Mahi MAhi fishing Red Hot South Florida

The great fall fishing has continued this week off Ft. Lauderdale. The mullet run is still going strong with pods of bait moving along the beach all the way to outside of the reef edge. The Lady Pamela II has been averaging two sailfish a trip, with some big mahi-mahi working relatively near shore in the 200-300 foot depth range, grabbing the sailfish baits. On the reef, we are seeing some big king mackerel and blackfin tunas, particularly around the bait pods. The spanish mackerel and tarpon have been all over the mullet schools that are in close to the beach, but we have not been targeting those species this week because of so much hot action offshore. What a terrible predicament; we have to choose what species we want to catch during the 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!
