Fishing, Fun And More




South Florida Light Tackle Fishing!

Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report
786-436-2064

Although we never had a real Fall Migration this year we still have been able to put together interesting and at times very exciting fishing charters before the New Year ended and for the first few weeks of the New Year.

In recent weeks we have had some very windy and warm conditions. About every fifth or six day we get a break from the wind and enjoy a day of flat calm conditions. On the calm days we have been able to do more on a fishing charter than we can on the windy days but honestly even on the windy days we have been able to keep things interesting.

Fishing in North Biscayne Bay we have had steady catches of bluefish in the one to four pound range. These fish have been holding in a few areas and have kept my clients busy when they ate our Rapala X Raps or live baits fished under a Cajun Thunder float. Mixed in with the bluefish has been Spanish mackerel, small kingfish, plenty of jacks and when the fish are near the grass flats sea trout from small fish to fish over three pounds have attacked our baits. On a recent trip we had an eight year old hook a tarpon we estimated at 150 pounds. The fish ate a live pilchard fished under a Cajun thunder float and took the eight year old his nine year old buddy, both kid's parents and me an hour and forty five minutes to get the fish to boat side. It was incredible! Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the fish because I was helping all of them fight the fish. We have also had some smaller tarpon and a few nice snook. We have had a few groupers as well.

Offshore when I have been able to fish offshore we have had a few kingfish, dolphins, a day when we had two sailfish, some nice groupers, lots of lesser amberjacks, some nice golden tile fish and black belly rose fish that came out of 600 to 900 feet of water. On that trip we also lost an estimated 150 pound blue marlin.

I have only fished in South Bay a few times this year. With warm water conditions there hasn't been much to fish for in that area.

Fishing out of Flamingo in Florida Bay has been the area that has produced the most action and the best scenery. On every trip out of Flamingo we have seen more birds than I can describe. We even saw a pair of wild Flamingoes feeding on a shallow flat. The fishing has been very good for more fish species that I can describe. Catches have included large numbers of Spanish mackerel, bluefish, cobia, pompano, and lots of jacks, ladyfish to four pounds, bluerunners, and lots of tripletail to 16.75 pounds, snook, redfish, black drum, snappers and sharks.




The Fall Fishing Continues in South Florida

Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

What a crazy way to end a year! Due to tropical storm Sandy and then Hurricane Sandy disrupting the migrations our Fall migration of baitfish and predators that follow the baitfish schools never really materialized. We had some great fishing during the past few months but nothing like it should have been. A few good days of fishing and then a few mediocre days of fishing after the good days has been the norm recently. Now don't let that make you think there isn't something worthy to catch in North & South Bay, offshore of Miami or in Flamingo in Everglades National Park because there is. It's just not like years in the past where huge schools f baitfish attracted lots of mackerel, bluefish, large jacks and other migratory species.

Here's a sampling of what my clients and family have caught within the past few weeks in South Florida.

Fishing with Bill, Phillip and Austin in North Bay during a slow day the guys caught, one nice mackerel, jacks, bluefish and sea trout to 18 inches.

A few days later I took my wife Dana fishing offshore of Haulover Inlet. She caught a nice dolphin, a small shark and we each released a sailfish. We were using live threadfin herrings for bait hooked to a Mustad Ultra Point short shank hook.

On my next trip I found myself in Flamingo with Pat and Jordan. Winds were blowing at 25 at times but we managed four hours of good fishing before the tide changed and the water got real dirty. During that four hour period the guys landed 10 redfish keeping two of the bigger slot fish, released three of the four snook they hooked and released a bunch of trout, ladyfish and jacks. All of the fish were caught on Cajun Thunder floats and shrimp and Hookup lures tipped with shrimp and Gulp baits. We also had a special moment when we came upon two wild Flamingos feeding on a grass flat.

The next day I was In North Bay with Joel, Steve and Steve. Another windy day but the guys hung in there and caught lots of small trout, released two undersize gag groupers plus nine mackerel and one small king mackerel that were released using live shrimp and pilchards.

Back in North Bay with Greg and James for a � day of fishing. This was one of the slow days but the guys did catch mackerel, bluefish, jacks, bluerunners and lots of sea trout.

