Shark Fishing Is Here

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.

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.
