Miami, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
East of Angelfish Creek
J Lopez

Its been a few weeks since my last fishing report. In South Florida we are starting spring fishing patterns. There are still sailfish being caught inside 300 feet. Along with these sailfish are KingFish pushing north. The kingfish this time of year tend to be a little bigger so it is very possible to catch 20+ lb fish on any given day. What most people are waiting for is Spring/Summer migration of Dolphin (aka Mahi-Mahi).

Today i had the great pleasure of fishing with my old friend Wilbert Ramirez of Homestead. He was interested in having a relaxing day offshore searching for dolphin. We where able to find some nice peanuts in 800 feet of water under a Frigate Bird. These fish kept us busy for a good hour. On the way in we where greeted by our left outrigger going off and Mr. Ramirez was able to bring on board the biggest dolphin of his life. A nice 40 lb Bull. At the docks there was a good sign of more dolphin with a lot of people bringing in some nice gaffers to the cleaning table. .
