRIP TODAY!!!!!

Great time to be fishing in Miami
November 29, 2016
This time of the year the fishing and weather are at there best and lately it has not disappointed. The weather has been almost perfect for this time of the year and we are not even breaking a sweat while we are out on the water. The best bite has been during the day in Biscayne Bay. The bait is still around and plentiful and we are having no problem finding it and then filling the livewell with more then we need. Lately the snappers have been the stars of the show and have not disappointed. We have been catching some really nice Mangrove snapper up to 5lbs and on light tackle they are a blast. We have also been catching out fair share of Mutton snappers but most have been just a little to small to keep but we have caught some big ones as well. If you are looking for non stop action from some toothy critters the Barracudas are making there move into the bay and we have had some exciting action from them. In my opinion the Barracuda is the most understated game fish that we have, they are aggressive, pull drag, have teeth, and are a blast to catch. In my opinion you couldn't ask for anything more from a fish. The Yellowjacks have also been around lately and when you can get them fired up they are like a pack of piranhas eating everything that swims and it is a lot of fun to watch them chase down and eat your bait off the surface of the water. If Tarpon is something you are looking to target then the wait is almost over. Any time now the shrimp should start running at night and the Tarpon will not be far behind. It is primarily a night time bite this time of the year and you get to see the glitz and glam of Miami from the water at night while doing battle with the mighty silver king. What else could you ask for. The fishing is good so don't miss out and BOOK YOUR TRIP TODAY!!!!
Great time to fish Miami
November 11, 2016
Like I have said in my previous posts, this is my favorite time of the year to fish and so far it has not disappointed. The bait has finally settled into its usual routine and we are finding it with ease just about every time we go out. It's so thick that with one throw of the 12ft cast net we are catching more bait then we could ever want. The hot bite continues to come from the snapper, grouper, jacks, and barracudas. On our past trips we have been catching some good sized mutton snapper and mangrove snapper which are one of the best eating in my opinion. When we can get them out of the structure with the light tackle that we are using we have landed some nice groupers and lost some nice groupers, but that's fishing. At night the snook are still hanging around in good numbers and the tarpon are making there second appearance for the year and when the tide is right they are eating everything in sight. Miami is a great place to be this time of the year so if you have t experienced it before get down here and book a trip so you don't miss out on the action. Don't wait BOOK YOUR TRIP TODAY!!!!!
October fishing in Miami
October 14, 2016
Like I mentioned in my last report, October is one of the best months out of the year to be fishing and so far it has not disappointed. The mullet run is in full swing now and the fishing couldn't be better. During the day we are catching Mutton snapper from 5-15 lbs, Mangrove snapper up to 20 inches, Yellow jacks up to 12lbs, and some big hungry Barracudas. All my fishing is done on light tackle, 15lb braided line with 20-30lb fluorocarbon leader, which makes for a great fight with these fish. If you like constant rod bending action and drag screaming fun this is the trip for you. If Snook is what you are after they are biting eat good at night around the inlets and bridges around Miami Beach, and there are some big ones lurking around right now. Don't miss out on the fun and BOOK YOUR TRIP TODAY!!!!! Capt. Alex Geneteau
