"Tarpon Fishing Charters in Miami at Their Best"

Date: 2012-10-17      Tarpon Fishing In The Haulover Area

A 3/4 day trip with Brad, John, and Mike had us facing a wind that was blowing a healthy NNE/NE @ 16 - 19 knots with gusts to 21 knots. A knot is equivalent to 1.15 miles per hour. We decided to stay in the calmer waters of north Biscayne Bay. We took the plunge to go north to Dumbfoundling Bay. Although the action was not on fire, we did catch and release a 40# tarpon along with several jack crevalle and several barracuda. During the time we were up there, we saw only a half dozen tarpon roll on the surface. This is not the normal trend for that area. We also did not see any mullet.

Fished Haulover area this evening. TNT Marine Center basin was loaded with finger mullet. Made one cast with the net off the bow of my boat and had plenty of mullet to tarpon fish with. Started down the beach at 96th Street and worked my way back up to the Inlet. Caught one barracuda. Worked my way into the Inlet and hooked a tarpon using the new TroKar Saltwater Series Circle Hook by Eagle Claw. Bruce fought the fish and we took pictures and got a DNA sample after the tide pushed us past the bridge and onto the flats. Worked the area in front of the charter boats and caught another barracuda. Made one more pass through the Inlet from outside to inside and called it a night.

Although tarpon fishing is not red hot, it's still worth while giving it a shot. Between the first trip I did as reported above, the finger mullet have shown up in large numbers. The hard NNE/NE wind did it's job and pushed schools of mullet down into our area. The tarpon are munching on them, so if you'd like to get in on the action just give me a call or email me to set up a date.
