Your First Deep Sea Fishing Adventure

Have you ever been deep sea fishing? If you haven’t, you’re in for a thrilling experience! While we highly recommend a deep sea charter fishing boat to help you get your feet wet if you decide to go solo there are a couple of things to know.
Have the proper gear. What type of fish are you looking to catch? With so many different species, not every fish will respond to the same bait. Depending on the size of the fish, you may also need more powerful gear.
Know how to find the fish. To hunt down the sea dwellers you’re probably going to want to invest in a sonar device. On the other hand, you could avoid all of the guesswork and go with one of the aforementioned charter fishing boats. Let the experts deal with finding the fish while you concentrate on catching them.
Practice patience. You’ve likely seen those videos where a fisherman is reeling in a major catch. What it may fail to depict is the time it took to land. Fishing is not for the impatient, and you need to be ready the moment the fish latches onto your bait. Consider it not only a useful skill for fishing, but for life.

Sail the Seas on the THERAPY-IV This Month

The month of October may be all about some spooky celebrations, but there is nothing spooky about catching some big game fish this month! After the effects of Hurricane Irma, we are happy to report we’re up and sailing again and Captain Stan is excited to see you this month!
There is a reason why THERAPY-IV continues to receive positive reviews on TripAdvisor and why it has received the Certificate of Excellence multiple times. Just recently, a customer from Plano, Texas decided to take a maiden voyage and try deep sea fishing for the first time. As you’ll read in our newsletter, the experience “was such a blast” and they are ready to sail the seas of sunny South Florida once again!
At THERAPY-IV, we welcome local residents, tourists, visitors, just about anyone looking to try deep sea fishing and something excitingly different. The deep sea fishing boats are never crowded and only a maximum of six passengers are allowed.
We hope to see you in October!

Miami Beach Joins the Poke Craze

Are you a fan of the Hawaiian-born seafood bowl better known as poke? If so, you may want to check out the new Pink Rock Sea opening its doors on Miami Beach’s Española Way next month. In keeping with its name, the shop is tropically-themed, featuring strong use of bold colors like pink and green.
Pink Rock Sea is the product of siblings David and Jonathan Tang. This Miami Beach restaurant represents the first eatery by the brothers while the name of it refers to Hawaiian sea salt and the times the two spent partying it up at New York’s famous Roxy nightclub.
In case you’ve never heard of poke, the name of it is Hawaiian and it means “to cut or slice raw fish”. It’s a highly popular dish in cities such as New York and Los Angeles and also maintains a high degree of popularity in areas where there is a strong number of Hawaiian denizens. Miami Beach is one of the latest cities to join the poke craze.
Pink Rock Sea opens on October 10 and will be located at 214 Española Way.

Ice Bars, Pineapples, and Hurricane Benefits This Week

As Miami and Miami Beach continue to move forward beyond Hurricane Irma, there are plenty of events going on to keep South Floridians busy. The week may be coming to an end, but there is still lots to do.
Rosh Hashanah began last night, the Jewish New Year. In case you missed it, the popular Drinkhouse Fire & Ice right here in Miami Beach got into the swing of things last night. If you’ve never been there, the major highlight is the ice bar made out of 10,000 pounds of ice which includes ice sculptures and even drinks served in ice glassware. The bar is definitely a unique experience and worth a visit.
The Matador Room on Collins Avenue is serving a unique blend of pizza tonight at its Matador Bar as part of its monthly Pineapples & Pizza series. Try some avocado pizza made with ingredients like jalapeño while you sip on pineapple cocktails. Bring along a friend to enjoy the live music! The event begins at 9 pm.
Should you wish to contribute to a worthy cause, the Rust Pelican over in Key Biscayne is hosting its Pour for a Cause hurricane benefit event to raise funds for people still grappling with the effects of Hurricane Irma. You’ll find over eight drink stations plus a silent auction and plenty of raffles. The event begins at 7 pm and continues until 10 pm.

What Type of Bait Should You Use?

