Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 17, 2006
Having the Gulf Stream just two miles off the Miami coastline means that the sport fisherman can find a bounty of different types of fish nearby. The astounding variety available makes Miami fishing among the best in the world.
For instance, “kite fishing,” a South Florida tournament specialty, uses live bait dangling from a suspended kite to fish for sailfish, king mackerel, or other big game fish. Kite fishing throughout the year in these warm waters can lead to the catch of a lifetime, and is one of the most sought after Miami fishing experiences. In addition, there is fabulous reef fishing, bottom fishing, and drift fishing. The many natural and artificial reefs in these waters are some of the best homes for real fighters like Amberjack, Grouper, Snapper, and Cobia.
South Florida boasts some of the best swordfish action found anywhere. These fish can run into the hundreds of pounds and test any angler’s skills. Hammerhead, tiger, and bull sharks are among the many species that are common just a few miles out. The Miami fishing scene offers both daytime and nighttime opportunities to do battle with these toothy man eaters.
For light tackle action, bonefish, tarpon, snook, and permit can be caught on the pristine flats and mangrove shorelines within sight of downtown Miami, where many local and world records have been set.
Taking advantage of this abundance of sport fishing adventures is best done with a launch from a central location. The less travel time it takes to reach the best fishing grounds, the more actual fishing time there is to enjoy.
For instance, Pier 5 Fishing Charters, the premiere provider of Miami fishing charter services, features this type of “one stop” access to all of these fishing adventures in the waters close by its Bayside Market location. Pier 5 arranges trips for reef fishing, bottom fishing, drift fishing, kite fishing, or night fishing. Known for over thirty years for its customized charters, Pier 5 supplies everything needed for charters day and night, including bait, tackle, and fishing licenses. Staffed by one of the most experienced crews in South Florida, all types of tackle are available, from Ultra Light to Big Game. Pier 5 also refers clients who want their charter trip catered, enabling a full day on the water with all needs met.
With that kind of commitment to making the most of a Miami fishing trip, a charter company can assure maximum time on the water in tested fishing grounds, leaving the fisherman free to do nothing but enjoy the day and marvel at the variety.
