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

February 12, 2011

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!

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.
