Top Five Miami Fishing Spots To Take Dad For Father's Day

Bobby Jenkins
Game fish are abundant in the waters off the coast.
There are few experiences more rewarding than reeling in a big one with dad. Add a few beers in the cooler, a couple of turkey sandwiches, a bucket full of chum, and pops is (usually) ebullient.

Miami has plethora of ideal fishing locations. Freshwater fishing inland can yield largemouth bass, blue-gill and catfish. Off shore, there are tarpon, snook, barracuda and shark.

5. Blackpoint Marina
Located near Biscayne National Park, this marina boasts a jetty which extends 1.5 miles into the bay for casting. There is also a dockside restaurant and bar, large picnic pavilion and grill, bikeways and a jogging trail. Here you will have a chance to catch snook, bonefish, and tarpon, among many other saltwater species.

4. Matheson Hammock Park
Anglers are drawn to this park's unusual feature -- a man-made atoll pool, which is flushed naturally with the tidal action of Biscayne Bay. This makes for a constant supply of snapper, mullet and snook in the shallow waters. One of the most popular places to fish is under the bridge on the right side of the park, past the toll gate.

First: nice catch no pun intended as you beat me to my comment as the only bonefish in the picture is the "Bonehead" is kareem, Second that "Schooly" Mahi so any one who takes a pic deserves to be fined..I hope someone from the widlife management see's this and fines their asses...

Um Hate to tell you guys but that photo of the two guys contains neither a bonefish nor a tarpon. That's a small blackfin tuna and an even smaller mahi mahi. Why would anyone trust or even read a column about MIami's Top Fishing Spots from a writer who obviously knows nothing about the local fish?
