Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing Report

Fishing in Fort Lauderdale was great today. We couldn’t have asked for better weather and I was working the pit which I don’t get to do much. As soon as we cleared Port Everglades we ran to the large container ship offshore to catch speedos for live bait. After we got our live bait situation covered, we bounced from ship wreck to ship wreck making drops. Our first and second drop, no bite. On our third drop, we got a bite but the fish fell off. On our fourth drop, a huge Barracuda ate the whole speedo. After our Barracuda catch, we headed into 200 ft of water and caught a 30″ Almaco Jack, we expertly let him go shortly after the catch. Our last spot of the day produced a large Warsaw Grouper bite.

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.
