fishing Fort Lauderdale , Miami Fishing Charters,

Today Mike from Texas joined Justin and I on a 6 hour trip from 11am-5pm, and he had a fishing trip as big as the state he hails from! Mike’s goal was to catch a big fish so we went right to shark fishing. One hour later we got the first bite. It was on one of the big 130 Penn Internationals and the line was just screaming off the reel. This was the monster fish Mike was looking for but after 30 minutes of battling the brute he was tired. He wanted a big fish but I’m not sure he wanted one as big as hooked up! He hung in there though, and he brought what turned out to be a huge hammerhead to the boat. Great catch. We then got a second bite on a top bait by a dusky shark.

Mike had succeeded in getting those big fish in his pocket so we went trolling further offshore and got into a huge school of blackfin tunas. We caught the first fish, one about 10lbs, then all of a sudden there where thousands of tunas there! It was quite a site! We could have filled the boat tunas! What an awesome 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!
