Government Cut – what an odd name for a fishing spot. I’ve read that during the winter fishing season Government Cut is tarpon central. Since I’ll be visiting in July I’m wondering if I want to expend my Mercury OptiMax oil there or move on to another hole.
What’s keeping me from making a decision one way or the other is that the Cut is in a great location. The north side of the north jetty extends to 18th Street on Miami Beach, while the south side extends to Fisher Island. The deep channel attracts mangrove snapper, grouper, barracuda, and cobia. Not sure if I’d want to catch a barracuda, but mangrove snapper sounds delectable.
