Miller Time offers several trips to fish the Florida Keys. Ranging from 1/2 day charters, to full day and 12-hour extreme, Miller Time Sportfishing offers a comprehensive list of fishing types and trip lengths to cater to any vacation schedule!

Below is a chart giving a basic idea of the times of year that we fish for different catch. If you have questions, feel free to contact Miller Time at 305-509-2922. (Click image to enlarge and back button to return).


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 can be done on a 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 requires our 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.
