trip description for Deep Sea Deep Dropping in Miami

Deep Dropping is definitely the method of choice if you are looking to put some delicious table fare in the box! Deep dropping is a newer style of fishing and the fishing grounds are still pristine, this is b/c deep water locations are usually way offshore and difficult to get to in most place, not Miami though!

All he recommends that you bring are your favorite snacks and drinks, and a desire to haul some tasty fish up from the deep blue!

trip description for Miami Beach Sportfishing Trip in Miami Beach

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

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

    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.
