I'd recommend going to microskiffs.com They usually are very open to sharing guides and other information for fishing in Florida. I've gathered a lot of intel there for my Florida DIY trips in the past. I think there's even a guide or 2 on site for the Miami area.
Tight lines & Have Fun!!

Monster Mike is a YouTube and Instagram famous peacock guide in Miami.
If you're into that sort of thing, he's good at putting people on good fish.

I fished there about 10 years ago , I can't remember the guides name. Be advised , the species they have in Miami is NOT the
species that gets to 20 lbs. I believe the world record for the species found in Florida is 12 lbs , Florida state record is 9 lbs.
, but some claim fish to 12lb have been caught there.

The year I was there , the numbers were down due to a very cold winter the year before. It was fun , but the tarpon fishing was much more fun. [Linked Image]

Lived in south florida for 30 plus years before moving back to Texas. Never fished with Hai Truong, but knew his reputation and was a good friend of another friend of mine that guided for peacocks (he passed away). If you want an interesting way of fishing for them.. read up on him and decide if you'd like to try land based fishing.

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Ty Henderson(?) on 30 Miles Out and his wife, Teresa, recently did a YouTube video on fishing for Peacocks in Miami. They found some. Worth watching, and maybe sending Ty an e-mail for guidance. They're back in Rockport, where they're kayak/skiff guides. IslandJim

I used HawgHunter guide service when I went caught about 20 in the 1.5 - 5# range, a 4' tarpon on 8# test that broke off, plus the school snook we chased around for awhile, I also caught some large chiclad in the 3 or 4# range. Best fighting fish I caught while I was down there. I stayed at a hotel across from the airport, it wasn't that great but ok , it did have a excellent restaurant. The guide picked me up and dropped me off at the dock behind the hotel. It was a good time.
