Aug 24


Duane and family came fishing yesterday morning for some south Florida fun. It was time to try their luck deep sea fishing while here on vacation. Our first stop was to fill our 100 gallon live well with a few live blue runners and small bonitos as fresh bait for the trip. We started our first troll with two baits on planer boards. The planers are designed to bring baits to 65 feet below the surface. These deep baits are irresistible to king mackerel, wahoo, and blackfin tunas. We also put out four top baits, each skipping nicely across the top of the water. Today the fish were biting between 140 ft and 350 feet where a nice north current was running. We fished the edge of the current break and caught a few nice big bonitos, three kings and a feisty 25 lb wahoo. That wahoo was a nice end to the trip. Hurricane Irene is due to stir up the weather later this week so this turned out to be a nice fishin’ day.

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!
