Bait Fish and Target Species: Unlocking the Thrill of South Florida Fishing

Bait Fish

In the realm of South Florida fishing, the world of bait fish is a fascinating blend of science and industry. It’s not uncommon for specific bait fish to command prices exceeding $10 per fish during peak seasons. Here are some of the common species we encounter:

  • Goggle Eye
  • Cigar Minnow
  • Ballyhoo
  • Pilchard
  • Herring
  • Sardine
  • Blue Runner
  • Grunt
  • Rainbow Runner

Every charter typically kicks off with a stop to either purchase or catch bait, or sometimes both.

Offshore Species

Venturing into the vastness of the Atlantic from Biscayne Bay unveils a rich tapestry of species, ranging from 1 lb to over 1000 lbs. Each species offers its own level of sportiness, fighting strength, and sometimes rarity. While some are seasonal, they all contribute to the diverse South Florida fishery, unique in its own right.

Inshore Species

Closer to home, in the sheltered waters of Biscayne Bay, resides a vibrant community of inshore species. These fish prefer the shallow, brackish waters over the open ocean, making Florida’s geography a haven for sought-after game fish. Here are some of the species you might encounter:

  • Permit
  • Tarpon
  • Snook
  • Bonefish
  • Redfish

Exploring these diverse ecosystems promises an unforgettable fishing adventure, whether you’re targeting offshore giants or stalking the shallows for elusive inshore species.
