Fort Lauderdale deepsea fishing March 19

Huge BaracudaMarch 18


Friday we started with 5 people on a split trip in the morning and 6 on a split for the afternoon. On the morning charter we caught 2 nice barracudas and a few mahi-mahi. Trolling along a blue edge in 200 feet of water we found a few logs floating with mahi hiding underneath along with some small wahoo.
That afternoon we had on board Kevin and his son from Prince Edward Island and Jeff from Michigan. We ran south from Ft. Lauderdale to some ship wrecks, catching live bonita and blue runners on the way to use for dropping on the wrecks. Our first 2 passes over the relic with the live bonita got us 2 barracudas. Running further south to another wreck at a depth of 235 feet our first drop was using a 30-foot leader and a12/0 circle hook. That 1st line in had Kevin jumping into the chair, fighting the fish all the way up to the boat. The 20-minute struggle landed a 50-lb amberjack. We made 3 more drops over the site and Jeff was able to haul one in as well.

Yesterday Paul and I fished with Charles, Jim, and Bob from Ohio. We left the dock at 9:30 AM and headed south for the wrecks, catching baits to fill the well along the way. Our closest ship wreck was at 220 feet and we caught a 20-lb amberjack. We released this fish and hit every wreck from 100 to 300 feet and finished the day with 5 amberjack, a small silky shark, and a monster barracuda.

Tight Lines!

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.