To catch fish, you’re going to need to grab their attention with the use of some alluring bait. While every fishing aficionado has their preferred bait, live baits have been proven to be effective in catching a multitude of species. The examples below are by no means the only solution but if you’re trying to figure out where to get started, they may help.
Crayfish. When you’re looking to snag some of the larger predatory fish, crayfish are highly effective. Perhaps the biggest hurdle you’ll run into with this bait is finding it, and they do require a degree of trial and error to use.
Nightcrawlers. This type of bait is a great choice for catching virtually any type of fish, but they do require proper rigging. Unlike crayfish, they are generally easier to find.
Live bait fish. Should you decide to go with live bait fish, the minnow remains a popular choice. As with nightcrawlers, they are readily available and have also been proven effective in snagging various sea dwellers. Make sure your fishing hook isn’t too large when using this type of bait.

Getting Started with Deep Sea Fishing

Getting started with deep sea fishing may seem overwhelming, but knowing a few basics can make the experience a little easier for those planning on trying it out for the first time. Here are a few things to know.
Decide your method. You can either take your own boat out or choose a chartered boat, the latter option is the wisest for beginners. Should you decide on a charter, you’ll need to decide whether you prefer a private charter or a shared one with other people. Also, make sure that you do your research on the captain.
Don’t let seasickness ruin the experience. There is a much greater likelihood of becoming seasick on a small boating vessel, a deep sea fishing boat being a prime example. For the most part, seasickness is mental and the less you focus on symptoms, the lower the odds of it happening. However, definitely take the steps to make sure you don’t become seasick. That means refraining from consuming alcohol and keeping some Dramamine around, just in case.
Get ready for some fun. Deep sea fishing can be as relaxing as it is thrilling, and there is nothing quite like catching a massive sea dweller. Learning how to fish can be a highly useful survival skill and the best crew will take the time to help you become a future expert fisherman.

Meet the Man Behind the Boat

Today we’d like to take a closer look at the man behind Miami Beach’s popular THERAPY-IV experience: Captain Stan Saffan. Saffan was introduced to fishing at the age of seven. Along with his father and sibling, he nurtured his experience by working on fishing piers and drift fishing boats before moving over to drift fishing boats as a deckhand. Saffan continued to learn the ropes and eventually earned the title of first mate by the time he was a teenager.
Upon attending college, Saffan spent his afternoons and weekends working on local sportfishing boats. A few years later, he officially began work on what would become the first THERAPY charter fishing boat, debuting it in 1976. Since then, he has evolved his deep sea fishing boat fleet into the modern vessel we know today as the THERAPY-IV.
As a longtime South Florida resident, Captain Stan knows all about the seas and its inhabitants. Consistently receiving top ratings on TripAdvisor, the experience is definitely a memorable one. Meet Captain Stan and discover deep sea fishing!

Are You Ready for the Eclipse?


The excitement for today’s solar eclipse has reached a fever pitch in South Florida as people scramble to find solar eclipse friendly glasses that are increasingly hard to come by. With the unobstructed views of the ocean and the sky, Miami Beach is a great spot to view the eclipse, a fascinating phenomenon that has not happened in more than 35 years!
You’ve probably heard a lot about how dangerous it is to stare directly at the eclipse, hence the need for safety glasses. To ensure your eyes are being properly protected, make sure these glasses meet the international standard ISO 12312-2 for safe viewing. Failure to take proper safety measures when staring at the eclipse could lead to significant eye damage, including permanent vision loss due to the intense ultraviolet rays. With an eclipse, there is an even greater risk as this damage can happen in a short amount of time. Definitely, make sure that your glasses or whatever method you’ve devised is safe.
Always remember to use proper eye protection even when an eclipse is not happening. When you’re out on a deep sea fishing boat, the rays reflecting off of the water can also be blinding.

Miami Beach to Launch Trolley Express Route

In an effort to further improve city transportation, Miami Beach is looking to roll out a complimentary express trolley service connecting the northern end and South Beach areas. Passengers would have a quick way of reaching North Beach and Lincoln Road, with minimal stops in between.
This express trolley would further extend the Miami Beach trolley, a free service that has considerably gained in popularity since its debut over the past three years. If everything goes according to plan, the Middle Beach route would undergo an extension to connect it further into the North and South Beach area.
Miami Beach is currently awaiting approval from Miami-Dade County commissioners to begin rolling out the express trolley. Once the city receives the okay, the new route is expected to be up and running sometime next month or in October.
Have you used Miami Beach’s free trolley at all? Would you be more inclined to use it if and when the city rolls out this new express route? Feel free to share in the comments.

