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!

What anglers said about Drift Fishing in Miami

Give yourself longer than half a day. There are many ways to fish (trolling, drifting, anchoring up, flat lining) not all fish are biting at the same time. So you want time to try out everything and catch as many fish as possible. If you can only do a half day, you may not be fully satisfied.

Do not try and plan in advance, make charter reservations when you get to Miami, weather is very hit or miss.

It’s a great destination for fishing. There’s a lot of variety to catch and you don’t need to travel far from shore. There’s less time traveling and more time fishing.

We had booked a 4-Hour trip that worked out good for people that haven't really fished before. The people that love fishing should try the 6-hour
