The big four in the Miami and Miami Beach area are sailfish, tarpon, dolphin, and kingfish. They are, however, not the only species of fish that you might catch during your charter fishing trip aboard Knot Nancy. Read on and I'll give you an idea of various other species of fish that could be caught.

Mutton snapper are caught year round; however they are most prominent during the spring and fall months. These tasty fish can be caught on the bottom rod while drifting or anchored up on one of the many artificial reefs located off the coast of Miami Beach and Key Biscayne.

Blackfin tuna are primarily a spring time and early summer fish. First thing in the morning and last thing before dark is the prime time for this species of tuna.

Wahoo can strike your line anytime during the year. They can be targeted with some degree of success during the full moon periods in August and September. Don't be surprised if you catch one in late December or in April. They can be caught on kite baits, flatlines, or the downrigger.

Bonito (little tunny) and barracuda are caught mostly during the warmer months of the year. Once again we could find one of these species pulling very hard and testing your angling skills at any time during the year.

Amberjack can be caught dropping live baits down on the deeper wrecks or edge of the reef. These fish pull like crazy and will have you begging for someone else to take the rod and fishing winding the fish in.

Cobias are a late winter and early spring time fish. Many times they are mistaken for a shark. They come along while we are sailfishing and add some spice to a day of charter fishing.

Spanish mackerel are a winter and early spring time fish. They are great light tackle fun and readily strike both live bait and artificial baits.

As you can see there are a lot of other species of fish that might attack your line. That's the great thing about your charter fishing trip in the warm waters off Miami, Miami Beach, or Key Biscayne, you never know what species will hit your bait next.
