Fishing in Miami is what dreams are made of, and the best way to make all of your dreams come true is to hop aboard one of the many Miami fishing charters and have the experienced crew lead the way.

There are a few options that you can take to fish in Miami. There are miles of flats in Biscayne Bay, many reefs and wrecks just offshore, and the deep blue water of the monsters. Most charters offer 4-hour/6-hour/8-hour trips, and specialty trips like Swordfish day and night charters and nighttime Tuna charters can also be found.

One of the beauties of fishing in Miami is when you get on board your charter for the day. It is only minutes before your rod is in the water, and the day has begun because the prime feeding grounds of the warm, nutrient-rich waters of the Gulf Stream are just offshore.

Florida reef and wreck fishing have an array of magnificent fish. You will encounter Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Cobia on your charter, all ready for your hook. You can also find some excellent shark fishing with Hammerhead, Mako, Bull, and Tigers.

Offshore the waters hold all of the most sought-after trophies and monsters on any angler’s bucket list. Marlin, Sailfish, Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Swordfish can all be found in the deep waters just miles offshore. A full-day charter is an excellent chance for you to land one or more of these beasts.

Miami is one of the best places in the world for Sailfish. You can catch these fun and feisty fish all year long and sometimes right offshore in the reefs and Government Cut.

Biscayne Bay is an excellent place for you to go for a fun and a relaxing day fishing for Redfish and Seatrout or an action-filled day searching for Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, and Snook. The inshore fishing of Miami maybe some of the best around because it is one of the most diverse coastal fisheries in the country. When fishing, you should be prepared for anything.

Miami is called the “Magic City,” and the waters of this fun city are magical.

There are many marinas throughout the city, but the best ones for finding and booking a Miami fishing charter are the big four: Crandon Park, Haulover Beach, Miami Beach and Bayside Marketplace.

Some of the best charter boat captains and fishing guides in the area can be found at Crandon Park Marina.

Haulover Beach Marina is the home base for multiple charter companies and a claim to the largest charter and drift-fishing fleet in South Florida.

Miami Beach Marina has a smaller fleet home to mainly private vessels. The Reward Fleet, with a popular party boat, is located here.

Bayside Marketplace is also a much smaller marina but has a much more relaxed atmosphere, and the private charters here are not pushing sales as much as other marinas and charters.

Generally, If the charter captain cancels the fishing charter due to bad weather, you can reschedule or get a full refund. We recommend reading the fishing charter operators booking policy before making a booking.
