Fort Lauderdale Wreck Fishing – BIG Black Grouper & Amberjack fish

January 23, 2011

January 21, 2011

Today, Leo and I had a full day fishing trip with George and his wife from Arizona. We left the dock at 9AM and George hoped for a Swordfish or Sailfish while fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The live bait such as Pinfish and Bluerunners were biting nicely. Trolling to the south produced two Bonito fish. The bite on the troll was pretty slow so we moved into kite fishing with live goggle eyes and whole bonito fish on the bottom. Live bait kite fishing wasn’t producing any bites so we moved into wreck fishing. We made our first drop of the day in 200 ft of water and hooked a Black Grouper on a live bonito. George did one helluva job with his catch and release. Shortly after, George reeled in a Greater Amberjack fish. On our way back to the dock, I was running the beach and saw a Sailfish in 10 ft of water. Leo pitched a bait but the fish wasn’t interested in eating.

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.
