Miami, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Miami Beach & the Haulover Area

The Spring time Dolphin bite is on! We on the Spellbound are seeing some 30lb+ bulls and a few 20lb+ cows mixed in with a lot of nice school fish. Kite fishing a little deep of the Sailfish are producing some of the best fish. Water depth of 200' to over 450' has been the hot zone. Look for current, water quality, weeds, birds & other sighs of life.

Keep your eyes peeled for tailing Sails, they will appear under your kite baits while waiting for that slammer Dolphin. We are also seeing some 25lb+ Black Fin Tuna & Big Hammer Head shark out in the same depth.

Lets go fishing, you can find us at on the All New 57' Spellbound. Lets go catch a big Dolphin while they are out on the rip....

Bio: My first paid fishing job was at the age of 13 as a second mate on the New Popeye, an 85 foot \"party fishing boat\". Now at 44, I can honestly say that I have been fishing professionally for more than 27 years. I worked charter fishing boats throughout college in New Orleans. I then began grad school in Miami, first as a mate, then as a captain on charter boats. At that time I also spent a lot of time tournament fishing, both in the Gulf of Mexico (out of New Orleans) in the Bahamas, and out of Miami . My first charter boat was a 24foot Topaz \"Sweet Gina\". As an avid fisherman my most memorable job fishing came at the the age of 21. With a new 100ton U.S.C.G. captains license in my hand, I landed a job as captain of a 90 foot \"party\" fishing boat which ran three-day, and two-day long-range fishing trips, deep in the Bahamas. I stayed on that boat for seven seasons, and had the opportunity to catch just about very great fish available in the Gulf Stream. From a 9lb Yellow tail Snapper to a 90lb Black grouper, a 600+lbs Giant Blue Fin Tuna, to an 800+lbs Blue Marlin. I spent most winters running charter fishing boats and commercial fishing in Miami. My second boat was a partnership in a 44 Striker named, A Quit All. After running that boat for more than four years out of the Haulover Park Marina, I acquired sole ownership of my first full size charter fishing boat the Spellbound My greatest accomplishments are some tournament wins like the first place fun fish boat in the Miami Billfish Tournament. Although possessing a few I.G.F.A. records, METT Tournament wins, and guiding customers to their own I.G.F.A. records, my favorite accomplishment was the discovery of a new species of Tile Fish. Experiencing the process of the research, and realization I had received the great honor of discovering an unknown fish. The icing on the cake was when I was given the privilege to name it (Bahama Tiger Tile).
