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, JacksGroupers, Cobia, Trigger Fish & Other assorted smaller bottom fish.

Above the Wrecks are KingsTuna’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 SnapperVermillion SnapperLane SnapperGrouper, Trigger Fish & many others.

The second method is suspending a live bait on a long leader with a three way swivel

connected to a 1lb to 3lb pound lead.  We use this rig with a live Pin FishBlue RunnerBonita or other live bait fish to fish for larger GrouperAmberjackAlmaco Jack & other larger bottom fish.
