Miami Beach Fishing Charters

Spending time in the Miami area before you head down to our islands in the Keys? My good friend Captain Jorge Amores of No Games Fishing Charters runs trips out of the Haulover Beach area. He offers a few pickup locations so it’s convenient even from Fort Lauderdale or Hollywood, FL.  On a good weather day he’ll take you right offshore, and his focus is inshore Miami Beach fishing charters. He’s a fun captain, a great fisherman, and a top-notch guy.
