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

What is black grouper fishing in Miami Beach all about?

Black grouper, known for their impressive size and delicious flesh, are a prized catch among anglers in Miami Beach. These large predatory fish inhabit the reefs, wrecks, and rocky bottoms scattered throughout the offshore waters of Miami Beach. With their distinct coloration and powerful presence, black grouper are both visually striking and highly sought-after for both recreational and commercial fishing.

One effective method for targeting black grouper in Miami Beach is bottom fishing with live bait near the structures where they congregate. Anglers often use live baits such as pinfish, grunts, or blue runners, as well as cut bait such as squid or mullet, to entice black grouper into striking. Fishing near reefs, wrecks, or rocky outcrops increases the likelihood of encountering these prized fish, as they often use such areas as hunting grounds to prey on passing baitfish and crustaceans.

Black grouper are known for their cautious feeding habits and can be selective in their prey choices, making them a challenging yet rewarding target for anglers. Another popular technique for black grouper fishing in Miami Beach is vertical jigging with heavy metal jigs or large soft plastics. Anglers drop the jig down to the desired depth and jig it up and down to mimic the movement of injured baitfish. This method can be highly effective in enticing black grouper to strike, particularly when fishing over rocky bottoms or areas with strong currents. With their impressive size and challenging fight, landing a trophy-sized black grouper in the waters off Miami Beach promises an exhilarating fishing adventure for anglers of all skill levels.

What are the most popular months to fish for black grouper fishing in Miami Beach?

Black grouper fishing seasons in Miami Beach are influenced by various factors including water temperature, spawning patterns, and regulatory measures. Generally, the prime seasons for targeting black grouper fall during the spring and summer months. As the water temperatures rise during this period, black grouper become more active and migrate closer to the coast, providing anglers with excellent opportunities to encounter them.

Springtime, particularly from March to May, is often considered the peak season for black grouper fishing in Miami Beach. During this period, black grouper move into shallower waters near reefs, wrecks, and rocky structures to spawn, making them more accessible to anglers. Anglers can expect to find black grouper actively feeding during this time, providing ample opportunities for thrilling battles and memorable catches.

While spring is the primary season for black grouper in Miami Beach, they can still be encountered throughout the year, albeit with varying abundance and activity levels. During the summer months, black grouper may continue to inhabit nearshore and offshore waters, particularly around structure-rich areas. Anglers who are familiar with black grouper habitat preferences and feeding behavior can adapt their techniques accordingly to maximize their chances of success year-round. Staying updated on any changes to regulations or seasonal closures is essential for anglers looking to target black grouper responsibly and sustainably in the waters off Miami Beach.

What techniques are popular for catching black grouper in Miami Beach?

When it comes to targeting black grouper in Miami Beach, anglers employ various techniques to increase their chances of success. One effective method is bottom fishing with live or cut bait near the structures where black grouper congregate. Anglers often use live baits such as pinfish, grunts, or blue runners, as well as cut bait such as squid or mullet, to entice black grouper into striking.

Another popular technique for black grouper fishing in Miami Beach is vertical jigging with heavy metal jigs or large soft plastics. Anglers drop the jig down to the desired depth and jig it up and down to mimic the movement of injured baitfish. This method can be highly effective in enticing black grouper to strike, particularly when fishing over rocky bottoms or areas with strong currents. Vertical jigging allows anglers to cover a large area of water and explore different depths until they locate the desired strike zone, making it a versatile and productive technique for targeting black grouper.

Chumming can also be a successful tactic for attracting black grouper to an area and encouraging them to feed. Anglers use a mixture of ground-up fish or commercial chum products to create a scent trail in the water, drawing black grouper closer to the boat. Once black grouper are attracted to the chum slick, anglers can cast bait or lures into the feeding frenzy to entice strikes.

    Great captain and first mate.

    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.

    Capt Jed is a professional, responsible seaman. He took us the where the fish are and got us hooked up. He is personable and worked hard to make sure we took home dinner and more. We would be happy to have him Capt for us anytime.

    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!

    I would highly recommend fishing with George. He is super knowledgeable about the area fishing and he kept me busy catching fish. George is also just a cool dude who was fun to be around during and after fishing. His yacht club cooked up our fish after George cleaned them. It was great! We brought 5 fish in and put at least that many back in the water.

    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.
