Southeast Florida is home to a wide variety of fish from small tropical reef fish to large game fish. Some fish are seasonal, but lucky for us (and you) many of them are here year round.

 

Below is a list of some of the more popular fish that are available on a regular basis.

 

 

 

The Sailfish is probably the most sought after game fish in South Florida. They are an excellent fighting fish and one of the most acrobatic, with many jumps.

 

 

 

 

The Swordfish is possibly the hardest fighting game fish in the ocean. They are usually fished for at night on heavier tackle.


 

Although not as numerous as Sailfish or Swordfish, Marlin are sometimes caught by a lucky angler. Because of their tendency to be where the Dolphin fish are, Marlin are usually hooked on lighter tackle which makes for a much more challenging fight.

 

 

There are numerous types of Sharks in the waters off of South Florida. Some of the more frequently caught are the Hammerhead, Big Eyed Thresher, Mako, as well as the Bull, Black tip, Dusky, Silky, Spinner, and Sandbar sharks.

 

 

 

The Barracuda is an excellent light tackle game fish, known for their large sharp teeth. They have no food quality, except to be used as bait for the bigger fish.

 

 

The Amberjack has a brown back and white belly with a golden colored stripe in the middle with a brown strip around its eyes and head. It is known for its long lasting fighting ability.

 

 

The Dolphin fish is bright green and yellow with blue spots, and is one of the most colorful fish you will find in the ocean. Males, called bulls, have a blunt head, while the females, called cows, have a more rounded head. Great action and taste.

 

 

The three types of Mackerel that are caught in South Florida are Cero, Spanish, and King. The Kingfish is the largest of species, usually over ten pounds, while the Cero and Spanish range from one to about five pounds.

 

 

Wahoo is best known to sports fishermen, as its speed and high-quality flesh make it a prize game fish. In Hawaii, the wahoo is known as ono. Many Hispanic areas of the Caribbean and Central America refer to this fish as peto.