Today I am with my son Zach who is back from Australia for the Holidays. After catching a bunch of finger mullet and threadfin herring we headed offshore to find things a bit slow. We hit a few wrecks and released a ton of small amberjacks plus a gag grouper. We then went looking for something on the surface and hooked up on some big schoolie dolphins but landed only one in the 8 pound range. We also landed a nice blackfin tuna that went home for sushi and grilled tuna.

Back in North Bay with Jason, Emily and Abe for a half day of fishing. After catching some bait we hit the grass flats and open water and shortly had 20 jack crevalles, six trout and two bluefish.

Today my son Zach and I headed down to Marathon to fish on the party boat Sea King. Zach wanted a big black grouper and I wanted to see him catch one. At the end of the day Zach had lost two big fish that broke his line and released an undersized black grouper. We did manage to get two legal limits of yellowtail snappers to take home for dinner. A nice day bonding with the son!

Back in North Bay with Steve and his wife Cecilia for a half day of fishing. After catching some pilchards we quickly got into the sea trout and caught a bunch on Cajun Thunder floats and on Hookup lures before hitting an open water area that has been holding bluefish and mackerel. We worked this area over for a while and ended up with six nice blues and missed three times that amount before hitting the last spot that yielded a few jacks and a few shots at tarpon in the 60 to 125 pound range.

Back in North Bay with Bill and Gene for a half day of fishing. Flat calm day. After catching plenty of bait and a few sea trout we hit a spot that had some tarpon but resulted in an 8 and 9 pound jack crevalles but no tarpon. We headed offshore and fished a wreck and the guys wore themselves out catching and releasing undersized amberjacks and bonito. Time for one more spot that resulted in lots of strikes but only on Spanish mackerel.

Last trip of the week is with Eddie his son Joel, and his daughters Janine and Erica in North Bay for 4 hours. After catching a bunch of threadfin herring the girls out fished the guys by catching and releasing a bunch of sea trout. In the next spot the hooked three big fish but lost each one to the rocks. A bunch of rainstorms moved in and shortened our trip.

Well that catches us up for now. More trips in the future after a short trip to Gainesville, Fl.

I am often asked when is the best time to fish? Normally I answer with "When you Can". From now till December everyday no matter what the weather is is the best time to fish. Miss a day during the Fall Migration and you may have missed the best fishing of your life!

All of these fish were caught using Key Largo spinning rods, Daiwa Advantage spinning reels, Okuma spinning reels, Shimano spinning reels and Stren and P-Line lines.

What are you waiting for? Pick up the phone and lets go catch some snook!

Fishing in Biscayne Bay continues to be fairly good. Plenty of sea trout have been available for anglers fishing live baits under a Cajun Thunder float and for anglers casting Rapala Skitter Walks, Twitchin Raps and Hookup lures tipped with a Gulp bait. Mixed in with the sea trout have been good numbers of bluefish to four pounds, Spanish mackerel, jacks and ladyfish.

Offshore we have had a few Spanish mackerel, bluefish and jacks near the beaches and offshore of the reefs there have been kingfish, sailfish and dolphins.

Fishing in South Bay has been up and down. Snapper and grouper some jacks, bluefish and a few mackerel.

Flamingo in Everglades National Park has made the change from summer to winter conditions. Spanish mackerel, bluefish, jacks, sea trout, pompano,tripletail, sharks, cobia and a few other species have been biting over the grass flats, hard bottom structures and in the open water. Along the shorelines especially along mangrove shorelines and into the backcountry snook are still being caught but not in the numbers we had seen when water temperatures were higher plus redfish, sheepshead and blackdrum are now eating live shrimp on Hookup lure jig heads and jig heads tipped with a Gulp shrimp.

Florida Fishing Report September 2012

As I sit here and right this fishing report, we are about to get our second cold front of the year. I just looked at my rain gauge and it's showing that I recieved 1" here at my place in the last 24 hours or so. I know there has been more rain up the country, and I know we're all grateful for it.

As for the fishing around here in the Rockport area, I've still been concentrating on mainly redfish due to the slow trout bite. It's not that there are no trout, but there being so many little ones and hard to find keeper sized fish that clients want to keep and take back with them. Until I see that our trout bite has picked up, I will stay with the redfish and occasional black drum that I find in the back lakes & flats.

The reds have been fairly easy for me to limit my clients out by about noon or so. Sometimes it's been earlier than noon, and sometimes a little bit later.

