I had a good friend in town who is also my favorite guide in Montana visiting for a couple of days, and we were fortunate enough to have some calm seas to get out and do a little ocean fishing with him. We had a mixed bag including a couple of blackfin tunas, a couple of nice bottom fish, and the highlight of the trip was a really nice sailfish for my buddy Nate. (his first).....

Seared tuna appetizer, snapper tacos, and a few cold beers completed a pretty good day on the water.

Wow looks like you had a fun trip.

I have never saltwater fished at all but want to take the kid to. Is the fishing any good in jan or feb. around Miami or do you need to head to the key area that early. I know that bass fishing is good in jan but not sure about saltwater

billc,

The winter offshore fishing can be very good in the Miami area, but it can be hit or miss on the weather. The passing of fronts bring these migratory fish through our area, and with the fronts comes wind. It can be a bumpy ocean during the passing of a front, but the fishing can be red hot.... Especially for the sailfish... The day we had in the picture would be an off day. We had warm temps, a southeast wind, and no current. We did have lots of good live bait which was the difference.
