    Anyone know of any good spots in the Miami area to bridge/pier/bank fish? I have lived here for 2 years and have yet to find a decent honeyhole. I gotta get that first snook!!!

    unfortunately there arent many to fish from any more. ive been here all my life and little by little all the fishing spots are closing. you either have to go up north or go south towards the keys. thats why ive setup a petition for all to sign. A few friends and I are working together to get something done about this. check out my petition post in this section. theres a few inlets on cardsound road where you can go target some snook. ive had a bit of luck down there. hope it helps. and if you get a chance come sign the petition www.ipetitions.com/petition/piers_bridges

    angler - Let me first start with a disclaimer, it's been since '02 that i lived in miami, so things may have changed; but when i live in miami these were some of my shore/wade haunts:

    Try the jetty on the south side of the bridge (A1A) at Haulover Park ( Bal Harbour ). There is free parking during the day but at night they WILL tow... if you are night snooking you'll have to actually park in Haulover park near where the head boats go out (north side of bridge) and walk across the bridge to get to it. Walk the seawall along the condos to get out onto the Jetty. Its a bit of a hike 1/4 - 1/2 mile but can be well worth it, much more fun when you have two people, so you can the drop gear at the foot of the jetty and have a lighter walk to the fishing.

    Also, used to be able to get onto the beach/grass flats on either side of the virginia key / key biscane brige. On the key biscane side park in the park (again where the head boats dock) at the foot of the bridge and wade on out... i think the beach on the north side of the causwaythere is restricted access so stay out past mean high tide line (which i belive is the legal demarcation between state property and private property). On the virginia key side you need to park (if it is still legal) in one of the pull outs off of Arthur Lamb Rd (the road is on the left near the sea aquarium as you are headed towards key biscane). If you are not allowed to park there, you can always try the fishing pier under the bridge. That pass used to be a good snooking spot. Remeber if its not legal i didn't suggest it!

    On an aside, at the end of Arthur Lamb Rd there is a funky little dive of a bar for a cold beer after fishing where you can also buy bait shrimp by the pound.

    Not sure about catching quality snook, but another good wade option is Matheson Hammock Park off of Old Cutler Road (just north of where Old Cutler intersects with Red Road). Access to miles of lush grass flats there.

    Hope this helps. I'd check out the night fishing at Haulover first if snook is what you are after. Good luck.

    I would walk the canals for snook myself...I live in Miami also and the snook are around in the canals...its not hard to believe that most spots are closed off though...just look at the number of people cheating the system[mostly illegals anyway] and keeping every little tiny fish they can snag then leave all the glass and trash for everyone to enjoy...I see it every single day here from buckets of peacock bass to 6 inch snapper
