Miami, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
North Miami

We've been getting out all summer long and putting our clients on some really nice fish. we've been trolling the reef between 135 and 200 feet of water and it's been very consistent with a good Bonita and wahoo bite and some nice sails are showing up also.

We've been using really fresh bait which is key to get the bite.

The day before we head out Captain Sheldon Hubbard first mate of the sea cross will rig all the Baits.

We're stripping out fresh Bonita strips and fresh naked ballyhoos.

Will start the fishing trip by trolling over the reef picking up a few king fish bonitos and Wahoo's.

Over the last three weeks we have had a good sailfish bite with almost every trip having shots at these fish so come on down to Miami beach and go do some fishing today!
