Springtime is here in Ft. Lauderdale, and so are the mahi-mahi! Today was clear and sunny as we headed straight out of the port to do some trolling. We were at 200-300 feet using bonito strips when we hooked up on a few big dolphin- a good start on a beautiful day. For the most part we fished right out front, catching tuna, kingfish, and wahoo of various sizes throughout the day.

Dave- Pauly couldn’t remember a whole lot for Tuesday’s trip. Obviously some reports will be better than others. Again, I will make contact with the captains in a more timely manner and get the information to do the reports smoothly.

This mornings trip had some great weather out of Ft. Lauderdale for Gary and Jim from Chicago. The seas were flat calm as we trolled south, using bonito strips on planers. We were in about 100-110 feet of water when the kingfish started to bite and we landed 4 nice ones. The guys were looking for a shark but happy to get the action going and get warmed up. Blackfin tuna were next, and we went to 200-300 feet and caught a few keepers. At 350 feet there was nothing happening and we ran inshore a little bit to 150 where we hooked up and kept some nice mahi-mahi.

The afternoon fishing was in the same areas and we caught another 4 kings. Our clients were also happy with the 30-lb black grouper, even though we had to release the big fish as he was out of season. A little further south and we were wreck fishing in about 100-140 feet of water using live bonitos. At this spot we hooked up a few more kings and barracuda, including one at 54 inches. A beautiful day and some great fishing-

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.
