The last 4 days of fishing out of Ft. Lauderdale have been fantastic; some of the best fishing I've ever seen. The morning trip on the 25th had us catching lots of blackfin tuna, with 4 fish weighing over 10-lbs. each and 3 nice mahi-mahi of about the same size. After catching lunch and dinner it was time to kick it up a notch and go for something a little bigger. Our clients were excited when we hooked them up with a beautiful 6-foot sailfish to round out a great morning of sportfishing.
Another clear and sunny day greeted us on the morning of April 26 and we began fishing on the troll. For the first couple of hours we had been using sea witch lures with fresh-cut bonito strips on #4 and #6 planers, and 4 bonito strip set-ups on our outriggers- maximum coverage for the best results. King mackerel were snapping like crazy and we kept seven of the larger ones and a few smaller blackfin tuna. We were nicely warmed-up and Capt. Pauly and I decided to send up the kites. No sooner did we get our left side bait out when a 5-foot sailfish was eating it! Pauly started reeling in immediately but the fish was wrapped up in the line and managed to jump off. We took about an hour to get the rest of our spread set up properly in about 170-feet of water. Well worth the effort, we watched as a fat 6-foot hammerhead shark swam up to our right long kite bait and take it- a perfect catch to end an awesome day of fishing.
We've had some fantastic weather for fishing and the morning of the 27th was more of the same. Capt. Pauly and I had a split group on the boat looking to catch "... something big...", and nobody was disappointed. Many large fish are migrating past southern Florida now and we hooked up with a few on Wednesday. "Something big " turned out to be a HEAVY 10-foot hammerhead shark, a fish they thought they'd only catch in their dreams! The dream continued that morning as the guys also hooked up with 2 large sailfish that managed to throw the hook- not a bad score for a half days fishing.
We were anxious to get out again in the afternoon and returned to where we had such good luck earlier in the day.Trolling out to where we had been kept us busy catching kingfish, bonito, and blackfin tuna for a few hours. Success was with us again when we sent up the kite rigs and were rewarded with a 25-lb. cobia, a beautiful fish. Another day in paradise fishing right out in front of the beaches of Ft. Lauderdale!
Our all-day drift boat trip on Thursday was able to take advantage of the number of large fish passing through this time of year. No surprise at hooking up mahi-mahi and blackfin tuna, but the 7-foot hammerhead shark they caught was a thrill for everyone on board.
Our 36-foot Invincible, the Lady Pamela 5, was out on a 6-hour trip with "Let's Take A Hero Fishing". Capt. Tex caught a few mahi-mahi and won a tournament for a happy sailor with a nice sized sailfish.
The weather is great and we're having some of the best fishing we can remember- sharks, snapper, and sailfish are all in town and we're out everyday catching them! Join us for a fantastic day of fishing here in Ft. Lauderdale Florida.
