Drift Fishing in Miami

A lively metropolis, a favorite among various types of tourists, and one of the most culturally diverse cities in the US – yes, we're talking about Miami. For nature lovers visiting the area, there's no better activity in the city than fishing its bountiful waters. And the drift fishing Miami has to offer is one of the most fun and economical ways to explore the bite. 
 

What to Expect

 
If you book a trip with a Miami party fishing boat, you're in for a treat. You'll get to meet a lot of new, interesting people aboard these large vessels while drifting over numerous reefs. These drift boats can take you to the waters ranging from 40 to over 350 feet deep just half a mile from shore. Fall is the best season for reef fishing, and you can expect to land some epic Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and others. Early spring is all about drift fishing for Kingfish, Bonito, Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and even Swordfish and Sailfish. Night drift fishing trips for Swordfish are especially popular. 
 

How to Prepare

 
Licensed Miami fishing charters come inclusive with fishing licenses, top-notch fishing gear, and fish filleting (make sure to tip the crew for their efforts). It's advised that you bring your snacks and drinks, sunglasses, sunscreen, and layered clothing if you're going on a longer trip. And don't forget a camera to capture all those fun moments!
 
Drift fishing in Miami is suitable for anglers of all ages and skill levels. Whether you're a first-time angler or a veteran of the seas, Miami fishing guides will work hard for you to go home with filled coolers and a smile on your face!

The only problem about fishing around Miami in August is a storm can kick up really fast and roll through just as fast as it developed, but it will still put a kink in your plan.

Captain Bryan was very friendly and helpful. While the fishing was slow, mostly due to the weather, he did what he could to help us land some fish. Although we didn't catch any "keepers", we did catch some good fighters. Would definitely book again.

Bring sunscreen or long thin clothes because it is hot and a lot of sun. If you are not use to the sun you are going to get burnt.

Book with a company whose crew is knowledgeable with the area, time is limited on tours and the best experience comes from local captains who know their spots, like Let it Fly Bowfishing!

Just get out there. Tell the captain what you’re looking to do and they’ll point you in the right direction.

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.
