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.

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!
