Wreck Fishing Miami…
I really enjoy Wreck Fishing, if you are on the right wreck and the fish are hitting it is usualy “insta bite”. The artificial reefs off Miami & Miami Beach are filled with all kinds of Snappers, Jacks, Groupers, Cobia, Trigger Fish & Other assorted smaller bottom fish.
Above the Wrecks are Kings, Tuna’s & other pelagic fish. We use two different methods of Bottom Fishing. The first rig is what we call a”Chicken Rig” which is a multiple hook, up and down rig, with the lead on the bottom, hooks on dropper loops in the middle and a swivel to connect to the fishing rod. This rig is used to catch bottom fish on cut bait, such as Red Snapper, Vermillion Snapper, Lane Snapper, Grouper, Trigger Fish & many others.
The second method is suspending a live bait on a long leader with a three way swivel
