Sport Fishing Charters in Miami - Tips

Hire a Licensed Captain!

Many "skippers" want to claim their credentials yet do not possess the proper US Coast Guard license required by law when in the business of chartering their boat for hire.

While they may be cheaper charters, these "Bare Boat" Charters leave you with 100% of the liability 100% of the time. You should not have to sign waivers when your Captain has the proper licenses and insurance. Before boarding, just ask "may I see your current USCG Captain's license and insurance."  

What to Expect, What to Bring

Bring water, beverages and food.

Weather is fickle in Florida and all charters are weather-dependent. Thunderstorms are a regular feature in South Florida so it is good to be prepared. Call Captain Sig to get up-to-the minute forecast details. The sun out here is brutal so the value of sunscreen cannot be under-estimated. Long, light protective clothing is best. Polarized sunglasses are a “must” for successful site fishing and highly recommended.

And of course: a hat, suntan lotion, and lots of water. Once you have all these things get ready for the time of your life. Don't forget the camera!

Owner-Operator, Captain Sig Ozols

"Productive charter fishing at a great price is my pursuit of a lifetime.

I discovered the thrill of deep sea fishing when I was 8 years old. I worked every part of the industry to hone my skill and land more billfish. Today it is all about thrill and light tackle. Clients are combinging gear and light tackle like never before. For me, its all about the chase and keeping it safe and simple. Live bait and tight lines = productive fishing. Let us do the rest."