Spend a Summer Day on the THERAPY-IV

The summer season is slowly drawing to a close, but it’s not too late to take advantage of the warm weather and enjoy some summertime fishing. From mahi-mahi, sailfish, and barracuda to wahoo sharks, and more, we can’t wait to catch some big fish with you! We have two large, modern deep sea charter fishing boats waiting at Haulover Marina and we offer the flexibility of full day or half a day fishing adventures. Don’t worry, our boats have A/C so you can remain cool during the sometimes sweltering heat.

We make it a point to keep the number of people low (six) so there’s plenty of space for everyone and plenty of opportunities to catch something big. With the flexibility of private or shared charters, you can choose which option suits you best. We welcome individuals, couples, families, and we’re also a great choice for groups. Have your next party on board and try something refreshingly different!

Jezebel Opens in Miami Beach

For those of you seeking a new place to try this weekend in Miami Beach, you may wish to visit the 2,300 square-foot Jezebel Bar + Kitchen. The restaurant and cocktail lounge will open its doors tomorrow in the space that once served as the home of Bacaro, Halo, and Mova.
Unlike clubs/lounges that serve food for a limited amount of time, Jezebel guests can dine on foods such as mini lobster tacos, flaming s’mores, and Jezebel wings from 5 pm until the wee hours of the morning (5 am). Besides the food, Jezebel’s selection of drinks will offer plenty of variety. Try the Julio Reposado Tequila, the Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic, or maybe the El Chapo starring Illegal Mezcal.
The interior design of Jezebel is a collaborative work between François Frossard and Liquid Hospitality. Upon walking in, guests will notice an intriguing fusion of Wynwood meets speakeasy, with vintage furniture, street art provided by the talented Miguel Paredes, and more.
Jezebel’s hours of operation are from 5 pm to 5 am and it is open every day of the week. Its address is 1625 Michigan Avenue.

If you’re just getting your feet wet, a half-day charter might be a good way to start. These charters last about four hours which allows enough time to familiarize yourself with the basics as well as catch lots of fish. You can opt for a morning or afternoon trip or you can always choose a full day experience.
Shared charters are a great way to meet new people. Most charter fishing boats allow for a maximum of six people. Instead of charging you for the extra/empty seats, we can fill in the empty ones so others can enjoy the experience.
For those seeking something intimate, private charters are also an option. Spend the day at sea with your significant other and we’ll try our best to accommodate your needs.
Corporate days at sea are a unique, fantastic way of sharing experiences with your colleagues while strengthening employee relationships and improving team building. We can organize multiple boats for large corporate groups.

Are You Ready to Go Shark Fishing?

In terms of adventure and thrill, the excitement probably reaches its apex with shark fishing. For those seeking to test their skills against these intimidating predators, it’s an incredible ride. The Gulf Stream is full of various sharks to catch, from the massive hammerhead and blacktip to the fearsome tiger shark.
Fishing gear has evolved significantly to where you can potentially get away with snagging a shark using smaller rods and reels. However, not having the right rods could result in lots of frustration, so you want to make sure your gear can withstand the massive strength of a shark. As for bait, bluefish and mackerel are good options, though you could also go with amberjack, cobia, or kingfish. And while it may seem common sense, strongly refrain from placing your fingers anywhere near a shark’s mouth. Even the slightest shark twitch could cause a shark’s mouth to clamp down on your digits.
Shark fishing requires not only technique but also having the right gear, especially gear that will protect you from South Florida’s blazing sunshine. If you’d like some help with getting your shark fishing feet wet, definitely set up an experience on the THERAPY-IV!

Getting Started with Reef Fishing

A successful reef fishing trip begins with finding where the reefs are, something that can be significantly simplified with the use of a depth finder. Maps are also a classic solution as many of these have GPS coordinates.
As with any type of fishing, there is no guarantee of consistency with reef fishing. A reef may be teeming with fish one day and then become sparse the next. However, major reefs are generally a more reliable bet and are typically swarming with various fish types.
Besides the reef location, the weather will also factor heavily in how successful your reef fishing trip is, particularly the wind as that will affect the tide and current speed. Boats need to be able to remain over the reef while remaining steady to ensure an optimum fishing experience. Hence, if you’re just getting your feet wet with reef fishing it’s best to stick to familiar waters or use an experienced guide.
Heavy action fishing rods are imperative to a successful reef fishing experience if you’re looking to catch something of decent size. Spinning gear works, but you’re definitely going to want a free spooling trolling reel.

What’s Wreck Fishing All About?

