They can teach you if you don't have experience. We're targeting numbers of fish over size of fish on this trip to maximize action for everyone and we usually do quite well. It's still fishing but even on slow days most people bring home a few. Whatever you catch is yours to keep and when we get back to the dock, our deckhands offer free fish cleaning and we have fish bags and ice for you to take your fish home. Our techniques are either drift fishing or anchor fishing, both are very similar forms of bottom fish fishing. We are using cut bait such as squid, ballyhoo and sardines and all this is provided. We're fishing about a mile offshore where it starts to get deep and we fish the reefs, wrecks, patch reefs, buoys and current edges where we know the fish are. We've been doing this for over 40 years in the same location and we fish every single day on the same schedule. Give us a try and we'd love to have you out with us. Read More

trip description for Miami Premier Fishing in Miami

Captain John is located at the exciting Bayside Marketplace and Marina right in the heart of downtown Miami and just 5 minutes away from South Beach (just over MacArthur Causeway). Fish the Waters of Miami and Key Biscayne for some of the world's most prized sport fish! These trips are fantastic because there is only a short run to the fishing grounds. The water gets deep two miles offshore as you pass South Beach and Key Biscayne just off Miami. This means that you can still expect to chase down Sailfish, Kingfish, Blackfin Tuna, and other species on a short trip. The boat offers all types of tackle, from ultra-light to monster tackle. Everything is supplied for your trip except catering (beverages and/or food). Catering is easily arranged when you place your reservation. The boat features a fighting chair, rocket launcher, outriggers, and a large bait well. For your comfort in the air-conditioned saloon, there is a 32" flat-screen TV, stereo, comfortable seating with head and galley, and stateroom down. Your guide, Captain John, has been fishing the local and Bahamian waters for over thirty years, and he will ensure you have a pleasant trip. Bayside Marketplace, our place of departure, is in the heart of renovated downtown Miami and the Mall is host to the Hard Rock Cafe, Hooters, and a myriad of cafes and boutiques. From this dock, it is a short and interesting ride to the ocean past cruise ships at Dodge Island and million-dollar homes that are dotted around the channels and cuts. Read More

    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.

    Incredible fishing! I’ve never had the experience where I cast my line and within 5 seconds I get a strike. Over and over, it was constant cast and strike. Caught 20 fish in the first hour. Not only an expert guide for fishing, but Patrick is a really nice person to hang out with. Super chill to talk sports and fishing, but was cool and professional. He also recommended an awesome place for lunch where they grilled our catch! Top notch, highest recommendation possible!

    Robert B. with Patrick B. of Key Largo, Florida

    Jason was lively and knowledgeable. He definitely knows the area and loves fishing. He put us on a few good spots and we had fun. I will definitely choose him again!

    Chris was a great captain. Found water out of the wind. Found plenty of fish. Chis was cheerful and very helpful with baiting hooks and boating fish. Very hardworking captain. His boat was immaculate and he gave us a quick safety course before we launched.

    Captain Nels always knows how to find the fish, and not just your average sizes but mammoths and giants. Great crew and a great boat too, we loved the couches inside to catch a quick break from the sun.

    Had an absolute blast with Captain Chris! He was so nice and his passion and love for fishing made my bachelorette trip worthwhile! Our crew got to catch some great mackerel, yellowtail snapper and mutton snapper, plus more! Being able to celebrate my love for fishing and send off in the Keys with my gfs and Chris was the best! He got me on a huge tarpon hook up that I’ll absolutely never forget. Highly highly recommend this trip and we’ll certainly be back!!!

    Spencer picked us up as scheduled. Boat was extremely clean and well prepared. We were fishing for tarpon and had a wonderful time. Hooked into multiple fish and had one giant. Spencer was amazing overall and would absolutely do it again. Couldn’t recommend him more.

    We had a great day on the water. Caught a variety of fish, some bigger some smaller. Captain Jason proved to be a real people person, in firm control of his craft. Great conversationalist. Definitely would go out with him again.

  • ★★★★★
    We had a great full day trip with Captain Chris. Chris really helped my wife with his patience and encouragement fight big fish in deep water and use lighter tackle at the shallower wreck. She landed nice yellowtail, yellow jack, mackerel and amberjack. Chris worked hard all day keeping us in fish and rigged as the shark tax was high though the morning. At the end of the day we got great local restaurant recommendations and tips on cooking our catch. Loved the boat playlist! Highly recommend and hope to come back to fish with Chris again.

    John K. with Chris P. of Islamorada, Florida

    Superb! We have been on many, many guided fishing trips, and this one is the best I can remember! Ozzy took us to the fish we wanted to catch, and we caught more than twenty yellowtail snapper, plus a beautiful mutton snapper and a bonus barracuda! Ozzy and his wife Yari were professional, knowledgeable and super friendly! Highly recommend!
