Over the years I've averaged four jumped fish per day while fishing in the Glades, and barely one per day elsewhere. Now, a lot of those four are in the 25-40 pound range, but they're still a blast. And you can catch 100#+ fish there, too. Off the Keys the fish will average quite a bit bigger, but the average gets wacked by all the days with no fish. When I used to fish the Miami area for an entire week, we'd often go into the Glades three times and then east of Biscayne Bay for a day or two or maybe to Key Largo for a day. Terrific variety and lots of options depending upon the expected weather.
