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.

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.

What is yellowfin tuna fishing in Miami Beach all about?

Yellowfin tuna are highly sought-after gamefish found in the waters off Miami Beach, offering anglers thrilling battles and delicious table fare. These powerful and fast-swimming fish are known for their distinctive yellow fins and streamlined bodies, making them a prized catch for both recreational and commercial fishermen. Yellowfin tuna are often found in offshore waters, where they patrol the warm currents and prey on baitfish such as flying fish, squid, and smaller tuna species.

The waters off Miami Beach provide excellent opportunities for targeting yellowfin tuna throughout the year, although their abundance may vary depending on factors such as water temperature, currents, and bait availability. Yellowfin tuna are commonly encountered offshore, where they inhabit areas with productive feeding grounds, such as underwater seamounts, ridges, and temperature breaks. Anglers typically target yellowfin tuna using a variety of techniques, including trolling with artificial lures, live bait fishing, and chunking with fresh or frozen bait.

When targeting yellowfin tuna in Miami Beach, anglers often employ specialized fishing gear and techniques to maximize their chances of success. Heavy-duty stand-up tackle with strong rods, reels, and lines is essential for handling the powerful runs and aerial acrobatics of these hard-fighting fish. Anglers may also use techniques such as chumming, drifting, and kite fishing to attract and entice yellowfin tuna to strike. With their combination of speed, power, and agility, yellowfin tuna provide anglers with an exhilarating fishing experience that is sure to create lasting memories.

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

In Miami Beach, the presence and abundance of yellowfin tuna can vary throughout the year, influenced by factors such as water temperature, currents, and the migratory patterns of baitfish. Generally, yellowfin tuna can be found in the waters off Miami Beach year-round, but their peak seasons for fishing often coincide with changes in water temperature and baitfish migrations. Spring and summer months, particularly from March to August, are typically considered prime time for targeting yellowfin tuna in Miami Beach, as warmer waters attract baitfish and stimulate feeding activity.

During the spring and summer seasons, yellowfin tuna can be found in greater numbers and are more actively feeding, making them more accessible to anglers. As water temperatures rise, yellowfin tuna migrate closer to the surface and can be found feeding near offshore structures, such as seamounts, ridges, and underwater canyons. Anglers often encounter schools of yellowfin tuna patrolling these productive areas, where they prey on baitfish like flying fish, squid, and smaller tuna species.

Fall and winter months may also offer opportunities for yellowfin tuna fishing in Miami Beach, although their presence may be less consistent compared to the warmer months. As water temperatures cool, yellowfin tuna may migrate to deeper offshore waters or move southward in search of warmer conditions. However, dedicated anglers who venture offshore during the fall and winter seasons can still encounter yellowfin tuna, especially during periods of stable weather and favorable sea conditions.

What techniques are popular for catching yellowfin tuna in Miami Beach?

Yellowfin tuna fishing in Miami Beach requires anglers to employ a variety of techniques to maximize their chances of success. One popular method is trolling, where anglers trail lures or rigged baits behind a moving boat at varying speeds. In Miami Beach, trolling is often done using spreader bars, feather lures, or skirted trolling lures designed to mimic the appearance and movement of baitfish. Anglers may also use diving plugs or deep-diving lures to target yellowfin tuna at different depths in the water column.

Another effective technique for yellowfin tuna fishing in Miami Beach is chunking. Chunking involves cutting up chunks of baitfish, such as bonito or mackerel, and dispersing them in the water to create a scent trail. Anglers then deploy hooked baits or live baitfish into the chum slick, allowing them to drift naturally with the current. This method can be particularly productive when targeting yellowfin tuna that are actively feeding near the surface or mid-water depths.

For anglers targeting larger yellowfin tuna in Miami Beach, live bait fishing is often preferred. This involves using live baitfish, such as blue runners, ballyhoo, or pilchards, rigged on circle hooks and presented either on the surface or at various depths using weighted rigs or downriggers. Live bait fishing allows anglers to present a natural-looking and enticing meal to yellowfin tuna, increasing the likelihood of a successful hookup. Additionally, using heavier tackle and gear, such as stout rods, large spinning or conventional reels, and strong monofilament or braided fishing line, is essential when targeting larger yellowfin tuna to handle their powerful runs and deep dives.

What other species are popular in Miami Beach?

In addition to yellowfin tuna, Miami Beach offers a diverse range of fish species for anglers to target, providing plenty of opportunities for exciting fishing experiences. One popular species to catch in Miami Beach is mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado. These colorful and acrobatic fish are commonly found in offshore waters around floating debris, weed lines, and underwater structures. Anglers often use trolling techniques with brightly colored lures or live baitfish to attract mahi-mahi, and once hooked, they put up a spirited fight, making them a favorite among sport fishermen.

Another prized species for anglers in Miami Beach is wahoo, known for their speed and powerful runs. Wahoo are typically found in deep offshore waters, where they hunt for prey near steep drop-offs, underwater ridges, and offshore reefs. Trolling high-speed lures, such as jet heads or diving plugs, is a common technique for targeting wahoo in Miami Beach. Anglers may also deploy live baitfish or rigged baits at different depths to entice these fast-moving predators. Wahoo are highly prized for their delicious white meat and challenging nature, making them a sought-after catch for both recreational and commercial fishermen.

Miami Beach is also home to a variety of bottom-dwelling species, including snappers and groupers, which provide excellent opportunities for anglers to test their skills. Yellowtail snapper, mutton snapper, and mangrove snapper are commonly targeted in the nearshore and offshore waters of Miami Beach. These fish are often found around rocky outcrops, reefs, and wrecks, where they feed on crustaceans and small baitfish. Bottom fishing with live or cut bait, as well as jigging with artificial lures, are effective techniques for catching snappers in Miami Beach. Additionally, anglers can target species like red grouper, black grouper, and gag grouper using similar bottom fishing techniques, adding variety to their fishing adventures in Miami Beach.

    Captain Nelson and his team were extraordinary. They were incredibly hospitable and ensured we had a great afternoon. We spoke on the phone prior to our charter day and Captain Nelson made sure we were coordinated and knew what to bring, expect, etc. We caught a world class sailfish and several grouper.
