Your jig bounces bottom, drops, bounces, drops, just as it has for the past hour. Then BOOM, you're hit. Something very alive and very strong is hooked. Line zips off your reel as the fish bolts for the ocean. Miami sleeps as you struggle with this fish. This is why you need fishing guide Capt. Alex.
Nighttime battles with monster snook and tarpon in Upper Biscayne Bay are Captain Alex's forte. Despite the daytime boat traffic and hustle and bustle of Miami, big fish thrive here, and darkness is their friend. Alex focuses his nighttime fishing on Government Cut and Haulover Inlet, as well as the interior of Upper Biscayne Bay, depending on wind and weather conditions. If you want the extreme experience of fighting a tank snook or tarpon at night, give fishing guide Capt. Alex Rodriguez a call.

The flats are beautiful. They are extreme. They are both generous and contrary. They will beat you down. On this day the wind kicks up. Clouds move in, making fish truly invisible. It's been three hours and all you've seen are sharks and rays. Other skiffs retire for the afternoon. But Capt. Alex won't give up. He knows a sheltered spot. Once there he begins poling. Halfway across the flat he whispers, "Fish! One o'clock. 30 yards." You see it now. But it's too big to be a bone. Is it? No. Wait, My god, it is. It's a bone! Crunch time. It's all you, now. It's your fault or your prize. You cast. Close enough. The fish perks up. Alex makes you wait and wait and wait. "Now!" Fish on!
