Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report October 11 fishing

October 11, 2012

Donna, John, and Alex joined me for a four hour charter on the Lady Pamela II, here in Fort Lauderdale. We started the trip out by trolling on the reef and in the first hour only caught one kingfish. We stuck with it though, and 45 minutes later we caught a blackfin tuna. There was a northwest wind today and it was blowing 20 to 25 knots against a strong north current so the seas offshore were pretty rough. Regardless, there was a nice current edge outside so we decided to brave the seas and look for better action. Right off the bat we caught a nice 20 lb wahoo, then missed a sailfish bite. We kept trolling out and another saw sailfish tailing down sea. It took the bait two times but we couldn’t get a hookup. Finally, twenty minutes before reeling up the lines John hooked a nice sailfish right out in front of Fort Lauderdale. Not too bad considering the weather. We had three bites from sailfish and caught one, plus kingfish and blackfin tuna trolling off Fort Lauderdale.

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!
