Big Mahi and Lots of Kingfish On The Reef

January 17, 2017

As I write this I am sitting at the dock and have noticed the flags are standing still. Finally it is calm! It seems like the wind was going to blow forever, but I am happy my customers this week get to experience calmer seas and good fishing.  With all this wind, there has been current too, and that means the fishing has been really good.

While each day has been different, the one thing that has been consistent has been the Kingfish bite on the troll and on the kites. Seems like this one of the best kingfish seasons I have seen in about 5 years.  If you have never caught a kingfish, they are known from their screaming first run right off the bat.

Also recently, we have seen an influx of mahi on the first and second reef.  We have had some awesome fish pushing over 30 pounds lately and just when we think we have caught the biggest mahi of the season, we go ahead and get another bigger one.

For those looking to get out this week, I have several openings and some great deals starting at just $35.  Whether you are looking to take the kids fishing or put some meat in the cooler, we have great fishing for everyone.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