Sizes of the fish have been good with the average fish being in the 25" range give or take, but overall some really good fish. My preferred bait has been mullet, but when I clean the fish for my clients I've noticed just about every kind of bay creature in the stomachs of the reds. I've seen lots of perch, crabs, worms, and shrimp in which they have consumed before I caught them.

I'm excited about tomorrow morning's teal hunt, and it should be a good one if this front "blows" in the birds like it did last week. When I was fishing last Sunday there were teal everywhere and I even saw a few pintails and widgeon. I'm definetly ready to hear a few volleys and get a little change of pace from just fishing alone. While I'm on the subject of birds, the South Zone dove season opens up next weekend and I still have plenty of room for those of you that would like to get in on a dove hunt or maybe even a Cast-N-Blast where we fish in the morning then hunt that afternoon for doves.

Until next time,

Remember when the cards are down and the bet is called, you have your Ace In The Hole.

Redfish In North Biscayne Bay - Fall Fishing Season Has Started
Capt. Alan Sherman
October 5, 2011
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

Before I start my new fishing update report I must let you know about the four redfish that we have caught in North Biscayne Bay in the last two months. These fish were not big being 17 to 20 inches but I haven't caught or a client of mine hasn't caught a redfish in North Biscayne Bay for over 20 years. I know that people do catch them in the Bay because they report it to me on occasions but even though I knew they were being caught we hadn't caught them until now. All were caught on live pilchards fished under a Cajun Thunder float. I suspect that it was the hard rains that we had months ago that pushed them out of the most brackish areas that I believe they hold in to areas that I fish in North Biscayne Bay. I am very excited about catching these fish in North Biscayne Bay because I have always thought that there should be large populations in the Bay especially up in the Greynolds Park area where the waters are normally more brackish and oysters live. Of the four reds caught three were caught by one angler on two different trips in two different spots and the other one was caught by an angler that knew the other angler.

Pat_n_Redfish_4.jpgPat And Redfish

The first cold front of 2011's fall season arrived last week dropping water temperatures here in South Florida three or four degrees. That may not sound like a lot to most people but add a few more degrees to that number and that is what the migratory fish felt further up the coast striking off an alarm in their small brains and making their tails move fast in a southerly direction that is towards South Florida. This happens every year at about this time starting the beginning of the Fall Migration that I for one am always looking forward to. For weeks schools of large silver and black mullet have been holding in North Biscayne Bay and now they have schools of finger mullet and pilchards joining them. Schools of Spanish sardines will be here soon and as of this week schools of flying fish are thick offshore. Feeding on the bay baitfish schools have been snook, tarpon, barracudas, small jacks, ladyfish, sea trout, snappers and a few bluefish.

Offshore we have seen a few nice kingfish runs, quite a few small wahoos, and some blackfin and skip jack tuna, cero mackerel, bonitos, dolphins and mutton snappers. All of this has made for some pretty good fishing in comfortable temperatures but this is only the start! The real fishing hasn't started yet! That will happen when large schools of Spanish mackerel, bluefish, pompano, big ladyfish and large jacks move into the bay and offshore the big kingfish schools, blackfin tuna, dolphins and sailfish start feeding on the sardines and flying fish and we are just a few days or weeks from that happening.

Fishing in South Bay is about a month away unless the weather gets cold real fast. When the temperatures are right we will be getting a nice assortment of groupers, snappers, bluefish, porgies, Spanish mackerel, jacks and a few pompano.

I haven't had many requests for fishing Flamingo but this is the time to be there. With water temperatures dropping but still warm snook, redfish, tarpon and many other species will be hungry and available all day.

All of the action that we have had recently has come on free lined pilchards hooked to a 1/0 short shank or long shank Mustad Ultra Point hook or with Cajun Thunder floats and live pilchards and on Rapala X Raps, Flat Raps, Clackin Minnows, Skitter Walks, Sub Walks and Twitchin Raps and on Hookup lures tipped with a Trigger X bait or a Gulp bait. Offshore we have been hooking our live baits to a Gerry Rig Live Bait Clip. This clip doesn't injure the bait keeping it frisky for a long time.

Check out the October Issue of Florida Sportsman magazine to see my article on Tripletail fishing on page 14.

