Florida’s Most Sought after fish Tarpon and Snook are Here! And the bite is on the first week of February on the new moon cycle. here is your Miami tarpon fishing report.

The annual shrimp run is happening right now although it hasn’t seemed to peak yet here in Biscayne Bay, Miami. I was speaking to one of the Shrimp Fisherman and he is catching his in the Keys as they have had good numbers down there.The water temp inside Biscayne Bay has been hovering around 75 degrees so it’s a little warmer than last year at 73 degrees.The Tarpon have been here and are filling in with big numbers showing up my sounder.  As long as the water stay this temperature the fishing should remain strong.


The Miami Tarpon fishing has been exciting with nice 60-100lb fish the norm This time of year fishing around inlets and bridges. We did hook into a giant Tarpon the other night with a private guest of an estimated 110lb This fish was a monster and took a Hogy Lure. The fight was probably about 40 mins long until we could get the fish boat side to remove the lure and take a photo before reviving it and letting it swim away.
The bite has been strong a off today we are up to hooked Tarpon number 45 for the year.  

I had a group of Tarpon Club members come over from Fort Myers and request 60lb or larger fish. Based on the conditions and tide I picked a had full of locations around Miami tht have proven strong for Tarpon of that size and we Were not disappointed as we went 2-5 on fish from 60-90lb

There have been a lot of sharks in the area so our anglers are doing there best to get the fish in quick and revive them before setting them off.

Snook Season and snook fishing in Miami is open and we got a very nice fish that we released. We did run into a few very small fish around the cut using a shrimp tipped Jig head.


I recently made an appearance on the Jeff Maggio Triple Live show. Jeff, a long term fishing guide in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, introduced me and gave a fun interview. I look forward to working with Jeff in the future and maybe coming back at some time on the Show. The Link can be found on m Face book Page or below



The poonchaser shirt that I wore on the turned out to be a hit on the Jeff Maggio show as I received a bunch of comments on that.  I just Put the 2019 updated jumping Tarpon Logo on the back and they are ready again and available for purchase in my online shop. More sizes are available up to 3xl.

Stay Tuned to Fly and Fish tv for the latest action and of course Fly and Fish .com with Capt.. Fraser Miami Tarpon Fishing this week is fully booked and should be spectacular.
