Celebrating another year in the charter business with Sailfish, Mahi, Tuna, Cobia, T-shirts, and More!

It’s been a busy few weeks for us here at Team Marauder.  We celebrated another successful year this April, looking back on some amazing experiences.  We started off the month strong by joining Capt. Hunter Caballero of Paradise Outfitters in Venice, LA for another round of tuna fishing.  We were joined by Capt. Nick, and Capt. Scott and manged to boat a few nice 40-70lb class yellowfin (as well as a bunch of bonito and blackfin used as bait).    A wonderful tuna / crawfish fiesta ensued.


I can definitely say that in the few years i’ve been sportfishing in Miami, my game has improved exponentially thanks to the help of some great folks who I’ve enjoyed fishing with.  You really do learn something new every trip if you want to.  Here’s a few of my favorite photos from the trip.

It was actually a bit difficult to run off to Louisiana while the bite in Miami was so good.  The sailfish have been through in droves, large schools of bonitas, schools of gaffer mahi, and smaller blackfin tunas have been showing up as well.  We’ve had a lot of solid 3 and 4 sailfish half days flying kites while pitching live chum.  It never get old hearing someone tell us they caught their first billfish, or their largest fish ever while fishing aboard the Marauder.  We love catching big fish as well, and seeing a lit up sailfish tailwalk across the surface of the sea will always be an awesome experience.  Nothing beats watching those big billfish give our anglers the fight of a lifetime.  After watching a sailfish destroy a kite bait…the adrenaline of reeling against the fastest fish in the ocean is really hard to beat!

We’ve had a lot of fun in the last few weeks, putting people on their first sailfish, big amberjacks, and mahi-mahi.

The bait has been thick and plentiful in Miami waters, which can make for a great day of throwing pilchards as live chum.  We always aim to get a few livewells full of bait daily for our trips, and sometimes sabiki the larger threadfin herring before heading offshore to fly kites for the larger pelagic fish.

We’ve been having good luck with our new bottom sounder (courtesy of Capt. Scott cutting a hole in the Contender hull.) on the shipwrecks – landing large amberjacks and cobias.


We’ve also put some new shoes (and legs) on our outboards – adding some new propellers (thanks to Frank & Jimmies), and some lower unit repairs which Capt. Scott pulled together.  The boat is running faster and more efficiently than ever before!

Lastly, in Marauder news, we’ve designed some T-shirts for our customers who have asked – you can finally order a t-shirt, long-sleeve, or hoodie through our cafe press store.

If you get a chance – we would love to have you come  out and fish with us.  The spring fishery in Miami is really incredible and an amazing time to enjoy a well deserved day on the water.  Give us a call or drop us a line, and join us for a beautiful day on the crystal clear blue waters of south florida!
