Miami, Florida - Fall Fishing In Full Swing

1 post in this topic

Fall has finally arrived and along with it some good to very good fishing.<o:p></o:p>

Offshore, the dolphin (mahi-mahi) are migrating south, sailfish areshowing up in better numbers, skipjack tuna are finding the live chum andhitting the kite baits, down deep there are mutton snapper, grouper, andamberjack. You might have to pick your day(s)if you have a weak stomach as cold fronts are now moving through and bringingwindy conditions to our area for a few days. There are usually a few days of calm weather in between the passing ofthe fronts so it’s just a matter of being flexible with you schedule.<o:p></o:p>

Catching live bait (pilchards) has mostly been making a few throwswith the castnet or finding the schools of herring and going to work on themwith sabiki rigs.<o:p></o:p>

Eileen Clark, her daughter Sharon Whitney, and granddaughters OliviaWhitney and Natalie Whitney braved some windy conditions. Their reward was dolphin for both Olivia andNatalie.<o:p></o:p>

Mike and Trevor McCarthy along with Matthew Fitzgerald and ThomasAbrams also had a trip with windy conditions. They saw kite fishing for the first time and immediately took to it asif they’d been kite fishing for years. We saw action with dolphin, skipjack tuna, sailfish, and bottom actionwith bluerunners.<o:p></o:p>

Richard Rusak, Craig Liszt, Jason Harris, and Pat McAleer had a tripthat many anglers dream of. The wind wasblowing hard from the NE giving us seas of 6 – 8 feet. Everyone had strong stomachs and it paid offas we were able to stay out the entire length of the trip. We started our first drift in 300’. Richard caught a bonito. Next we set up in 300’ again and back drifted. In 270’ we caught a dolphin. Followed by an amberjack caught byJason. Then the large school of dolphinshowed up and it was a frenzy. When theschool finally moved on, we had 10 dolphin in the box. As we drifted inside of 200’ we caught agrouper and then a mutton snapper. Another dolphin went into the box. A kingfish and bonito were released along with a small shark. Richard hooked up again to what everyonethought would be another amberjack. Whenthe fish came up, someone said shark and Richard immediately said cobia. The cobia made it into the fish box and atTNT Marine Center it weighed in at 36 pounds.<o:p></o:p>