My new boat has 25 hours on it and is ready to go. Everything new and working the way it's supposed to. The Yamaha SHO 250 Four Stroke is purring away and the 22' Pathfinder is sliding through the water smoother than ever. My new Frigid Rigid cooler is in place and my new Tempress seats are fastened in tight. The Minn Kota Talon is quiet and has given me a full extra foot of anchoring depth. My new Minn Kota I-Pilot trolling motor is quiet as well and the GPS lets me do so many things it is really amazing. I am getting better with my new Humminbird 1197c SI.

I have open dates for the next month so give me a call and let's go catch some big trout, snook, tarpon, redfish, jacks, ladyfish, mackerel, kingfish, dolphins and tunas.

Give me a call at 786-436-2064 or e-mail me at shermana@bellsouth.net.

Rick Berry of Key Largo Rods (www.keylargorods.com) recently got in a new shipment of jigging rods. There model numbers are 843 and 844. These are 7 foot spinning rods with a lot of beef that will easily handle 12 to 30 and 15 to 40 pound braided line and a one to two ounce vertical jig. I have been using them for live bait fishing for snook, tarpon, sailfish, bonitos and dolphins and am very excited about the strength and feel of these new rods. I can't wait to give them a shot on snapper and grouper on the reefs! Check out the Key Largo Rods web site or give the shop a call and have a few made up.

Want to stay cool and look like you belong on the water? Than gear up with some Columbia Sportswear! For starters slip on a pair of cool fitting and quick drying Aruba III Zip Off Pants. They are so light you won't even know you're wearing them and they quickly turn into shorts if you feel the need. Find yourself in Flamingo in Everglades National Park where at times bugs can be a problem then add The Bug Shield long sleeve shirt that has the new Insect Blocker technology that keeps six-legged pests at bay and it offers Omni-Shade UPF 40 sun protection, and Omni-Wick advanced evaporation technology that keeps you cool, dry, and collected - leaving you free to focus on the adventure at hand. And then last but not least slip on a pair of Omni Free gloves and neck-buff that is outfitted with a UPF 30 sun protection enough sun protection to get the Skin Cancer Foundation's seal of recommendation.

Inshore Fishing in North Biscayne Bay is Red Hot!
Capt. Alan Sherman
September 17, 2011
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

2012_Get_Em.jpgGet Em Sportfishing

As I sit in front of my computer writing this fishing update in the middle of Biscayne Bay from Dumfoundling Bay south to Ocean Reef schools of medium to large silver and black mullet have settled into South Florida after being pushed into our region a little early by Hurricane Irene. The first schools of finger mullet are starting to arrive as well. During a normal late summer and the beginning of Fall these baitfish schools arrive during the last week of September or during the whole month of October but these mullet schools are ahead of schedule and have been in the Bay for at least two weeks attracting the attention of the only fish in the Bay that can eat them. And that would be tarpon of all sizes, snook, jack crevalles and large sea trout and barracudas. Soon schools of small and medium sized bluefish, large jacks, sharks and some huge tarpon and monster ladyfish will join in on the feeding frenzy. As water temperatures cool down further north pilchards, Spanish sardines and threadfin herring will follow the mullet schools and that is when our fishing in South Florida will really take off. Read further and I will explain!

images/Alexander_n_trout_2.jpgAlexander And Trout

In North Biscayne Bay tarpon from 10 pound fish to tarpon of over 100 pounds are feeding at times throughout the day on the mullet schools. A few big snook that have finished spawning are feeding right alongside of the tarpon. Sea trout, snappers, ladyfish and barracudas are eating small summer baitfish that has been holding over the grass flats. Bluefish and even a few pompano have been around these baitfish schools as well. Throwing Rapala Clackin Minnows, Rapala X Raps, Skitter Walks and Sub Walks have been scoring on all of these fish when fished along the edges and over the tops of the shallow grass flats. Casting live threadfin herring, pilchards and mullet and the Rapala plugs has helped us score on lots of tarpon strikes but all of the fish that ate our baits including our plugs spit the hooks on the jump or broke off except for the 39 inch 16 pound snook that I released on a live threadfin herring cast up into a few inches of water where what we thought was a tarpon feeding on mullet but obviously it turned out to be that snook. This fishing will only get better when the schools of bluefish, mackerels and big jacks arrive.

