What You Can Expect:

Half day charters are typically 4 hours long and are perfect when fishing youngsters, people who are new to the sport, or those with busy schedules. The beauty of fishing off of South Florida’s coast is that the reef is typically three miles or less from the beach. We will always give you an honest opinion on whether half day charters will give you enough time to catch what you are after. Typically summertime is the one time of the year that half days are very difficult to produce fish. This is primarily because of the distance offshore that you have to travel to find dolphin or mahi. The one exception to this is, in the summertime we can target yellowtail snappers or vermillion snappers in slightly deeper water on a half day trip.

3/4 Day Fishing Charters

Three quarter day is usually a six hour trip. This is usually enough time to catch dolphin if they are not too far offshore in the summertime. A three-quarter day is a very good alternative to a day trip in the fall, winter and spring when fishing for sailfish king fish etc. The extra 2 hours does not sound like much but makes a big difference when we are trying to find the best areas along the reef to catch these species.

In the month of April May and June we have many people who are interested in fishing the late afternoon three-quarter from 12 or 1 o’clock to nearly dark. During these three months we have many late afternoons that are fantastic for black fin tuna in the 20 to 30 pound range kingfish and sailfish. All of that and enjoy the beautiful sunset on the way in!

Full Day Fishing Charters

Full days typically run 8 hours and are by far on our most successful trips the cost is typically 50% more than a half day so it is very effective financially to book full days. One of the challenges when heading offshore fishing the reef is the changing Gulfstream current. I have seen many days where the conditions are phenomenal in the afternoon only to return to that area the next morning and the conditions have reversed from blue water and north current to green water and no current or south current. Not to say that we never catch fish in those conditions, but they are generally not as productive. A full day gives us is the chance to move around and find the best conditions available and also to share with you several types of fishing in a day.

On a typical day we will fish for several types of fish. Some of the techniques we use are trolling, kite trolling, deep dropping, bottom fishing, kite fishing, flatlining live baits, light tackle snapper fishing, patch reef fishing, cobia fishing (sight fishing), and swordfishing offshore. As you can see the list is long and we want to share with you as many of these experiences as possible within reason.

This is what makes fishing in South Florida so great in the course of a year we can catch most of the species that live in deep water off the Florida coast. You never know when you’re going to see next, something as rare as a marlin, yellowfin tuna, spearfish, mako or white sharks, bluefin tuna, even whale sharks whales, and manta rays.

Tarpon and Snook Fishing Charters

Tarpon and snook fishing is typically a four hour trip usually accomplished in our open fisherman / Miss Cheyenne. We typically fish around Miami’s Government Cut, the beaches north and south of that channel as well as several bridges. Tarpon fishing generally takes place in the late afternoon. You get to enjoy the beautiful sunset hopefully watching tarpon roll in the area and on the end of your line. They are beautiful acrobatic and extremely powerful fish. You will never forget the day you catch your first one. Of course we practice catch and release with these fish and can usually accomplish and nice picture with the fish alongside the boat. On occasion we catch other fish while we are tarpon fishing like snook, snappers, groupers, permit, ladyfish and Jack Crevalles.

Swordfishing Charters

Swordfishing is usually an 8 or 12 hour trip. Swordfishing usually occurs about 20 miles offshore. We have the option of South Florida of either Fishing in the daytime or at night.

When we fish in the daytime we are equipped with a combination hand crank OR electric reel in one. The beauty of this tackle is that we can remove the motor and give you the experience of a true hand cranked swordfish in the daytime. If we want to wind the weight to the surface we simply attach the motor with two push pins and we are in business – easy living! We have caught fish other than swordfish while doing this the most common is mahi followed by an occasional sailfish or wahoo and even a 400 pound blue marlin.

Nighttime swordfishing involves drifting with four or five lines generally on Penn 50 lb tackle. We use a float and weight attached at various depths in the water. We do catch fish other than swordfish at night. We have caught oil fish, Pomfret, mako sharks and even a Spearfish. We definitely prefer calm weather for both day and night time swordfishing. That allows us to see what is sometimes a very subtle bite on the rod tip.

