Wahoo Fishing Is Getting Good, Fall Is Coming. - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Wahoo Fishing Is Getting Good, Fall Is Coming.

August 24, 2016

The last few weeks have been HOT and I mean upper 90 degrees.  This means the fishing has been best on the morning and evening trips.  With the recent full moon, wahoo have been our target and it has been really good.  High speed trolling as well as early morning live baiting has been working best.

The fall is right around the corner and our repeat customers are already booking up September and October.  The mullet run is a bait migration that comes right down our beach by the miillons and everything follows them including tarpon, snook, sharks and much more.  The sailfish are also going to be coming into the area with the dropping temperatures.

As I write this, the local meteorologist are saying the Bahamas may get hit with a tropical storm this weekend.  For us, this usually stirs up the fishing big time and sometimes starts the fall migration early.  A mix up in weather kicks the fish to start moving, so i expect the first week of September to be the start of this whole phenomenon that happens in Fort Lauderdale.  Stay tuned for our Mullet Run video coming out before, during and after.  I’ll keep everyone posted as we are fishing it with customers just about everyday for monster tarpon.

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.
