One of the most thrilling experiences one can imagine is to go deep sea fishing Miami. There may not be a better location in the world than off of the coast of Miami, Florida to go deep sea fishing. The best fishing grounds are only about a 15 to 20 minute boat ride from the Miami docks and that leaves a lot of time for fishing.
The best thing to do is hire a private boat, with an experienced captain and crew. These experienced professionals are numerous and will do a good job of teaching people how to behave on the boat and how to learn the ins and outs of fishing in these bountiful waters.
Of course the main objective is to catch fish, close behind is the semi-serious occupation of having fun and enjoying oneself. Usually a good sized fishing boat can accommodate 10 to 20 people.
The expertise of the experienced captain and his crew will get the anxious tourist into the fishing waters where the fish are. Knowledge of the currents and the water temperature will give clues to locating and catching the best fish.
Fish that abound in these waters include Dolphin, Tuna, Snapper, Kingfish, Wahoo, Hammerhead sharks, and Sailfish. There is no thrill that can top that of a Sailfish hitting the line and jumping ten feet out of the water in an attempt to shake off the hook. Most of the time the objective of the boat crew is to arrange the trip so that everyone on the boat catches at least one fish.
The boats are all well equipped with an upper deck for sightseeing and a lower deck for fishing. A spacious cabin has a restroom and space for a delicious lunch. Boats can be rented for half a day or a full day of exciting sport fishing.
When deep sea fishing Miami is the order of the day, there are many boats to choose from. Be sure to book your trip well in advance because the demand is great. Nearly any of the boats and tour companies will be able to accommodate visitors in a professional and efficient manner.
One tourist reported an experience of moving out into deeper water after catching a good number of small tuna or “tunny” which are really called trash fish and are used as bait. The captain decided to move out to a 1000 foot deep water location and they quickly spied a bird, which signified fish in the area. A floating palate was spotted and the captain steered over near it and behold a large school of dolphin – not the porpoise kind, but the variety that would be called Mahi Mahi in a restaurant. After spending all the energy they had in pulling in fish, the boat retreated back to Miami with a happy bevy of tourists.
Anyone who has never experienced deep sea fishing Miami needs to make a check mark on their list of things to do this year. There will never be a more exhilarating experience as far as fun and variety of exciting events packed into a single day.
