Why fish with Miami Inshore fishing guides!
At Miami Beach Fishing Guides we have the experience of being a Biscayne Bay fishing guide for over 30 years that will bring you great success. As we explained above, there are so many different species of fish and so many different ways to fish for them. For this reason, it turely makes fishing the area so much fun all year long.
As Miami inshore fishing guides, there are always the big four species to chase – Snook, Tarpon, Trout, and Permit. If an angler is lucky enough to get all three of the four in one day, this is called a Saltwater Inshore Slam. We have guided many anglers to slams, but at the end of the day, it is always about fishing, the time on the water, the hunt, as well as the ones that got away. It does not matter what fish you actually catch, they are all just fun to catch.
Brief description of Miami species
As Miami inshore Biscayne Bay fishing guides we try to start with the customers’ favorite species, which is some times hard because to have to realize most all these species are seasonal. There is a lot of anglers that like catching strong fighting fish that will jump. Who doesn’t right….lol. The photos of them when they jump or roll, although this is not an easy thing to do are photos you will show for a lifetime.
We can get Tarpon year-round, but most of the tarpon fishing in Biscayne Bay is from December to July, with the best fishing around April to June. Most of the tarpon will range from sixty to one hundred pounds. Depending on the time of the year when fishing for tarpon, we will use live bait and artificial lures this is always included in the price of a fishing charter.
The bait they prefer is mullet, shrimp, and crabs, but tarpon also will take artificial in certain situations. Know that you will likely have a lot more chances to hook a Tarpon, then to the land one, it’s just the nature of the species. If you are lucky enough land a tarpon, you will remember that experience for the rest of your life.
Miami Biscayne Bay top species
Overwelomly the most popular fishing in Biscayne Bay is Sea Trout fishing, they are a blast to catch for the whole family and taste great. Miami inshore fishing guides fish mainly in Biscayne Bay when fishing for these, always overlooking downtown and the Miami Heat arena. The Trout run large here and will average three to five pounds, with several coming over the side of the boat.
The largest Trout are caught starting in March and continue through June. We can almost always catch them year-round, bye catches are shark, snapper and much other fun fish to catch for the entire family.
Shrimp is the bait of choice when fishing for Trout. Shrimp is the top bait for them, but most of the year we catch them on artificial lures like Glup by Berkely. They work very well and it doesn’t take a lot of skill to do it. When you hook a Trout, there are not fun and have big teeth. After a day of Trout fishing, you will have bags of filets to go home and cook. We clean all the fin for at the dock at the end of the trip.
