In the 3/4 day trip it allows us to do more than the half day trip. That includes trolling, live bait, kite fishing, bottom fishing, deep dropping, or shark fishing. Our fishery in south Florida changes throughout the year so we can run offshore for mahi or bottom fish for snappers or groupers. We usually like to talk to the customers about what they would like to target and what is in season and make a game plan from that. We like to fish hard and have fun doing it! Read More

What is amberjack in Miami all about?

Amberjack, known for their powerful fighting abilities and robust size, are a popular target for anglers exploring Miami's offshore waters. These prized gamefish are commonly found in the warm, deep waters off Miami's coast, particularly around wrecks, reefs, and other offshore structures. Amberjack are highly sought after for their challenging fights and delicious flesh, making them a favorite among sport anglers in the region.

The prime seasons for targeting amberjack in Miami typically coincide with warmer months when water temperatures rise and baitfish become abundant. During these times, amberjack are more active and can be found in greater numbers near offshore structures where they feed on smaller fish and crustaceans. Anglers targeting amberjack during these peak seasons may have better success, as the fish are more likely to be actively feeding and readily taking bait.

When it comes to fishing techniques, anglers often use heavy tackle and live bait to target amberjack in Miami. Dropping live baitfish or vertical jigs near wrecks and reefs where amberjack congregate can yield productive results. Additionally, anglers may employ bottom fishing techniques using cut bait or squid to entice strikes from these powerful fish. With their impressive strength and tenacity, hooking into an amberjack provides anglers with an exhilarating battle and a rewarding catch in Miami's offshore waters.

What are the most popular months to fish for amberjack in Miami?

In Miami, the seasons for targeting amberjack typically coincide with warmer months, particularly during spring and summer. As temperatures rise, so does the activity of these robust fish, making them more prevalent and active in the offshore waters. During these peak seasons, amberjack can be found congregating around wrecks, reefs, and other offshore structures where they feed on smaller fish and crustaceans. Anglers targeting amberjack during these times often find greater success, as the fish are more likely to be actively feeding and readily taking bait.

While amberjack can be encountered year-round in Miami's offshore waters, their presence may be less predictable during the cooler months of fall and winter. As water temperatures drop, amberjack may migrate to deeper offshore areas or follow warmer oceanic currents in search of optimal feeding grounds. However, with changing weather patterns and oceanic conditions, anglers may still have opportunities to target amberjack throughout the year, albeit with varying levels of success.

Staying informed about seasonal patterns, water temperatures, and oceanic currents can help anglers maximize their chances of encountering amberjack in Miami's waters. During the prime seasons, anglers can expect more consistent sightings and encounters with these powerful fish, providing ample opportunities for thrilling battles and rewarding catches. Whether fishing from a boat, kayak, or offshore charter, targeting amberjack in Miami's offshore waters offers anglers an exhilarating challenge and the chance to land a prized gamefish.

What techniques are popular for catching amberjack in Miami?

When it comes to targeting amberjack in Miami's offshore waters, anglers employ a variety of effective fishing techniques to increase their chances of success. One popular method is vertical jigging, where anglers use heavy metal jigs to mimic the movement of injured or fleeing baitfish. Vertical jigging is particularly effective when targeting amberjack around wrecks, reefs, and other offshore structures where these fish congregate. Anglers drop the jig down to the desired depth and then jig it up and down to entice strikes from amberjack lurking below.

Another effective technique for catching amberjack in Miami is live bait fishing. Anglers deploy live baitfish, such as blue runners or pilchards, rigged on heavy-duty tackle near wrecks and reefs where amberjack are known to inhabit. The live baitfish are allowed to swim naturally, enticing strikes from hungry amberjack. This method requires patience and precision, as anglers must carefully present the bait in the strike zone and be ready to set the hook when a fish takes the bait.

Additionally, anglers targeting amberjack in Miami may use bottom fishing techniques with cut bait or squid. Anglers deploy the bait near the bottom around wrecks and reefs, where amberjack are often found feeding. This method can be effective when amberjack are not actively feeding near the surface and prefer to forage closer to the seafloor. With their powerful runs and tenacious fighting abilities, hooking into an amberjack provides anglers with an exhilarating battle and a rewarding catch in Miami's offshore waters.

What other species are popular in Miami?

Aside from targeting amberjack, anglers exploring Miami's offshore waters have a diverse range of other species to pursue. One popular catch is the sailfish, known for its impressive speed and acrobatic leaps when hooked. Sailfish are abundant in Miami's waters, particularly during the winter months, and anglers often encounter them near offshore structures and along the Gulf Stream. With their striking appearance and thrilling fights, sailfish provide anglers with memorable fishing experiences and the chance to land a trophy-sized catch.

Another prized species in Miami's offshore waters is the mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado. Mahi-mahi are highly migratory and can be found in the warm, deep waters off Miami's coast throughout the year. These colorful and fast-swimming fish are often encountered near floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures, where they congregate to feed on small fish, squid, and crustaceans. Anglers targeting mahi-mahi in Miami's waters can employ a variety of techniques, including trolling with artificial lures, casting with live bait, and drifting with chum.

In addition to sailfish and mahi-mahi, Miami's offshore waters offer opportunities to catch a variety of other species, including wahoo, kingfish, tuna, and snapper. Whether fishing from a boat, kayak, or offshore charter, anglers can enjoy the thrill of targeting a diverse range of fish species throughout the year. With its rich biodiversity and abundance of fishing opportunities, Miami remains a premier destination for anglers seeking unforgettable offshore adventures and the chance to land trophy-sized catches.

    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.

    Paul F. with Jedidiah P. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    Taylor was amazing! He knew exactly what he was doing; the spots to go to, which bait to use to catch certain fish, and how to set up each individual line. He also knew when each line would be hooked or something was biting, even when we couldn’t see it. We ended up with one big catch that broke the line as we spent what felt like hours fighting it. Even though we didn’t end up feeling anything in, it was still a great experience out on the water, talking about a range of topics with Taylor. We would definitely come back and book with Taylor and Wicked Cuda again!

    Breyhauna J. with Taylor S. of Fort Lauderdale, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    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.

    Katie B. with Jorge F. of Miami, Florida
