Fly Fishing in Miami

If you’re a fly rodder looking for your next thrill, Miami fly fishing will blow your mind! There are few better places in the country to test your strength and angling skills to the max. Ocean flats, national parks, and channels in and around Miami are teeming with popular fish species that are practically waiting for your fly.
 

What to Expect

Fly fishing in the area started in Biscayne Bay, where you can find all the most prized fish in one place – namely Bonefish, Permit, and Tarpon. This doesn’t mean that you’re limited to these three species, however. These waters are also abundant with Snook, Spanish Mackerel, Spotted Seatrout, and many more.
 

What to Catch

Bonefish is one of the most elusive species you can target on the pristine flats, which is what makes it so attractive to anglers. These fish aren’t called “The ghost of the flats” for nothing. The hardest part of hunting Bonefish is finding them without spooking them. After that, you’re going to need all your skill and stealth to present your fly and have the fish gulp it down. And this is where the fun starts.
 
Permit is another master of camouflage that will put up a fight. You have to strike the delicate balance between sneaking up to your prey, choosing the right fly, and presenting it in an unimposing way. Once you’ve got a Permit on the hook, get ready to fight. Every step of this journey is worth it though, because the sense of accomplishment is something you’ll talk about for years to come. You’ll find the best bite anytime from December to May.
 
If you want to catch a Tarpon (Silver King) on a fly and “Bow to the King," aka catching a Tarpon (Silver King) on a fly is a big deal in Miami and beyond! They’re gorgeous, they’re acrobatic, they fight with everything they’ve got – what’s not to love? These guys can weigh anywhere from 50–200 pounds. Just imagine head shakes from a lunker like that at the end of your line! If you want to get in on the hottest bite, May and June are your best bet.
 
Aside from the Big Three, Snook and Jack Crevalle are very fun to catch while fly fishing. If you’d like to explore freshwater opportunities, look for Peacock Bass in numerous canals around Miami.
 

How to Catch ‘Em

There’s a significant number of fishing charters in Miami, as well as in the Everglades, Biscayne Bay, and Biscayne National Park. Local guides specialize in taking fly fishermen to where the fish are. They’ll also provide you with all the gear you need, as well as expert advice on which setup to use.
 
In general, Tarpon will require 10–12 wt rods with strong backing, and you can battle Bonefish with an 8 wt and Permit on 10 wt rod. When it comes to fly patterns, you’ll use a wide range, depending on what you’d like to target. Crab and bonefish patterns are very popular and productive, as well as an array of Tarpon setups.
 
Choose a charter that best suits your preferences, pack drinks, food, and plenty of sunscreen – and you’re ready to break your personal record on the prolific Miami waters!

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.

Yes, but know your personal limitations. Choppy water is rough if you suffer from motion sickness. Prepare properly and enjoy.

Focus on the guide, not the boat. You don't need a 30ft boat to run around in the Miami bays and get to the good fishing!

Great time for Tarpon due to the shrimp hatch. Beat the heat. Beautiful weather. Fish at night when there isn't any boat traffic.

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!

Takes no time at all to get to DEEP sea fishing...10 miles and you're at 1,000+ feet. Possibilities are endless but you better be with the right crew and boat or you're gonna have a disappointing day.

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

Do your homework and check out your options for the experience you are looking for. Remember there are no guarantees that you will catch fish but the likelihood of doing so is high. As well prior to booking ensure there ae no hidden extra fees.
