Mahi-Mahi~ Dolphin Tuna~ Wahoo~ Grouper
We suggest a full day charter for dolphin or mahi-mahi fishing
since we are fishing for the dolphin farther off the reef.
A typical day starts with catching live bait about 3 ½ miles offshore.
From there, we head offshore and fish for tuna at the famous Islamorada Hump.
We then set out in search of dolphin on the troll. Many days we will limit out on dolphin, which is 10 per person. In this case and depending on time, we also may do reef fishing.
Yellow Tail & Mutton Snapper
The trips are 1/2 ,3/4 or full days.
Again, the day starts with catching live bait about 3 ½ miles offshore.
We take a short cruise to one of many fishing spots on the edge of the reef, we anchor up and fish with light tackle for yellow tail and mutton snapper.
We also have an opportunity for shark, grouper and many other species.
This trip is a 12-hour extreme trip.
The day starts with getting live bait from one of our bait spots.
From there, we head offshore up to 30 miles. Once we get to the ledge, (1500 to 2000 feet of water) we have opportunities for dolphin, tuna & wahoo.
We will bottom drop in drifts of 30 min to an hour.
A typical full day sailfish fishing trip starts out with catching live bait about 3 ½ miles offshore.
At that point, we go to one of five hot fishing grounds and fish for sailfish until about noon. If the bite is not on we move to another ground.
While on the move, we like to put out lures for cero mackerel while the captain would be spotting for sailfish in the shallow waters. Depending upon current, wind and water conditions, we try some reef fishing at some point in the day so you and your party can enjoy a fresh catch of yellow tail snapper for dinner.
The Miller Time Charter supplies all licenses, bait and gear. We also provide a cooler and ice. You will need to pick up your drinks, snacks and suntan lotion prior to arriving at the dock because they are not available for purchase at Whale Harbor Marina. Here are a few of our favorite places to pick up sandwiches and such. Also, below is a list of local hotels and restaurants.
