Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing

Today, Captain Paul and I went deep sea fishing at 1 PM on a 4 hour fishing charter. Live bait was a must so we made a pit stop at the can for speedos and bluerunners. It was short and sweet, we loaded up on live bait and hit the road. We ran to the south, dropped our first bait down and got the bite immediately. Captain Paul gave it all he had but the fish released itself. Round two was an instant bite by a 50lb Warsaw Grouper. Round three produced a very nice bite by a 40lb Amberjack. The action didn’t stop there. Right after we caught the Amberjack, a 6 ft Hammerhead Shark was tailing on the surface within feet from the boat. We pitched a bait right in front of it, but no reaction. I guess he wasn’t hungry.

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.
