trip description for Miami Beach Sportfishing Trip in Miami Beach

Sportfishing here in Miami Beach is a unique experience unlike any other. Captain Ethan and his crew know the area and know how to make your trip enjoyable and memorable. His sportfishing charters offer plenty of opportunities to catch and keep your fish, if you so desire! Ethan and his crew can even clean your catch and suggest nearby restaurants that will cook it up for you. Charters launch from the Miami Beach Marina and traverse the area between Ft. Lauderdale and Key Largo. However, if the fishing report states a much wider range, Captain Ethan will go as far as 30 miles offshore. His goal is to give you the best sportfishing experience possible—each and every trip. Some of the fish regularly caught on these trips include Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Kingfish, Tuna, Sharks, Blackfin Tuna, and Wahoo. However, an unexpected blue or white Marlin may show its face in the spread, when an experienced angler knows you never know what to expect. While a few fish are catch and release only, you can keep much of what you catch—depending on size. Our crew will keep you up to date with the current information. A day of sport fishing is something you will never forget! All equipment is provided, but you are welcome to use your own if you prefer. Please bring your own snacks and drinks for the trip as well as a tip for the deckhands! Read More

Head offshore with Captain Raul for an epic half or full day adventure off Miami Beach. The beauty of the Miami beach fishery is its crazy close proximity to the deep water. While most fishing destinations require a full day aboard the boat in order to get far enough offshore, in Miami, you can easily hook into some tasty and large sportfish on a half-day adventure. Going out for a full day, however, gives you enough time to reach really deep fishing spots and go after the biggest, fastest fish out there. Some of your targets can be Swordfish, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and more. Your fishing equipment is fully covered by the captain, so all you need to bring are you favorite snacks and drinks, and Captain Raul will take care of the rest! Read More

    Jedidiah was unavailable to take us out fishing, but his friend Matt was able fill in. Matt was excellent company, very knowledgeable about fishing, and the various species within these waters. We had a wonderful time and if Matt is a representation of the people Jedidiah keeps for company, then I have no doubt he would be as equally wonderful to go fishing with, 10/10.

    Great fishing/hunting trip Justin was a great and knowledgeable guide. He is very positive and always has a pep in his step. Me and my girlfriend came down from Alabama and stayed in Everglades city. We met Justin took us less than an hour. We did the cast and blast combo we fished first and then hunted second had a blast on both parts. Got over a half a dozen nice iguanas and at least 5 different species of fish one being peacock bass(my favorite). I’m very thankful to Justin for guiding us and I would definitely recommend booking him. Me and my girlfriend will be back.

    Robert S. with Dennis C. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Taylor was amazing! He knew exactly what he was doing; the spots to go to, which bait to use to catch certain fish, and how to set up each individual line. He also knew when each line would be hooked or something was biting, even when we couldn’t see it. We ended up with one big catch that broke the line as we spent what felt like hours fighting it. Even though we didn’t end up feeling anything in, it was still a great experience out on the water, talking about a range of topics with Taylor. We would definitely come back and book with Taylor and Wicked Cuda again!

    Breyhauna J. with Taylor S. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    I would 100% recommend a trip with Jedidiah. No doubt he knows the waters and how to get on the fish, but was also very good with our two younger anglers who had a memorable, successful and exciting experience. King Mackerel were biting and they were just a couple minutes off shore. Thanks Jedidiah and hope to book another one with you in the future!

    Martin M. with Jedidiah P. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida

    Had a great time. Jake got us on the fish and moved spots when things slowed down. All 4 of us caught multiple fish. We were very happy and will definitely book it again next year.
