Fort Lauderdale Fishing – 7 ft Tiger Shark while fishing in Fort Lauderdale!

February 5th, 2011

Greg and his son came fishing on a 6 hour trip in Fort Lauderdale for a bachelor party. We left the dock at 8AM and filled the well with live goggle eyes before heading offshore. Once we reached 150 ft of water, we sent the kites in the air with live goggle eyes dangling on the surface. Within 2 hours into the trip, we caught a Sailfish and a few King Mackerel. Not too long after, about a 7 ft Tiger Shark came up and plucked at our bait 3 times, but never hooked itself. It was a bummer because we rarely see Tiger Sharks in Fort Lauderdale. However, it was still awesome to watch it eat.

Tight Lines!

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!
