    Kite Fishing for Tuna in Miami

    Published May 27th, 2014

    Spring Fishing Report 5/27 It’s been quite a while since the last report but here it is. As usual spring never fails to impress. April and May are two of my favorite times of year to fish off Miami as we catch a variety of species and sometimes put up impressive numbers. We kite fished the last few months and had some memorable charters. Kite fishing for tuna in Miami is a springtime phenomena that never fails to disappoint. Catching blackfin tuna from 20-30lbs on light tackle and enjoying tuna steaks and fresh sushi after the charter never gets old. The tuna fishing stayed productive all throughout May with sailfish and more mixed in. We also caught cobia, mutton snapper, mahi, kings, and more. On the flats we crushed the seatrout with the novice anglers and had shots at permit, mutton snapper, and bonefish during a few sight fishing trips. A quick recap: On April 4th we caught 3 Spotted Seatrout to 21’’ on ultralight tackle and fly ...

    Kite Fishing in Miami

    Published March 27th, 2014

    Springtime Fishing Report Hands down the most effective way to present multiple live baits for offshore big game fish in South Florida is by using a fishing kite. Kite Fishing in Miami is a surefire method of attracting the attention of virtually every predatory species down here. Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Dolphin (mahi mahi), Kingfish, Wahoo, Cobia, Grouper, Snapper, and many more all go bananas for the distressed vibrations of bait fish presented right on the surface. By using two properly weighted and tuned kites, fisherman are capable of presenting 6 frisky live baits on the surface, with 8 not out of the question (if you're brave enough). Deep Sea Fishing Aboard the Blue Yonder Kite Fishing Tackle When presented properly very little terminal tackle is visible in the water, meaning anglers can use whatever tackle they desire. Our approach (as is standard in the industry) is to use 6 high speed conventional reels backed with 500 yards of Bullbuster Braid, and then filled to the brim with 20lb Kitevis monofilament. These reels are ...

    Kite Fishing for Dolphin

    Published November 3rd, 2012

    Kite Fishing for Dolphin and Sailfish off Miami We left the dock at 8:30 for a morning trip to start up our group's bachelor party where they would head to the keys after the charter. We already penned up some threadfin herring earlier that week so we got to fly by the mayhem at bug and put lines in the water. There wasn't much current on the edge and things were a little slow at the start. It didn't take too long before a dolphin at the left short kite bait and started jumping. We came tight and got him in the cooler pretty quick. Soon after, we caught another dolphin in about 180'. We scooted out to a decent current rip in about 300' after boating the gaffers. We had a small shark cruise into the spread and we pitched a live bait to him. He inhaled the bait and one of our customers began bringing him to the boat. Midway through the fight, a sailfish destroyed the left ...

    Kite Fishing in the Rain

    Published June 22nd, 2012

    The morning started off clear with a 9 or 10 knot breeze, but of course that didn't last long. We braced ourselves for a day of kite fishing in the rain. After spending a few minutes searching, we found the pods of pilchards 1/2 mile east of bug and filled the well in short order. We headed south and put the kites up on an edge in 150'. The light winds only allowed us to fish 4 baits. At about this time the first clouds came through and storms began to form offshore. After a half hour we had to pull the kites because of the rain. We moved offshore a ways and cut the engines in 375 to begin a beam-to drift in the flat ocean. We had just set the bow flat and deep rod (among the 6 other baits in the cockpit) when the deep rod went off. A few minutes of fighting had an angry bonita boatside. Feder reset and redeployed the deep rod, which went off minutes after with another angry ...
