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.

    Captain Brian was great. He put us on the fish right away. We had a blast catching all different kinds of species. We topped it off by catching a really nice barracuda. He was a lot of fun. Highly recommend him.

    Leo is the best guide for a real sport fishing day. He knows the spots and what the fish want. I recommand Leo 200%.
