Winter is here! Dolphin, wahoo and sailfish are out there for the daring. The last two weeks in December were red hot. The winds and cold fronts pushed through from the north and made the fish head south. With these cold snaps, the sailfish bite has been phenomenal.
Starting the New Year, wreck fishing up and down the coast has been great as well. Fort Lauderdale is known for large shipwrecks that hold a variety of fish. Grouper, snapper, amberjacks, cobias, barracudas, king fish and big game sharks are just some of the few.
Heading out on January 1st , the Lady Pamela II crew bought a dozen goggle eyes and headed off shore to find a small eddy of lighter water. Kites were up off the edge with live goggs and immediately hooked double-header sails.
