If you've ever wondered when is the best time to fish South Florida, that time is now. Spring is great for two reasons, variety and size. Not only do we have many different species moving through the area but we also have a lot of large fish mixed in.
Some of them include: sailfish, blackfin tuna, kingfish, mahi, cobia, and bottom dwellers like snapper, grouper, and amberjack. Most of these fish are caught using various types live bait. Fishing methods include kite fishing, drifting, slow trolling, and deep dropping over wrecks.
Another important fact is that grouper season opens May 1st. The season has been closed for four months and the fish have had a chance to get comfortable. We've been catching and releasing a few very nice ones.
Also worth mentioning, is that blackfin tuna have arrived and being caught with good regularity. Although tuna can be caught at any time of the day, they usually bite best late in the day especially as the sun begins to set. Most of the blackfins will be in the 20-30 pound range.
As you can see, now is a great time to get out on the water. If you're thinking about booking a trip do yourself a favor and don't wait. I have no days left in April and May is beginning to fill up.