images/Alexander_n_Ladyfish.jpgAlexander And Ladyfish

Offshore fishing has been a bit disappointing though. But this can change overnight! When the schools of baitfish start their big push southward schools of bluefish, Spanish mackerel, pompano, big jack crevalles, large ladyfish, big tarpon, snook and sharks will be right behind them. Then as some of these baitfish schools move further offshore the kingfish schools, sailfish, bonitos and blackfin tuna and of course dolphins will be right there waiting for them. This is some of the most exciting fishing will see all year. Grab your casting gear and the plugs and artificial lures you have been hoarding and cast these lures along the edges of the feeding frenzies taking place along the beaches and offshore under the birds and hang on.

images/Dolphin_n_Skitter_Walk.jpgDolphin And Skitter Walk

Fishing in Flamingo is on fire as well. Hit the right spot on the right tide and redfish, snook, tarpon, jacks, snapper, ladyfish and sharks are there waiting for you. Add to that tripletail, sea trout, bluefish and Spanish mackerel and you have a full day of hot fishing.

I sold my 2008 Pathfinder last week and now have my new 2012 Pathfinder 22' Tournament XL with a 2012 Yamaha VMAX SHO 250 Four Stroke outboard. The new Get Em is equipped with a Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor and I Pilot trolling motor and a Humminbird side scan depth recorder. The boat has all of the added options of my last boat and is trailered by a new Continental trailer. The new trolling motor has added all kinds of options to my fishing and the Talon has given me an extra foot of anchoring depth. The Humminbird recorder has so many features it will take me a few weeks to figure it out.

These are 7 foot spinning rods with a lot of beef that will easily handle 12 to 30 and 15 to 40 pound braided line and a one to two ounce vertical jig. I have been using them for live bait fishing for snook, tarpon, sailfish, bonitos and dolphins and am very excited about the strength and feel of these new rods. I can't wait to give them a shot on snapper and grouper on the reefs! Check out the Key Largo Rods web site or give the shop a call and have a few made up.

Want to stay cool and look like you belong on the water? Than gear up with some Columbia Sportswear! For starters slip on a pair of cool fitting and quick drying Aruba III Zip Off Pants. They are so light you won't even know you're wearing them and they quickly turn into shorts if you feel the need. Find yourself in Flamingo in Everglades National Park where at times bugs can be a problem then add The Bug Shield long sleeve shirt that has the new Insect Blocker technology that keeps six-legged pests at bay and it offers Omni-Shade UPF 40 sun protection, and Omni-Wick advanced evaporation technology that keeps you cool, dry, and collected - leaving you free to focus on the adventure at hand. And then last but not least slip on a pair of Omni Free gloves and neck-buff that is outfitted with a UPF 30 sun protection enough sun protection to get the Skin Cancer Foundation's seal of recommendation.

I have been wearing a lot of Columbia Sports Wear on my fishing charters and the new Blood & Guts shirts are amazing. I have had mackerel, cobia and snook just splatter me with blood and one good washing and the shirts are as good as new. Check out their web site at www.columbia.com

Miami Fishing Forecast

I expect the fishing to be pretty consistent for the next three or four months with lots of SEA TROUT, JACK CREVALLES, LADYFISH, BARRACUDAS, SNOOK, TARPON in NORTH BISCAYNE BAY and OFFSHORE of MIAMI KINGFISH SAILFISH and DOLPHINS available on the calmer days and in FLAMINGO in EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK will have a huge amount of wildlife like the WHITE PELICANS, ROSEATTE SPOONBILLS, SKIMMER BIRDS,GULLS, OSPREYS, EAGLES, TERNS, EGRETS, HERONS, ALLIGATORS, CROCODILES, BOTTLE NOSED DOLPHINS, MANATTEES, SHARKS and TURTLES and of course the wide variety of fish that migrate into FLORIDA BAY and the GULF waters during the cooler months of the year. SNOOK, TARPON, REDFISH, SEA TROUT, SHEEPSHEAD, TRIIPLETAIL, BLACK DRUM, SNAPPER, GOLIATH AND GAG GROUPER, POMOPANO, COBIA, MACKEREL, PERMITS, BLUEFISH and I'm sure I am leaving a few other fish species out will be available to all anglers at one time or another throughout the rest of the Summer.
