Fishing in The Crossings

Select Local Merchants

Rocky the tiger, Chewy the camel, and a literal rescue of other animals such as alligators, chameleons, owls, and wolves are just a few of the critters that take up residence at the nonprofit Everglades Outpost Wildlife Refuge and Rescue. Though their pasts aren?t necessarily happy?all of the facility's animals are taken in due to neglect, improper care, or injury?the staff of loving volunteers ensures each story ends happily and each tail continues to wag as they revive and nurse native and exotic animals from all walks of life back to health. In addition to the refuge, which is open to the public, the Everglades Outpost Wildlife Refuge and Rescue also conducts educational events and outreach programs.

Q&A with Vince, Captain

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

Aside from fishing, I ... offer sight seeing tours around the famous Miami islands, [such as] Star Island and other points of interest.

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

The boat's flexibilities- its a flats/bay boat that can go into ... places where other, larger boats can not go. Also, the wide variety of fish available. And you never know what you may encounter: a pod of porpoises chasing food or a log-head turtle just getting air.

What?s your favorite part of your job?

Seeing the look on people's face catching fish. Its so gratifying as a guide to get your clients [a] fish. Aside from the fishing is when we all head up to a local sandbar, have the client decompress from fishing, and just wade in knee deep 85 to 90 [degree] water with their favorite beverage.

Miami is known for many things?art-deco architecture, vibrant nightlife, and mix of cultures. But the glue that binds Miami's spectral smorgasbord is the ocean, which is where Watersports of Miami comes in. The company rents out boats and yachts along with a bilingual captain and accoutrements such as stereo systems, coolers, and wet bars. Small groups can lounge or revel in the south Florida sun while cruising past the Miami skyline, near pods of dolphins, and safely away from the Earth's searing, molten core. But the company doesn't stop with just boats and yachts. Staffers can pair customers with water tubes and wakeboards, each of which can be rented alone or added to a boat rental.

The Kite Farm rents paddleboards, kiteboards, and surfboards and offers lessons to the aspiring and advanced boarder on how to maneuver through the ocean and perform gravity-defying feats during lessons. Tours and backcountry trips provide beautiful scenery while exploring isolated and exotic locales, such as Soldier Key, the Haulover Sandbar, and Stiltsville, a group of Prohibition-era wood houses built on stilts.

Captain Wayne Conn draws on expertise garnered through tournament fishing and a native’s knowledge of South Florida’s waters when taking groups out for deep-sea charter fishing. Captains Chris Neiderman, Ryan Omsted, and Chris Temmel round out The Reward Fleet crew, which together boasts more than a century of experience.

Up to 50 passengers can climb aboard The Another Reward, a 70-foot angling boat equipped with electronics to locate fish, a galley, and a salon with eight dinettes inside. Three times a day, she sets sail on public charter-fishing trips so guests can scan ocean waves for fish such as tuna, kingfish, bonito, sailfish, snapper, and grouper. During these trips, guests will be provided with all the necessary equipment and bait. The crew also specializes in corporate charters, bachelor parties, and long-range trips.
