Fort Lauderdale Fishing at Its Finest

October 3, 2012

September 27, 2012

This morning was a sharkfishing trip for Captain JJ and Ray. The crew caught a few fresh baits then moved out to 350 feet of water. It was a perfect weather day for this type of fishing, but it took a long time they finally got a bite. Angler John finally got the fight he was looking for, as a 200 lb tiger shark took the bait. Though frequently seen in the Bahamas, tiger sharks are rarely seen around here. Nice catch!

The afternoon trip saw Captain JJ and Ray trolling fresh bonito strips and ballyhoo behind planer boards. They were fishing along the third reef edge out to 300 feet of water. The afternoon catch was nice mix of kingfish and blackfin tunas. They also landed a few mahi-mahi out in the deeper water.

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.
