South Beach Fishing Charters

Fishing charters are a great way to experience fishing with a captain out on the water. These charters guarantee you a higher chance of catching a fish, as well, since these fishermen know the best spots to find fish. There are many different types of charters to choose from, including half day or full day excursions and night fishing through Biscayne Bay’s flats. Smaller fishing charters are usually most expensive because you have more personalized attention with a group of under 10 people; there are other charters on larger vessels, that cost a lot less, but you’re fishing alongside 100 or so other people. Bait, tackle, and equipment are included in most fishing charter experiences. There are dozens of fishing charter captains in the Miami water, but here are a few to check out: Top Gun Fishing Charters, Outcast Sportsfishing, and Treasure Fleet.
