At the bottom of Florida, Miami is a world-class fishing destination with great deep sea excursions and plenty of sunny days. Massive migrations in the summer months, and premier offshore and inshore fishing, make this one of the easier places in the world to reel one in.

Where To Fish in Miami

One of the best ways  to experience the local bounty is to get out on a half-or-full day charter. Blue-Fin Charters has everything you need with full day, half day, and overnight fishing trips. These guys know all of the spots to find all of Miami’s best local fish.

In addition to charters, you can also find peaceful spots along the coast to take a seat and cast a line:

South Pointe Park Pier

Just a ten-minute walk from the Winter Haven Hotel, the South Pointe Park Pier is a popular local fishing spot, where you’re likely to find some snapper, or Spanish Mackerel. Located on a coastal park, it’s one of the city’s most beautiful hangouts.

Newport Fishing Pier

This half-mile pier is located about ten miles north of The Winter Haven Hotel at Sunny Isles Beach. The newly renovated space is about as quiet and peaceful as it gets in South Florida, and has been a bountiful fishing destination for decades.

Oleta River State Park

Located west of Sunny Isle beach, Oleta River State Park is one of the area’s best destinations for wildlife, hikes, and fishing. Head here to catch fresh snook, pompano, and redfish.
