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.

 

TESTIMONIALS

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.
