Cold Front Fishing In Fort Lauderdale

Capt. Vinnie Sacks
November 8, 2021
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello everyone Capt. Vinnie here. Winter time fishing is just begging here in Fort Lauderdale and thats what this weeks report is about so lets get started. This week in Fort Lauderdale we recently had a big time cold front that just came through and for us here the temperatures have been around 57 in the morning to a comfortable 68, now for us thats chilly but for. most people that come down to fish with us it is not. The fishing has been very good this week plenty of fish have been biting, the main fish this week again like last week is tuna, mostly skipjack tuna, skipjack tuna are very hard fighters and excellent table fare specially if your someone that likes sushi like myself its a great fish to eat this way. We have been catching them in depths of **hidden content** feet of water primarily on surface baits like small feathers and mylar seawitches. While fishing those depths there also has been quite a good amount of mahi mahi around as well now this is not season for these fish so there are not somewhat prevalent but there has been a few around and the ones we have been caching are very nice sized averaging anywhere from 10-12lbs same baits we are using for tuna are what we have been catching the mahi on also. Moving a little bit the king mackeral have recently showed up and have been biting pretty well, best depths for them have been 80-150 feet of water and our best baits this week for them have been seawitches with bonito strips and spoons fished on a planer to take the baits below the surface and into the strike zone. Also with the cold fronts one of the main fish that everyone is looking to catch is sailfish and they are starting to make an appearance right off the coast of Fort Lauderdale. When we have cold fronts it tends to make sailfish want to move and feed and they have been somewhat plentiful the last few days due to the cooler temperatures. Live bait has been the best thing to use to target the sailfish but trolled baits like ballyhoo and strips baits are a close 2nd. The sailfish have been showering baitfish all over and can sometimes be sight fished as well. The sailfish bite should start to get even better as we get closer towards December. Lots of different fish biting just off the coast of fort Lauderdale so if your looking to do some deep sea fishing now is a great time to do so. This week we have some great pictures of some recent deep sea fishing trips that took place just off the coast of Fort Lauderdale so be sure to check those out. We have some availability left for the month of November so if your looking to fish its a great time.
