Miami fishing report : Hogfish.

Please see our SanibelCaptivaFort MyersSeashell & Shelling and Cuban Fishing sites for charter photos from our other captains, additional fishing and shelling reports, and musings on fishing in Cuba one of these days!

Monday, November 30, 2015, Florida Fishing Report, Miami Fishing: hogfish, just offshore;  we report on Miami inshore and offshore fishing. We’re mostly focused on fishing Miami’s channels, grass flats, passes, oyster bars, mangroves and near shore fishing, but we’ll also give you an update on deep sea fishing if a Captain sends us a report!

We’re big advocates of catch and release, particularly for snook, but pretty much for most species.  Only take what you are going to eat, and a lot of fish are better off as sport fish, even if they are in season.  Our motto is let ‘em get bigger and catch ‘em again!

Consistent with the near shore fishing theme, we post on fishing for redfish, snook, sea trout, pompano, snapper, grouper, ladyfish, Spanish mackerel, hogfish and other game fish!

We also report on going after bigger fish, including bull sharks, hammerhead sharks, lemon sharks, sandbar sharks, spinner sharks and black tip and black nose sharks. We’re very strong proponents of catching and releasing sharks unharmed.

Again, unless you are going to eat a fish that is in season and of the appropriate size, we say let ‘em go to get bigger, have some fun and catch ‘em again another day!

At the right time of the year, we also post on tarpon, cobia and king mackerel when they are running!

Miami is increasingly one of the capitals of the Caribbean and Latin America, and the culture and fishing is some of the best in the world!  Whether you’re a serious fisherman or woman or a family looking for a great adventure, you are going to like Miami fishing!

Monday, November 30, 2015, Florida Fishing Report, Miami Fishing: hogfish, on structure; daily Miami Fishing Report & Info On Miami Fishing Charters; Fishing Trips For Families & Children, As Well As Serious Sport Fishermen and Fisherwomen!

We’re just getting started in Miami, but we’re looking forward to reporting on Miami fishing!

If you are a local fishing guide/captain and would like to submit photos and reports, please let us know.  All are welcome.  You can reach us @ FloridaFishingCharterReport@gmail.com.

Happy fishing!

Gag grouper recreational harvest closes in most Gulf waters in early December.

FWC issued the following release.

“Gag grouper will close for recreational harvest in most Gulf of Mexico state waters Dec. 4, with the last day of harvest being Dec. 3. All Gulf federal waters will close Dec. 3, with the last day of harvest being Dec. 2.

State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylor counties were open from April 1 through June 30 and were not open during the July 1 through Dec. 3 season. Monroe County is also excluded from the July 1 through Dec. 3 season because it follows Atlantic rules for gag grouper.

The FWC manages marine fish from the shore to 9 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico.”
