Fort Lauderdale Sailfishing – 18 for 25 right off Fort Lauderdale Beach!

January 16, 2011

January 13th, 2011

Today was one of the most successful fun fishing days I have ever had. A good fishing buddy of mine, Ed, Drew of the My Doris fishing team and myself went fishing just north of Port Everglades aboard Ed’s 54 Viking Sport fishing boat. We filled the live well with 5 dozen goggle eyes and a few pilchards for live bait. It was blowing NW 5-20 mph, with a 3-4 ft seas. By 8 AM, we were situated with two kites and six baits in the water. Our first four bites were duds; they ate and fell off immediately. After our 4th tease, we started actually catching the fish and having fun. To make a very long story short, we went 18 for 25 on the Sailfish right out front of Fort Lauderdale Beach.

TESTIMONIALS

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.
