Miami deep sea fishing charters have the luxury of getting some super big game fish only 15 minutes from the dock. You can land an enviable Billfish here and still get to strike a pose with the Freedom Tower behind you. Yes, it’s that awesome.

What species to target and where

Once you head out of South Beach or Haulover Park, the Gulf Stream could be as close as only some 1.5 miles away. It takes a short boat ride, often times under 20 minutes, to get to some impressive fisheries. This means that even on a half day trip you’d have nearly three hours of solid fishing, with the possibility to catch Sailfish, Shark, Swordfish, Marlin, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and King Mackerel. Booking a full day trip is a great option if you want to get away from the crowd and explore some of the even better fishing spots. If you want to go after bottom fish, there are many wrecks and reefs with some deep water to target Tilefish, Grouper, Snapper or nearby pelagics including Cobia, Mackerel, Jacks and Barracuda.

How to get the fish

The variety of species that local charters target is matched only by the number of techniques you can learn, perfect, and try here. The local captains will be glad to help you out with the basics and much more. Here you can go on a trip with some of the best fishermen in the world to help even veteran anglers land their dream catch. Find someone willing to customize the trip so that you can also get a hands-on experience. You can go trolling or bottom fishing around the reefs. When going for Billfish and other heavy game fish, you will either be using live bait and pair it with heavy tackle. Utilize long rods for the bottom fish, or try spearfishing and kite fishing.

Captain Orly helped us achieve our goals. We wanted to catch some fish to eat, catch some big ones, and learn more about deep sea fishing in south Florida all at a fair price! Mission accomplished!!! Only bad thing is we had to put grouper back as it was out of season.
