Fantastic Morning Of Sailfishing off Ft lauderdale

November 9, 2012

November 7, 2012

This morning Darin and I took out a few clients from Oregon and Indiana. We stopped by the Lauderdale Marina on the way out and picked up some goggleyes for kite fishing. A cold front had just come through the area so I knew it was likely that a few sailfish might be around, and that they would be hungry. We found the current out in five hundred feet of water in front of Port Everglades and it was a smoking north current. Darin popped the kites up and in less than 20 minutes there was a sailfish jumping behind the boat. Angler Paul jumped into the fighting chair and landed the first fish. It turned into another crazy sailfish day as we proceeded to catch six sailfish in a row, one after the other. The weather may have been a little cold but the fishing sure was hot! What a great day for kite fishing.

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
