trip description for Night Monster Fishing Trip-Cubera/Goliath Grouper/Shark in Miami

This trip is fishing for monsters. The targeted species are Cubera Snapper, Goliath Grouper and Sharks. This is the ultimate big game trip next to Sword fishing which I offer as a day trip. This trip is about focussing on catching huge fish hanging around ship wrecks. The bait consists of whole fish with the average bait weighing around 5 pounds. The gear used are big game set ups, butt rods, 50 or 80 Penn International 2 speeds spooled with 100 lb braided line, followed by 600 lb test leader to 400 lb wire leader, ending with two giant 18/0 hooks. The trip is aboard, Posiedon, my new 36’ Yellowfin center console. This boat is the ultimate in offshore, big game boats. Powered with triple 275 hp Mercury Verados, it is very fast and handles like a Lamborgini. Yellowfin is hands down the sexiest center console ever made and they haven’t changed the hull design in over a decade. The sexy hull design pushes water away from the boat making it very dry as water rarely ever comes over the rail. The hull design also provides a stable base for handling the roughest Seas. The tricked out lighting includes 6 blue underwater lights making it epic for night fishing. The brand new computer systems consists of 2 completely independent systems. The first is a 12” Garmin chart plotter with radar, GPS and a fish finder that will tell you what type of fish it is at 2000’ deep! The second system is a 12” Raymarine chart plotter with 4’ open array radar, GPS, adaptive autopilot and fish finder with side scan sonar. The Fusion BT sound system will keep the tunes and good times going. There is a head on the boat for girls and emergencies. Captain BrYan has thousands of marked fishing spots on the computers and is offshore at night about 3-5 times a week. His extensive knowledge of the Ocean, Haulover Inlet and the Intercostal Water Ways will keep you safe in any situation. The Miami Beach skyline is epic at night from a boat. There aren’t too many places in the World where you can deep Sea fish a couple miles from shore and see such a beautiful city scene. Fishing for monsters, offshore, at night in the open Ocean while enjoying the beautiful view of Miami is something all fisher persons must experience. Captain BrYan has everything you need, just bring your food and drinks, beer and glass bottles are perfectly fine too! There will be bottled waters in a cooler with ice for you on the boat. Usually Sharks are catch and release with the average fish weighing over 300 lbs. If you want to harvest a Shark that is legal, then please let Captain BrYan know prior to the day of the trip. Shark cleaning fees start at $50 and go up depending on size. Goliath Grouper is catch and release only, unless you have won a tag from FWC in the annual drawing. If you have one of these tags, please let Captain BrYan know when you book the trip. Cubera Snapper are delicious and can be harvested. Complimentary cleaning for Cuberas under 20lbs, fish over 20 lbs are $25 each to be cleaned. Vacuum packing service is provided for an additional fee to be determined depending on size of catch. This trip is for everyone, especially children and beginners! Read More

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

    What a nice experience the captain was the best

    Alex B. with Bryan M. of Miami, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Hi, the overall trip was good, captain explained a lot. We were expecting another person on board to help with baiting, but the captain did it all. He greeted us at his home went to the boat and took off. The bathroom on the boat definitely needs a deep cleaning. I think the boat was too small boat for as many people we had on board to be fishing. We were always in his way or another person's way it seemed. Wish we could have caught something other than fish bait.

    Hello 3/19/2023 Captian Bryan tried very hard to get fish for us but the lines kept getting severed , also it looks like he was missing a mate today so he had to drive the boat , fix new rigs etc. The scenery was great but we really wanted to catch some fish.

    Captain Bryan and his deckhand James, and Kila were AMAZING!!! I was so impressed! The trip was so great, I didn’t want it to end. Honestly, I can’t imagine going on another fishing trip without him. He is super knowledgeable, funny, and personable! He told us the name of each fish we caught, if we had to throw it back due to size, or due to not being in season. I learned so much! This trip was for my fiancé’s birthday and he had such a great time with our nieces and nephews. I’ve never went fishing my entire life and I caught the first fish! Thank you Captain Bryan and we look forward to being on the water with you again!
