Shark Fishing Ft Lauderdale

February 14, 2014


On Valentine’s Day today we took out Mr. Dunn, who fishes with us multiple times a year. We were set up for an eight hour fishing trip but Mr. Dunn couldn’t make it to the boat until11:30 am so we left the dock quite late. Luckily we had a 3 knot north current so we rolled up to the north offshore of Pompano pretty quick. We trolled around and caught a few bonitos, a kingfish and a couple of blackfin tunas. We had live baits on board so we moved out to a wreck in deeper water looking to catch a couple of big amberjacks. While we were reeling in one of the big AJs an even bigger fish grabbed it and the fight was on, and with only a monofilament leader!. It was an hour and a half battle before we caught sight of the 400 lb bull shark that had consumed the 30 lb AJ. This was a massive fish and a catch that made for one killer of a day on the water.

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
