Miami Fishing Report – Golden Tilefish

Posted by on January 5, 2013

Miami Fishing Report – January 1st, 2013Miami Fishing Report - Miami limit of Golden Tilefish

Todays Miami Fishing Report is about the return of Golden Tilefish season.  Golden Tilefish fishing has been closed for months and the season reopened on January 1st.   It has been long awaited, so mow lets go fishing.  The bag limit on Golden Tilefish is one per person.

Miami Fishing Report… The Tilefish bite is On!

We had just perfect conditions for Tilefish fishing the past few days.  With a medium North Current out on the one hundred fathom line and light winds from the South – South East, getting on the Golden Tilefish was easy.  Using fresh cut bait like herring & Mackerel the bites were quick.  The average fish was about eight pounds with the largest of the week at about 15lb.  We were using 20lb spectra line and about 2 lb.of weight to hold bottom. Bites were quick and we were able to catch a limit of fish for each charter fairly quickly.

While we are fishing for Golden Tilefish we are also fishing a shark bait on the surface and a few live baits in the spread.  We have been catching a few Silky Sharks and Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) while out in the deeper water.  We also had a small Mako Shark hooked on a live Blue Runner that after a short battle managed to shake the hook free, lucky for him.
