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.

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.

What is triggerfish fishing in Miami Beach all about?

In the waters around Miami Beach, triggerfish are a common and sought-after species among anglers. These fish are known for their distinctive appearance, with colorful patterns and a unique shape that includes a stout body and large, powerful jaws. Triggerfish inhabit nearshore and offshore reefs, wrecks, and rocky bottoms, making them accessible to both shore and boat anglers. Their reputation as strong fighters and tasty table fare adds to their appeal among fishermen of all skill levels.

Triggerfish can be found in the waters off Miami Beach throughout the year, although their abundance may vary depending on the season. In general, they are more abundant during the warmer months, particularly from spring through early fall. During this time, triggerfish are often encountered while targeting other reef-dwelling species such as snapper and grouper. However, they can be caught year-round with the right techniques and knowledge of their preferred habitats.

When targeting triggerfish in Miami Beach, anglers often use light to medium tackle and employ a variety of fishing techniques. Bottom fishing with live or dead bait, such as shrimp, squid, or cut bait, is a popular method for enticing triggerfish to bite. Additionally, anglers may use artificial lures such as small jigs or soft plastics, particularly when fishing in deeper water or targeting larger specimens. Triggerfish are known to be cautious feeders, so presenting baits or lures in a natural manner and with minimal disturbance is key to success. Overall, triggerfish provide an exciting and rewarding fishing experience for anglers exploring the waters around Miami Beach.

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

In Miami Beach, triggerfish can be found year-round, but their abundance may vary depending on the season. Triggerfish are typically more active and abundant during the warmer months, which span from spring through early fall. During this time, triggerfish are often encountered in greater numbers as they migrate closer to shore and inhabit nearshore reefs, wrecks, and rocky bottoms. Anglers targeting triggerfish during these seasons can expect better success rates and may encounter larger specimens.

During the cooler months, particularly in late fall and winter, triggerfish activity may decrease as water temperatures drop. While triggerfish can still be found in the waters off Miami Beach during these seasons, they may move to deeper or offshore areas to seek warmer water temperatures. Anglers may need to adjust their fishing techniques and locations to target triggerfish effectively during the cooler months. However, with proper knowledge of their habits and preferred habitats, anglers can still have success catching triggerfish year-round.

Overall, triggerfish seasons in Miami Beach offer anglers ample opportunities to target this popular species throughout the year. Whether fishing from shore, a pier, or a boat, anglers can enjoy targeting triggerfish using various techniques and bait options. By understanding the seasonal patterns and behaviors of triggerfish, anglers can maximize their chances of success and enjoy a rewarding fishing experience in the waters off Miami Beach.

What techniques are popular for catching triggerfish in Miami Beach?

When fishing for triggerfish in Miami Beach, anglers often employ a variety of techniques to entice these feisty and tenacious fighters. One effective method is bottom fishing, where anglers target triggerfish near reefs, wrecks, and rocky structures where they congregate. Using a bottom rig with a small hook baited with shrimp, squid, or cut bait can attract triggerfish, which are known for their voracious appetites. Anglers should ensure their rigs are properly weighted to reach the desired depth where triggerfish are likely to be feeding.

Another popular technique for catching triggerfish is jigging. Anglers can use lightweight jigs tipped with bait or soft plastic lures to mimic the movement of small prey, attracting triggerfish to strike. Jigging allows anglers to cover a larger area and explore different depths, making it an effective technique for targeting triggerfish in various habitats. Anglers should vary their jigging speed and retrieve to find the most effective presentation for triggering strikes from triggerfish.

Additionally, chumming can be an effective strategy for attracting triggerfish to the area. Anglers can create a chum slick by dispersing small pieces of bait or fish oil into the water, enticing triggerfish to investigate and feed. Once triggerfish are drawn to the area, anglers can cast their baits or lures into the chum slick and wait for bites. Chumming can be particularly effective when fishing from a stationary position, such as a anchored boat or pier, allowing anglers to concentrate triggerfish in the vicinity for more consistent action. Overall, using a combination of bottom fishing, jigging, and chumming techniques can increase anglers' chances of success when targeting triggerfish in the waters off Miami Beach.

What other species are popular in Miami Beach?

In addition to triggerfish, anglers fishing in the waters off Miami Beach have a diverse range of species to target, providing opportunities for exciting and varied fishing experiences. One popular species to catch is the snapper, with several varieties inhabiting the reefs and structures offshore. Yellowtail snapper, mangrove snapper, and mutton snapper are among the most sought-after species, known for their delicious taste and challenging fights. Anglers often use live bait or small jigs to target snapper, focusing on rocky outcrops, wrecks, and artificial reefs where these fish congregate.

Another species commonly targeted by anglers in Miami Beach is the grouper. Various grouper species, including red grouper, gag grouper, and black grouper, inhabit the offshore waters, offering anglers the chance to reel in large and powerful fish. Grouper are often found near rocky bottoms, ledges, and underwater structures, where they lie in wait for passing prey. Anglers typically use live bait, such as pinfish or grunts, and employ bottom fishing techniques to entice grouper to strike. Grouper fishing requires patience and skill due to the fish's tendency to retreat into their rocky lairs once hooked.

Additionally, pelagic species such as mahi-mahi, wahoo, and kingfish are frequently targeted by anglers trolling offshore waters. These fast-swimming fish patrol the open ocean in search of prey and can provide thrilling action for anglers trolling with artificial lures or rigged baits. Mahi-mahi, in particular, are prized for their acrobatic leaps and vibrant colors, making them a favorite among sport fishermen. Anglers often target pelagic species by trolling along weed lines, current edges, and underwater structures where these fish are likely to congregate. Overall, Miami Beach offers a wide range of species for anglers to target, ensuring there's always something exciting to catch for fishermen of all skill levels.
