Launch out of Dinner Key with Captain Christopher for an epic day experiencing everything the Miami waters have to offer! Relax with Captain Chris, everything is always under control. His local knowledge & patience for finding the fish is unparalleled, (recently landing a 400 pound Blue Marlin) made a crew of 3 women memories for a lifetime! To make sure you have the best possible charter experience, Captain Christopher is ready and rearing to do any kind of fishing you'd like to do. Whether that's chasing Swords, kite fishing for Sails, deep dropping for Tilefish, jigging, or bottom fishing! He can even guide spearfishing adventures, though you'll have to bring your own gear for that. Captain Christopher has some secret honey holes where the Snapper bite is on rain or shine. So if all else fails, which is rarely the case, Captain Christopher will make sure you get back to the dock with a cooler full of fish! Captain Christophers' brand new Dusky Center Console is 29 feet from propellor to bow. The whole front of the boat is a padded lounge area, making this charter great for families and avid fishermen alike! Not to mention, she comes loaded with everything you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water from rods, reels, and tackle, to fishing licenses, ice, soft drinks and water! All you need to bring are some snacks and your shades, Captain Christopher will take care of the rest! One note is that you will get bait after meeting at the dock. You and Captain Chris can try and go out and catch the bait yourselves but it is also available for purchase. Captain Chris likes to tell his clients: "If time is of the essence, rather than burn time messing around catching bait, there are plenty of guys selling bait as we leave the dock and the 20-40$ is often well-spent cash head straight out to the bigger fish." But like everything else with Captain Chris, the decision is up to you! Read More

Fort Lauderdale coastline offers a wide array of game fish. One of the best parts of fishing here is that you don't have to go far out to get to the deep water fishing grounds. We have an abundant coral reef system and thirty feet to 100 feet and consistently gets deeper from there on. The local crystal blue waters offer reef fishing, shipwreck fishing and we are not far from the gulf-stream. Fort Lauderdale fishing attracts all types of anglers, from passionate salt water anglers or total newcomers looking to experience the sport of deep sea fishing and Captain Mike can accommodate all of them! Most common Target Species: Sailfish: Florida’s official state saltwater fish, this tackle buster inhabits tropical and subtropical waters. Sailfish usually travel alone or in small groups. The outstanding feature is the long, high first dorsal fin. Known for its high, acrobatic jumps, the sailfish is a favorite of blue-water anglers. Grouper: A generic name for several deepwater species, these bottom dwellers are important to both recreational and commercial fishermen. Red grouper and gag grouper (sometimes called black grouper) are most popular with anglers. Anglers typically “bottom fish” for these species, but during the cooler months, they can be caught in shallow water by trolling artificial lures. Snappers: An offshore species usually found in 60 to 440 feet. Red snapper is pinkish to red in color, and its pointed anal fin distinguishes it from other members of the snapper family. Juvenile red snapper once died by the millions in shrimp trawls, but new regulations have helped this species bounce back. Red snapper are considered one of the finest food fish found in Florida waters. Mackerels: This family includes both king mackerel and its smaller cousin, Spanish mackerel. These fish can be found in the western Atlantic Ocean from Maine to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and into the Gulf of Mexico. One of the state’s top ocean predators, kingfish are the favorite target of tournament fishermen. Children and family groups are always welcome at Lauderdale Sport Fishing and it doesn't matter if you are a seasoned angler or have never been fishing before. Captain Mike will help you catch that fish of your life with his extremely customer friendly attitude so you ca enjoy your trip to the fullest! Captain Mike at Lauderdale Sport Fishing has many years of experience fishing at the Fort Lauderdale waters so whether it's a corporate group or you are bringing the family and kids, let Lauderdale Sport Fishing be your choice for sportfishing in South Florida.

What is red snapper fishing in Miami Beach all about?

Red snapper, prized for their firm texture and sweet flavor, are a highly sought-after species among anglers in Miami Beach. These colorful and robust fish inhabit the reefs and wrecks scattered throughout the offshore waters of Miami Beach. Red snapper are known for their cautious feeding habits, often requiring anglers to employ patience and finesse to entice a bite.

One effective method for targeting red snapper in Miami Beach is bottom fishing with live or cut bait near the structures where they congregate. Anglers often use small live baits such as pinfish, grunts, or squid, as well as cut bait such as mullet or bonito, to attract red snapper. Fishing near reefs, wrecks, or other underwater structures increases the likelihood of encountering these prized fish, as they often use such areas as shelter and ambush points to prey on passing baitfish and crustaceans.

