What can I say, we’ve had some of the best weather this fall in Miami that I’ve seen in a long time. Typically in October and November the weather patterns are inconsistent, but this years it’s been mostly sunny skies and light winds.
Fall fishing is all about patterns and transition. We have the biggest tides of the year bringing in more water into Miami’s Biscayne Bay and all over South Florida. Bigger tides and more water means fish are going to be more spread out. I’m typically referring to bone fish. Although the bone fishing can still be great, at times the water levels stay so high that your mainly seeing them on the lowest parts of the tides.
Permit fishing still remains hot, and the larger tides bring more permit into Biscayne Bay.
One of my favorite things to do in October and November is bait fish with live bait.
The fall is about the only time of year I look forward to bait fishing, because there is so much bait around because of the fall bait migration.
Everything starts to show up from the beaches off South Beach to South Biscayne Bay. We are catching Tarpon, Snook, Big jacks, Large Mangrove and Mutton snappers. You can pretty much catch anything this time of year.
We just added another boat to our fleet and now we have a custom Billfish Boatworks 24 bay boat. This will be our go to boat for inshore and near shore fishing especially now for Fall and winter. We will be able to accommodate up to four anglers, but three will be best. And offering half and full day trips.
Please check the Charter Info page for pricing on the Skiff and Bay Boat.
For all you die hard fly and spin fisherman, don’t worry fishing off the skiff is still our go to boat for everyday sight fishing or shallow water back country fishing.
