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

What is striped marlin in Miami all about?

While Miami's coastal waters are renowned for their diverse marine life, striped marlin sightings in this region are relatively rare. Striped marlin are pelagic fish, typically found in deeper offshore waters and often associated with warmer currents. While they may occasionally venture into the waters off Miami during migration periods, sightings are sporadic, and catching them within close proximity to the city is uncommon. Anglers seeking striped marlin in Miami may need to venture far offshore and employ specialized techniques to target these elusive fish.

For those determined to pursue striped marlin in Miami's waters, offshore trolling is the most common technique employed. Anglers troll with large, brightly colored lures or rigged baitfish behind a moving boat, covering vast stretches of open water in search of marlin. Trolling allows anglers to present their baits at various depths and distances from the boat, increasing their chances of encountering passing marlin. Additionally, anglers may use outriggers to spread multiple lines across the water, maximizing their coverage and increasing the likelihood of attracting a striped marlin.

Despite the challenges associated with targeting striped marlin in Miami, the excitement and anticipation of potentially hooking into one of these majestic fish make the endeavor worthwhile for many anglers. The thrill of witnessing a striped marlin's acrobatic jumps and powerful runs is an experience unlike any other, making it a sought-after trophy among sport fishermen. While sightings may be infrequent, the possibility of encountering a striped marlin adds an element of adventure and intrigue to offshore fishing excursions off the coast of Miami.

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

In Miami's coastal waters, striped marlin sightings are relatively rare, and their presence is sporadic throughout the year. Striped marlin are pelagic fish that typically inhabit deeper offshore waters, often associated with warmer currents. While they may occasionally venture into the waters off Miami during migration periods, their presence is not consistent, making striped marlin sightings unpredictable. As such, there isn't a distinct "season" for targeting striped marlin in Miami, as their movements are influenced by various factors such as water temperature, currents, and prey availability.

Despite the lack of a specific season, anglers may have a slightly higher chance of encountering striped marlin in Miami's waters during the warmer months. Striped marlin are known to migrate in search of food and favorable water conditions, and these migrations may bring them closer to the Miami coastline during certain times of the year. However, even during these periods, sightings can still be rare, and anglers may need to venture far offshore and be prepared for long days on the water to increase their chances of encountering a striped marlin.

Ultimately, targeting striped marlin in Miami requires patience, persistence, and a bit of luck. Anglers must be prepared to adapt to changing conditions and be willing to explore offshore waters in search of these elusive fish. While sightings may be infrequent, the excitement of potentially hooking into a striped marlin and experiencing the thrill of battling one of these majestic fish makes the pursuit a rewarding challenge for dedicated anglers exploring the waters off the coast of Miami.

What techniques are popular for catching striped marlin in Miami?

While striped marlin sightings in Miami's coastal waters are rare, anglers who are fortunate enough to encounter these majestic fish can employ several effective techniques to increase their chances of success. One common method for targeting striped marlin is offshore trolling. Anglers troll with large, brightly colored lures or rigged baitfish behind a moving boat, covering expansive stretches of open water in search of marlin. By varying trolling speeds and depths, anglers can adjust their presentation to entice striped marlin into striking. Additionally, using outriggers to spread multiple lines across the water can increase the chances of attracting a passing marlin.

Another technique for striped marlin fishing in Miami is live baiting. Anglers deploy live baitfish, such as mackerel or bonito, rigged with circle hooks and weight to simulate natural prey behavior. Live bait is typically fished near the surface or at mid-depths, where striped marlin are known to feed. Anglers may also employ teasers, such as plastic squid or bird teasers, to attract striped marlin to the bait. Once a marlin is sighted, anglers can pitch the live bait towards the fish and wait for a strike.

Fly fishing for striped marlin is a challenging yet rewarding technique that some anglers may choose to pursue in Miami's waters. This method requires specialized equipment, including heavy fly rods, large flies, and sturdy leaders. Anglers cast large, colorful flies towards marlin sighted near the surface or around structure-rich areas. Striped marlin can be particularly aggressive towards flies, providing anglers with thrilling strikes and exhilarating battles. However, fly fishing for striped marlin requires skill, patience, and precise casting to successfully hook and land these elusive fish.

What other species are popular in Miami?

In addition to the elusive striped marlin, Miami's coastal waters offer anglers a diverse array of other species to target for exciting fishing adventures. One popular catch among anglers is the sailfish, known for its impressive speed and acrobatic leaps when hooked. Sailfish are abundant in the offshore waters of Miami, particularly during the winter months, and anglers often target them by trolling with rigged baitfish or artificial lures. With their striking appearance and thrilling fights, sailfish provide anglers with memorable fishing experiences and the chance to land a trophy-sized catch.

Another sought-after species in Miami's waters is the mahi-mahi, also known as dolphin fish or dorado. Mahi-mahi are plentiful in the offshore waters of Miami, especially during the warmer months, and can often be found near floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures. Anglers target mahi-mahi using a variety of techniques, including trolling with brightly colored lures or live bait, casting with small jigs or lures, and drifting with live bait or chum. With their vibrant colors and delicious flesh, mahi-mahi provide anglers with thrilling battles and a tasty reward for their efforts.

In addition to sailfish and mahi-mahi, Miami's coastal waters offer opportunities to catch a variety of other species, including wahoo, kingfish, tuna, and snapper. Whether fishing from a boat, kayak, or shoreline, 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 experiences in the vibrant waters of South Florida.