Sailfish and Tarpon Combo

Sailfish and tarpon are two of the most sought after sportfish species in South Florida. The power and aerial acrobatic displays of both these fish make for a challenging fight that you won’t soon forget. A typical sailfish/tarpon combo charter lasts between 8-12 hours. The tarpon fishing is done nearshore, typically in one of the passes, namely in Government Cut. They can also be targeted under bridges and just off the beach. The lowlight conditions of sunrise and sunset are the predominant feeding times for these fish, and thus the best time to target them. Additionally, the tide stages in the passes plays another crucial factor in when and where to target tarpon. Typically tarpon will look to feed on bait that flows out of the pass during the ebb or outgoing tides. On the other hand, sailfish will bite during all hours of the day, and tides are not nearly as significant when compared to the tarpon. We consider these factors to schedule custom trip times that will increase the odds of catching both species. Please contact us for further discussion prior to scheduling.

12 Hour Extended “Iron Man” Charter

The 12 hour Extended “Iron Man” Charter is the longest and most comprehensive charter we offer. There are no limitations to what species we can target. If you’re looking to get the full fishing experience that Miami has to offer, this then is the charter for you. Mahi, marlin, swordfish, sailfish, snapper, grouper, wahoo, mackerel, and tarpon; they’re all going to be targeted on this trip. The 12 hour trip allows enough time to make a significant effort to target all of these species, and the freedom to change locations in order to find them. No expense will be spared to employ the wide variety of fishing tactics that is necessary for each of these different species.

Rental Requirements

Frequently Asked Question

What do I need to bring on board with me for my day of fishing?

You will need to bring whatever you want to eat or drink including some water. We usually have some drinks and snacks on board but that depends on how hungry and thirsty the previous group was. We provide built in coolers and ice, so plan on leaving your coolers in your vehicle. Bring all of your food and drinks in bags if possible. We recommend that you bring sunblock, hat, polarized sunglasses and boat shoes or sandals.

Can I keep the fish I catch?

All legal sized, edible fish are yours to keep. The crew will clean as many of the fish as time allows at no additional charge beyond the amount that you tip them. Sometimes, for instance, if we have two half day trips back to back they are obligated to stay on schedule for the next trip. If you have a lot of fish that you want cleaned, it might be wise to come in a few minutes early to allow the crew ample time to clean enough for you. The crew does not expect, but appreciates any extra fish to take home for their family and friends if there is enough to go around.

Another great feature of our location is being backed up to Monty’s Restaurant. They have agreed to cook your fresh catch for a $7 charge, you add the side dishes. The only thing they require is that you sign a release form since we are providing the product to cook. Many people take advantage of this after their day on the water. There’s nothing like eating the fish you caught the same day you caught it!

What about rough weather?

Miami’s geography offers some shelter from most winds but there will be some days that are just too rough to be comfortable or target the fish that you are after. In that case a full refund will be given, but weather calls are ultimately made by Ray or the captain.

What about safety equipment and your qualifications?

Our boat is fully equipped with all required safety gear and our crews are extremely qualified to handle the conditions that we normally encounter. All boats are equipped with EPIRB devices.

Do I need to bring my own equipment?

You are welcome to bring your own but I do have Penn Fishing Tackle gear from 12 lb test to 80 lb test in both spin and conventional tackle.

Is rain gear necessary?

We usually have some on board but it’s always a good idea to be prepared with your own.

Are alcoholic beverages permitted?

Yes…It’s your charter – I just ask that you drink responsibly. In the event that someone overindulges, we reserve the right to take you back to the dock but the charter fee will be due in full. This is for their safety and the safety of others on the boat. I cannot recall ever having to do that but I’m just putting it in here to keep you guys on your best behavior.

Are bait and licenses provided?

We provide the dead bait, chum and the fishing licenses for everyone on board. We typically catch our own live bait on the way out. It usually takes about a half hour to do this and gives everyone who participates a little orientation to the tackle and is generally a fun part of the trip. We can also make arrangements to order live bait to eliminate the need to catch our own. 

What is your cancellation policy?

Remember, we value you as a customer and want you to have every reason to fish with us in the future and recommend us to others. If the trip is canceled by the captain (weather, mechanical, sickness) you will receive your money back. Again, we are concerned about your safety And enjoyment so we will look at several sources of weather reports and predictions before making that decision, but ultimately, only the captain makes the call on cancelling for bad weather. If you cancel more than 3 days prior to the trip, you will receive a full refund.

Please understand that he is aware of factors that many don’t consider like wind direction in relation to landmass as well as water current velocity and direction in relation to the wind direction. Where we are fishing, these factors greatly affect sea conditions.
