Fall Fishing in Miami Has Been Great
Miami Fall Fishing Report continues to be GEAT. Fishing off Miami and Miami Beach is getting better and better as the days move us closer to the winter months. Sailfish fishing on the deep reef continues to be excellent. We are catching Sailfish while trolling rigged Ballyhoo and fresh Bonita strips. Slow trolling with live small “bullets” bonita or kite fishing with live Blue Runners or Thread Herring has also been very productive.
Mahi Mahi Getting Closer to the Edge of the Deeper Reef
Skipjack Tuna Bite & Kingfish are on the Move
Mixed in between the Sailfish and the Mahi Mahi have been quite a few Skipjack Tuna. The Tunas have also been under the birds, especially the Turns. Trolling small feathers have been the most productive method of catching the tunas. Add in a “bird” teaser in front of the feathers and you have just stepped up your game.
Kingfish have also been migrating through our area in as shallow as 40′ of water and out as deep as 200′ of water. About 130′ of water has been the most consistent depth. Most of the fish have been school size fish under about 15 pounds. Trolling planers with Drone spoons or fresh Bonita strips have worked best to target the Kingfish
