Ft Lauderdale fishing charters

August 27, 2012

As you might expect, with Tropical Storm Isaac moving through our area, the weather was too rough to go out in the ocean. However, we were able to put together a nice inshore charter. The trip was a little wet because of rain bands blowing through, but we anchored up and got some dead baits out in a few snook and tarpon hot spots. We had no snook bites, but we jumped off three nice tarpon in the intracoastal waterway here in Fort Lauderdale. We even caught a nice 30 lb. tarpon right back at the dock!

The good news is that even if the weather is bad offshore there is still is a little bit of inshore fishing that can be done here in south Florida. Now that the storm has passed the offshore fishing should start to pick up over the next several days. Most important today though, is that our thoughts are with our fishing friends in the Florida panhandle, coastal Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana as they brace for Hurricane Isaac. We are hoping for the best for their safety and welfare.

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!
