Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report
It's a great time of year with all kinds of fish jumping on the line. Sailfish, dolphin, tuna, wahoo, amberjacks, sharks, tilefish and more are biting on our sportfishing charters this month. It's one of the best months of fishing of the whole year in south Florida where just about everything is biting. Just this week, we've had an awesome sailfish bite with some mahi-mahi mixed in.
Our drift fishing trips are doing great too. Lots of snappers, groupers, porgies, jacks and grunts are being caught. On our drift fishing trips we mainly go bottom fishing for snappers and other bottom fish species on the reef. It's a great way to get out on the water and catch some fish without having to spend the big money to do a sportfishing charter. Both morning and afternoon trips do drift fishing and our night trip does anchor fishing. Anchor fishing is great because it allows us to use chum to get the fish to swim right up to the boat. This technique works great because the longer you chum the water, the better the chum starts working and you can catch more and more fish.
On our sportfishing charters, we're doing good either trolling or wreck fishing. Trolling is great because it allows us to cover a lot of territory and catch a bunch of fish. You can catch anything when trolling, be it kingfish, bonitos, tuna, mahi-mahi or even sailfish. Wreck fishing is also very good this time of year with lots of amberjacks and groupers biting. The fish get very aggressive around the wrecks this season. On our half day charters, we usually have time do some trolling and some wreck fishing. If you're up for it, we may even do some shark fishing as there are some monster sharks around this month as well.
This is a superb month to go deep sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale. The weather is great, action is hot and any day you get to go fishing is a great day. I'll sea you on the water.
