Small Eye Thresher Shark Caught - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Small Eye Thresher Shark Caught

July 6, 2016

The sportfishing has heated up and so have the temps in South Florida.  Don’t worry all our boats have full ice cold a/c for those that need to take a break from the heat while fishing.

Offshore we have been catching bonito, sharks, and blackfin tunas with some big kingfish mixed in.  We lost about a 60 pound cobia at the boat the other day, so they are starting to show up too.

The mahi have been a little scarce, but I suspect they are much further offshore and will start to push in when we get a good east wind.

The highlight of the week was a small eye thresher shark we caught.  This beautiful fish was caught on our shark fishing charter, with our repeat customers who have fished with us many times.  It started out slow, but Captain Mark knew it was a thresher as soon as the line started to scream.

Check out the video report with Captain David.



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!
