Monster Fishing with THERAPY-IV

Ready to catch some big fish? THERAPY-IV has you covered. This fall, book your Miami deep sea fishing charter and get prepared to catch some monster fish! Many of the local species in Miami are large fish, putting up quite the fight when wrangling them in from the water. With an experienced captain and crew with over 54 years of experience catching monsters of the deep, you know your next fishing trip will be one to remember. 

One of the most common monster catches we see are of groupers. There are many types roaming around the Atlantic waters of South Florida and can mainly be found over coral reefs, artificial reefs, sunken ships (since they are bottom feeders), coral patches, ledges, drop-offs, and rocky bottom areas. Some groupers can reach weights of nearly 100 pounds and make excellent fighters. We typically use conventional deep-sea fishing rods and deep-sea fishing reels, but heavy equipment can be used in deeper waters. 

Marlin fishing in Miami Beach is another popular pastime. Marlins are not usually a targeted species but are often caught when looking for sailfish and sharks. They are one of the toughest fish to catch in the Atlantic. They jump powerfully when caught, either on the surface or plummeting back into the deep waters. 

Tarpons are another monster fish found in the warm waters of Miami. They are quite large and strong, so they are a favorite catch among beginners and experienced anglers. They love to put up a fight when getting reeled in, jumping and shaking about, especially with their heads while trying to throw off the hook. Tarpons can weigh anywhere from 60 to 150 pounds and are in season all year round. THERAPY-IV uses live bait and live shrimp to reel them in.
