FT LAUDERDALE FISHING REPORT AUG 24Posted on: August 26, 2011
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.
