New to Miami, looking to fish!
Hi All. I am new to both this forum and South Florida and looking to start fishing! I have done some inshore kayak fishing in Wilmington, NC and quite a bit of offshore (30-50 miles), not kayak fishing, also from Wilmington. I am pretty excited to find out there is such an active kayak fishing community in the area. That said, I have a few questions.
- Is there anyone fishing from the Miami area? I am in Coral Gables and would like to get my feet wet down here, before trekking further north.
- If anyone DOES fish out of this area, what are some good places to check out? Species found? I didn't see too much about fishing Biscayne Bay in the forums.
- I have a Wilderness Systems 14.5', sit-inside ocean kayak. I have the spray skirt, a rod holder, paddle holder and a comfortable pfd. Does anyone else use a sit-inside? Have any tips for setup or additional equipment?
