Fort Lauderdale Sailfish Fishing = solid bite!

November 14, 2010

November 10 – 12, 2010

Sailfish Fishing in Fort Lauderdale at it’s finest.

My sail fishing team has been preparing (pre-fishing) for the world famous Miami Sailfish Cup Sail fishing Tournament with a $500,000 cash prize. On Friday, we ran north and went 8 for 10 (caught 8 fish with a total of 10 bites) on the Sailfish bite, all of the bites being singles. On Saturday we ran back to the north and fished live goggle eyes and threadfins. We caught 6 Sailfish with a total of 8 bites by 4:30pm. Today we ran back up north and caught 4 single Sailfish and landed a double header, giving us a total of 6 Sailfish. The Sailfish weren’t the only species plucking at our bait today, either. We also caught a 20 lb Wahoo, a 23 lb King Mackerel and 4 nice size Mahi – Mahi all over 15 lb’s.

Tight Lines and good luck to everyone fishing in the Miami Sailfish Cup.

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.
