April Fishing Off Fort Lauderdale
This week has been a mixed bag with fishing, mainly associated with weather changes. On Sunday we went kite fishing for sailfish right after a cold front came through, and the billfishing was awesome. We went 12 for 19 on the sailfish bite and boy it was busy in the cockpit. We had rods bending, reels screaming, fish jumping, and our anglers hootin’ and hollerin’! The day after the front went by the billfishing completely dropped off, but the Lady Pamela II found a few dolphin, along with some kingfish and blackfin tunas.
The last couple days of fishing has been all about the game sharks. Hammerheads and silky sharks are really starting to come through the Ft. Lauderdale area as they migrate from the north to the south.
