Springtime is here in Ft. Lauderdale, and so are the mahi-mahi! Today was clear and sunny as we headed straight out of the port to do some trolling. We were at 200-300 feet using bonito strips when we hooked up on a few big dolphin- a good start on a beautiful day. For the most part we fished right out front, catching tuna, kingfish, and wahoo of various sizes throughout the day.

Dave- Pauly couldn't remember a whole lot for Tuesday's trip. Obviously some reports will be better than others. Again, I will make contact with the captains in a more timely manner and get the information to do the reports smoothly.

This mornings trip had some great weather out of Ft. Lauderdale for Gary and Jim from Chicago. The seas were flat calm as we trolled south, using bonito strips on planers. We were in about 100-110 feet of water when the kingfish started to bite and we landed 4 nice ones. The guys were looking for a shark but happy to get the action going and get warmed up. Blackfin tuna were next, and we went to 200-300 feet and caught a few keepers. At 350 feet there was nothing happening and we ran inshore a little bit to 150 where we hooked up and kept some nice mahi-mahi.

The afternoon fishing was in the same areas and we caught another 4 kings. Our clients were also happy with the 30-lb black grouper, even though we had to release the big fish as he was out of season. A little further south and we were wreck fishing in about 100-140 feet of water using live bonitos. At this spot we hooked up a few more kings and barracuda, including one at 54 inches. A beautiful day and some great fishing-

Tight lines!
