trip description for Miami Beach Fishing Adventure in Miami Beach

It takes around 15 minutes to reach the ocean from Captain Maurice's dock and most of the fish you'll catch are within two miles offshore. Miami's warm Gulf Stream waters produce fish all year round, including Sailfish, Wahoo, Dolphin, Kingfish, Tuna, Amberjack, Barracuda and Sharks. Miami is unique because you don't have to commit to a full day adventure to chase after these big pelagic species, and though you may have better chances at bigger fish on longer adventures, the possibility (for big fish) is always there on the 4 hour as well! Captain Maurice will provide all the necessary gear for your adventure! All he recommends you bring are your favorite snacks and drinks, and your sun protection. He'll take care of the rest.

What is cobia fishing in Miami all about?

Cobia, a prized game fish known for its strength and delicious flesh, is a popular target for anglers in Miami's coastal waters. These powerful fish are often found near reefs, wrecks, and other underwater structures, where they hunt for prey such as baitfish and crustaceans. Cobia are known for their opportunistic feeding habits and can be caught using a variety of techniques, making them a versatile species to target for anglers of all skill levels. Whether fishing from a boat or shore, anglers in Miami have the opportunity to hook into these prized fish throughout the year.

One of the best times to target cobia in Miami is during their seasonal migrations, which typically occur in the spring and fall. During these periods, cobia move along the coast in search of warmer waters and abundant food sources, providing anglers with excellent opportunities for catching them. Anglers often encounter cobia while fishing for other species such as kingfish or tarpon, as cobia are known to follow these fish and feed on the same prey. Using live bait, artificial lures, or even sight-fishing techniques, anglers can increase their chances of hooking into these prized fish during their migrations.

Cobia fishing in Miami offers anglers the chance to experience the thrill of battling these powerful fish against the backdrop of the city's stunning coastal scenery. Whether casting from a boat or fishing from shore, anglers can enjoy the challenge of hooking into cobia and testing their skills against these formidable opponents. With their strong runs and stubborn fights, cobia provide anglers with an exhilarating fishing experience that is sure to create lasting memories.

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

In Miami, understanding the seasonal patterns of cobia is crucial for anglers looking to target these prized fish. While cobia can be found in the waters off Miami year-round, their behavior and abundance vary throughout the seasons. Spring and fall are generally considered prime seasons for cobia fishing in Miami. During these transitional periods, cobia migrate along the coast in search of warmer waters and abundant food sources. Anglers can often find cobia congregating near reefs, wrecks, and other underwater structures, where they hunt for prey such as baitfish and crustaceans.

During the summer months, cobia in Miami may become more scattered and less predictable as they adjust to warmer water temperatures. However, anglers can still encounter cobia while fishing for other species such as kingfish or tarpon, as cobia are known to follow these fish and feed on the same prey. Additionally, anglers may find success targeting cobia in deeper waters or along channels, where they seek shelter and ambush prey.

Various factors such as water temperature, currents, and bait availability influence the movements and behavior of cobia in Miami's waters. Anglers should stay informed about these seasonal nuances and adapt their fishing strategies accordingly. Whether it's targeting nearshore structures during the spring and fall migrations or exploring deeper waters during the summer months, understanding the seasonal patterns of cobia fishing in Miami is key to enjoying consistent success on the water.

What techniques are popular for catching cobia in Miami?

Cobia fishing in Miami offers anglers a variety of effective techniques to target these prized game fish. One popular method is sight-fishing in shallow waters, particularly during the spring and fall migrations when cobia are more active. Anglers scan the surface for cobia cruising near the water's surface or around structures such as buoys, markers, or floating debris. Once spotted, anglers carefully cast live bait, such as live mullet or shrimp, or artificial lures such as jigs or swimbaits, to entice the cobia into striking. Sight-fishing for cobia requires patience, keen observation, and accurate casting to successfully hook into these powerful fish.

Another productive technique for cobia fishing in Miami is bottom fishing near reefs, wrecks, or other underwater structures where cobia tend to congregate. Anglers anchor their boats over productive areas and deploy baited rigs or lures to the bottom, enticing cobia feeding on prey such as baitfish or crustaceans. Live bait such as blue runners, pinfish, or mullet is often preferred, but cut bait or artificial lures can also produce strikes. Anglers must be prepared for the strong runs and powerful fights that cobia are known for, as they put up formidable battles once hooked.

Trolling is also a popular technique for targeting cobia in Miami's coastal waters. Anglers troll along nearshore reefs, channels, or along the coastlines, dragging baits or lures behind the boat to cover a wide area and locate schools of cobia. Trolling with live baits such as mullet or artificial lures such as diving plugs or spoons can be effective in enticing cobia to strike. Anglers may vary the speed and depth of their trolling presentation to experiment with what triggers the most strikes from cobia. Overall, mastering these techniques is essential for anglers looking to enjoy successful cobia fishing adventures in the waters of Miami.

What other species are popular in Miami?

In addition to cobia, Miami's waters offer anglers a diverse array of species to target throughout the year. One popular species is the mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado. Mahi-mahi are abundant in Miami's offshore waters, particularly during the warmer months, and are known for their vibrant colors and acrobatic leaps when hooked. Anglers often target mahi-mahi by trolling with rigged baits or lures near floating debris, weed lines, or offshore structures where these fish congregate.

Another prized catch in Miami's waters is the sailfish, a renowned game fish famous for its impressive speed and aerial displays. Sailfish are highly sought after by anglers for their thrilling fights and are often targeted during the winter months when they migrate along the coast of Miami. Anglers typically employ trolling techniques with rigged baits or lures to entice sailfish, with multiple lines deployed to cover a wide area and increase their chances of hooking into these majestic creatures.

For anglers seeking inshore fishing opportunities, Miami offers excellent options such as snook, tarpon, and redfish. Snook, known for their powerful strikes and challenging fights, inhabit the mangrove-lined shorelines, bridges, and estuaries throughout Miami's backcountry areas. Tarpon, or "silver kings," migrate along the coast of Miami during the spring and summer months, providing anglers with thrilling opportunities for sight-fishing and targeting these majestic fish. Redfish, prized for their strength and resilience, can be found in the shallow flats, grass beds, and channels of Miami's coastal waters year-round, offering anglers exciting opportunities for both sight-fishing and casting. Overall, Miami provides anglers with a wealth of fishing opportunities, from offshore big game fishing to inshore angling adventures, ensuring there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences

    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.

    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!