When you read or hear the term “wreck fishing”, you may think of the old days of swashbuckling pirates. The modern interpretation of wreck fishing includes not only shipwrecks but also artificial reefs and rough bottom fishing area.

With wreck fishing, perhaps the toughest part is indeed finding a structure to fish at. This requires taking the time to thoroughly research which areas have the best potential for fish. Thankfully, there are numerous resources to help you find the ideal spots, especially when it comes to artificial reefs.

Finding wrecks can be a little tricky, but it does yield great rewards provided you’re patient enough. A GPS is essential to help pinpoint the correct location. Modern GPS units have become highly accurate within about three to five meters, making it much easier to find wrecks and reefs without being too far off.

South Florida abounds in wreck fishing opportunities for anglers of all skill levels. Some of the fish you may come across or catch include mackerel, sea bass, grouper, and more. Jig fishing, live bait, and chicken rigs are also effective in finding fish hanging out near wrecks.

Captain Stan has numerous years of experience with wreck fishing and he has even assisted the agencies in charge of sinking many of the wrecks for the Dade County Artificial Reef Program and the Broward County Artificial Reef Program. Get in touch with him and prepare for something uniquely exciting!

Saltwater Fishing Tips

To enjoy a great saltwater fishing experience you’re going to need to begin with the foundations: a good reel and rod. With so many different types to choose from, you’re also going to have to narrow down your selection. Surf fishing, pier fishing, deep sea fishing, and saltwater bay fishing are a few examples of different types that fall under the umbrella of saltwater fishing.
For those that already have some level of experience with saltwater fishing, there are some tips that might help with your next big catch. The Bimini Twist or Twenty-Times-Around Knot is considered the only knot capable of maintaining full strength under virtually any condition. As for lures, fish are known to bite best on those that appear bright and new.
Speaking of lures, it may be wisest to allow a second or two for a fish to have the bait in its mouth prior to setting the hook if circumstances allow. If the fish is visible, wait until the lure disappears inside the mouth of the fish. If you’re having trouble determining the right time to hook, do it when a significant amount of pressure is coming from the line because of the fish.

Discover Tournament Fishing

As you can probably figure out from its name, tournament fishing is a competition among those who consider themselves anglers, it’s also referred to as a derby. These tournaments generally consist of various competitive events on a certain body of water such as a lake, river, or ocean, with each event having specific rules.
Prizes for fishing tournaments are based on the total weight of specific species of fish that have been caught within an allotted timeframe. There are, however, competitions that are based on fish length, where anglers are required to catch and release the fish. Many professional competitors are often commercially endorsed.
With the Internet becoming so prevalent, fishing tournaments are gaining popularity worldwide. Events can be held in multiple bodies of water or areas or even in multiple countries, allowing anglers that live hundreds of miles from each other to go after the same prize despite the great distance.

The Basics of Bottom Fishing

Perhaps the most common of fishing techniques, bottom fishing is a means of catching fish dwelling near the sea floor, just as its name suggests. Despite coming across as a lazy method of fishing, bottom fishing requires significant technique when it comes to drifting and anchoring. As fish such as the grouper and red snapper typically hang out near wrecks and reefs, bottom fishing is considered one of the most effective means of catching them.

Bottom fishing can be done from land or by boat using rods or handlines. The technique involves dropping the bait towards the sea bottom to attract the attention of fish and get them to grab onto the lure. Once the fish grabs the bait, it will feel the weight resistance and will bolt away, causing them to hook onto the bait hook. This weight is also helpful in making sure the bait stays put even if currents are strong.

The Beautiful Yet Powerful Bonito

Related to the tuna and mackerel, the bonito is a medium-sized predatory fish that also goes by the name of Sardini. Interestingly, the word bonito is also an adjective meaning “pretty” or “beautiful” in Spanish. Despite this, it’s believed that the name of the fish comes from the Italian “buono”, which means “good” or “bonus”. The name may be in reference to the bonito’s rich taste.
It may be a small fish and carry a “pretty” name, but the bonito is known for striking hard and it demands respect from those planning on attempting to snag one. To catch one, most fishermen use a straightforward approach. Upon grabbing the attention of a school of bonitos, they will latch onto just about any bait used.
The bonito is among the many unique species of fish dwelling in the cerulean waters of South Florida. If you think you’re ready to take on this tuna-like sea dweller, get ready for an unforgettable experience on the THERAPY-IV!
