Tarpon Fishing in Miami

The tarpon fishing in Miami still remains pretty good at night when you have an outgoing tide.  I have been fishing more with crabs than shrimp, which has helped increase our bite.  The snook are also out and we have been doing pretty good with them as well.  The bite should remain pretty solid going into our fall months, so give me a call to get out on the water.

 

Tarpon in the Everglades

 

The best part about being able to fish South Florida is there are many places to choose from on where to fish for tarpon.  The have been pretty thick in the Everglades the last few weeks.  Here is Peter from Argentina getting it done with a fly rod.

 

 

Miami Tarpon

The tarpon fishing remains steady in downtown Miami.  Lots of of fish around and hooking a bunch of fish each night.  Bringing them to the boat is sometimes a different story, but that’s tarpon fishing!!

 

Everglades Tarpon

We have spend the last week fly fishing in the Everglades.  The tarpon are there, from 10lbs. to 100lbs.  This is the time to hook into some big fish.  Here’s Charles with his first of many…

 

 

Tarpon

The tarpon fishing in Miami still remains pretty good.  It’s a night time deal because that’s when the fish feed on the shrimp that gets flushed through the bay.  Some nights are better than others, but this is your chance at a true giant.  Give me a call to hook a big fish!

Spring in the Glades

Spring time is here in South Florida, although its felt like this for a few weeks now.  The flats outfront have been absolutely on fire lately.  Alot of great shots on some tailing redfish and laid up snook.  We have had a few days where the winds were light and fish were everywhere.  I can’t remember the last time it’s been like this.  We have some slick days coming up before the next front and there definitely could be some giant tarpon lurking around the Glades.  I have a few openings over this next week to get in on some great Spring fishing in the Glades!

Miami Tarpon

Brent from Minnesota was in town looking to catch his first tarpon.  He ended up 1-5 on tarpon and landed a nice 40lber.  The tarpon are  showing up more and more everyday.  March is my favorite month to fish Miami.

 

 

Everglades/Miami Report

What a great week of weather it has been especially for January!  We have had some slick days and some great fishing to go along with it.  The highs have been in the mid 70′s and on some of those days there has been no wind at all.

The fishing in the Glades has been awesome!  The flats outfront have been more alive than I have seen in a very long time, which is great to see.  I have also fished deep in the backcountry and we have caught largemouth bass side by side with snook and redfish.  Not many places you can do that!
The tarpon is still fair to good, depending on the night.  Some nights we are hooking up to ten fish and other nights we are hooking 3 or 4 fish.  The best is still yet to come with that fishery.
The weather looks great for the next week, with no bad fronts, so call me and lets get out on the water.  I still have some great tides for February and March for tarpon fishing open in Miami, so give me a call and let’s get out on the water.

Flamingo Action

What a great week of weather we have had.  We have had light winds lately which makes running across a slicked out Whitewater Bay great! The water temps have been in the mid 60′s, which means fish are definitely in the backcountry.  There are still plenty fish out front on the flats and along the coast, but alot of fish have moved into there wintertime haunts.  Some days are better than others, but catching a variety of  species is not uncommon this time of year.  On the colder days we fished with shrimp and jig heads and on some of the warmer days this week, we have had some AWESOME sightfishing opportunities.  We had some great shots on laid up redfish and snook in some backcountry ponds this week that seemed very eager to eat anything.  The best part about this time of year is swimming along with the redfish and snook, were largemouth bass. Not many places you can catch saltwater species and freshwater species in one day!
The tarpon fishing is getting into full swing right now.  These cold fronts have pushed tarpon down to Miami and with the shrimp run starting, its only going to get better.  The tide will be ideal again on the 26th of this month and last for 5 or 6 days.  It’s great evening trip  for you right after work!