Another popular technique for red snapper fishing in Miami Beach is vertical jigging with heavy metal jigs or 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 red snapper 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. With their stunning colors and delectable taste, landing a trophy-sized red snapper 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 red snapper fishing in Miami Beach?

Red snapper seasons in Miami Beach are typically dictated by regulations set by fishery management authorities to ensure sustainable harvests. These seasons can vary from year to year and are often based on scientific assessments of red snapper populations. In the waters off Miami Beach, red snapper may be targeted during specific open seasons established by state and federal agencies.

The primary red snapper season in Miami Beach usually occurs during the summer months when the fish are most abundant and actively feeding. During this time, anglers can expect favorable conditions for targeting red snapper near reefs, wrecks, and other offshore structures. However, it's essential for anglers to stay informed about any changes to regulations or season dates to ensure compliance with fishing regulations.

Outside of the primary season, anglers may have limited opportunities to target red snapper due to seasonal closures or quota restrictions. These closures are designed to protect red snapper populations during times when they are most vulnerable, such as during spawning periods. Anglers should consult local authorities or check with charter captains for the latest information on red snapper seasons and regulations in Miami Beach to plan their fishing trips accordingly.

What techniques are popular for catching red snapper in Miami Beach?

When it comes to targeting red snapper in Miami Beach, anglers often employ a variety of tried-and-tested techniques to increase their chances of success. One popular method is bottom fishing with live or cut bait near the structures where red snapper congregate. Anglers typically use small live baits such as pinfish, grunts, or squid, as well as cut bait like mullet or bonito, to attract red snapper. Fishing near reefs, wrecks, or other underwater structures is crucial, as red snapper often use these areas as shelter and ambush points to prey on passing baitfish and crustaceans.

Another effective technique for red snapper fishing in Miami Beach is jigging with heavy metal jigs or 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 red snapper to strike, especially 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 red snapper.

Chumming can also be an effective tactic for attracting red snapper to an area and encouraging them to feed. Anglers can use a mixture of ground-up fish or commercial chum products to create a scent trail in the water, drawing red snapper closer to the boat or shore. Once red snapper are attracted to the chum slick, anglers can cast bait or lures into the feeding frenzy to entice strikes. By employing a combination of bottom fishing, jigging, and chumming techniques, anglers can increase their chances of hooking into red snapper and enjoy a rewarding fishing experience in the waters off Miami Beach.

What other species are popular in Miami Beach?

Apart from red snapper, Miami Beach offers anglers a diverse range of other species to target, ensuring exciting fishing opportunities year-round. One popular catch among local fishermen is the mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado, prized for its vibrant colors and delicious flesh. Mahi-mahi are commonly found in offshore waters, particularly around floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures. Anglers often target mahi-mahi by trolling with brightly colored lures or rigged baits, as well as casting with live bait or artificial lures, providing an exhilarating challenge for those seeking fast-paced action on the water.

Another sought-after species in Miami Beach is the grouper, renowned for its firm texture and savory taste. Grouper inhabit the reefs, wrecks, and rocky structures scattered throughout the offshore waters of Miami Beach. Anglers often target grouper by bottom fishing with live or cut bait near these structures, as well as by jigging with heavy metal jigs or soft plastics. Grouper can provide an exciting challenge for anglers due to their powerful strikes and ability to retreat into the safety of underwater structures, requiring skill and patience to land.

In addition to mahi-mahi and grouper, Miami Beach waters are home to a variety of other sought-after species, including kingfish, snapper, and tarpon. Whether fishing from a boat, kayak, or the shoreline, anglers can explore the diverse habitats and fishing grounds around Miami Beach to pursue their preferred species.

    I've been out on charters many, many times mostly down the east coast but also in Cabo. I must say the trip out with captain Manny is one of the two best trips out I've ever experienced. Her out is on fish, Jordan (the mate) ensured the rods and basis were correct and ready to catch fish. This was just a half day trip but next trip I'm going full day. Wow, I highly recommend Captain Manny!!!!! The catch highlights have to include the 54" barracuda and a 7' shark (it took two of us tag teaming and over 30 minutes to bring the shark alongside the boat for measurement.

    Maurice and his son took 5 of us out and despite unusual 50 degree rainy weather in Miami we absolutely crushed it. Caught some kingfish, false albacore, and-the cherry on top-a beautiful sailfish. Maurice worked tirelessly to put us on fish and even stayed out a little longer than we should have to get us more bites. He runs a very clean operation and I’ll be back for more.
