Miami Beach Fishing Charters

With half of a million people and incredible fishing just a short distance away, Miami Beach is sure to be a great trip. Fishing here is as fast paced as the city itself. Located on Florida's southeast coast it’s only a couple hour boat ride to the Bahamas. Miami Beach is surrounded by bays and flats making it truly an angler's paradise. The consistent warm weather means something is always in season, no matter where you're fishing, and once you get off the water, there is always something to do. Whether you're a high-octane angler, or just taking the family out for a relaxing day on the bay, Miami Beach fishing charters have it all.

Miami Beach Inshore Fishing

Just minutes away from high-rise condos and loud city blocks is one of the largest and most biodiverse open water inshore fisheries on Florida's Atlantic coast. Biscayne Bay stretches from North Miami Beach all the way down to Elliot Key close to the Southern Glades. It is impossible to fish all of this water in a year, much less a single day. Luckily, our Miami Beach fishing charters know all the best spots. Throughout Biscayne Bay there are numerous islands, flats, cuts, canals, and channels. Here is where you'll find monster Snook, Permit, Bonefish, Redfish, and more.

If you can stand the heat of summer, you'll have a chance at catching Miami's true A-lister: the Tarpon. These Silver Kings hang out in channels, flats, and around bridge pilings as they fill up on schooling Menhaden and other baitfish snacks. Miami Beach inshore fishing isn't all about the saltwater, however. The city's freshwater canals are full of massive Peacock and Largemouth Bass, which put up incredible fights for landlocked species.

Miami Beach Deep Sea and Offshore Fishing Charters

The fun doesn't stop in town. Just a short boat ride from Miami Beach and you can be fishing hundreds of reefs, wrecks, and shallow structure that are all teeming with life. Reef & wreck trips are typically 4-6 hours long, and are excellent for taking the family out. When fishing shallow structure, there is no telling what you will catch. Grouper and Snapper species are to be expected, as well as any number of tropical fish species like Triggerfish and Jacks.

For the longer trips, you will not find closer access to the Gulf Stream than in Miami Beach. Proximity to this ocean-wide current means species that normally take extended day trips to target can be caught on half-day to 3/4 day trips. Species like Sailfish, Wahoo, Tuna, and Kingfish are all caught on these trips. The king of offshore fishing in Miami Beach, however, is the Mahi-Mahi. Possibly the most recognizable fish in the world, these vibrant colored predators invade Miami's offshore waters in the heat of summer. There are few things more exciting that finding a floating patch of seaweed and drawing out a bull Mahi-Mahi from under it.

Things to do in Miami Beach

It goes without saying that no matter what your idea of entertainment is, Miami has it. Art museums, professional sports, local cuisine, and unmatched nightlife are sure to keep you busy after you get off the water. Head to Miami Beach for mile-wide white sand beaches, awesome restaurants and nightclubs. Check out the Wynwood Walls to see world-renowned and local artists' work on display. Go shopping at the Bayside Marketplace, or take the family out to the Miami Seaquarium.
