Fishing Fort Lauderdale aboard Hooked Up

Capt. Taco Perez
October 7, 2013
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Aug 15
Today we had a ball fishing with Bill and Angee along with their son Luke and 2 daughters Claire and Sydney all from Michigan.
This started out being a 3-quarter day trip but the fish were biting and everyone was having a ball so we stayed all day and caught a ton of bonitos and kingfish.
Later in the day we switched to live bait fishing along with a couple shark baits set down deep.
All at once our deep bait that we were using a balloon as a bobber went down and BAM we were Hooked Up. After just a few min up popped this shark and at first we had no idea what kind of shark it was BUT just as we identified it to be a tiger shark it spit the hook @%#^&*
Than just as fast as it spit the hook we got a bite on one of our shark baits that was on the surface. As we were reeling it toward the boat we seen it was the same shark and once again he spit the hook @$$#@%$ and double #%#%&
Than once again we saw him looking for more bait! This shark wanted more than enough and by god we were going to give it to him.
Finally on the 3rd shot he stayed Hooked and we slid him in through the tuna door for a quick measurement and a few pictures and slid him right back out to fight again another day.
(Bill the pictures we are waiting!!)
This tiger shark was 64 inches not a monster but a real cool looking shark with all his strips and this huge mouth not to mention some cool looking teeth.
After some high fiving and hand shaking we went back to fishing. Now fishing had slowed down a bit so we decided to move out to deeper water.
As we set up in 350 feet of water BAM again we got Hooked Up and this shark turned out to be a big silky shark.
Bill, Angee and the rest of the gang thanks so much you guys were truly a ball to fish with.

Today we had a banner day fishing with Jim, Kyle, Brodie and Hunter all from Ohio.
We started out trolling the reef and landing a hand full of bonitos.
Ok now that the skunk was out of the box time to go for the big one. Ob should I say the big ones!!
We set our kites with live baits suspended from them along with a couple shark baits set down deep.
Kyle ended up catching a sailfish but Brodie came back with a monster 88-inch sailfish. And Hunter caught a hammerhead shark along with a big bull shark.

Today we fished with John and Both from Alexandria Virginia.
Today was big or bust so we went right to kite fishing with 4 live baits suspended from the kites.
All of a sudden out of nowhere up popped a sailfish and just like that we were Hooked Up.
15 min later we had this big sailfish to the side of the boat.

We went right for reef fishing looking for action and keeping the rods bent as much as possible.
As we were trying to set out our planner boards to troll the reef the bonitos we hitting before we could even get set up.
We ended up with 1,000,000 bonitos and1 kingfish along with a Mahia Mahia.
Now that's what we call a busy day trolling the reef.

Today we fished with Chris and Amy from Baltimore, Heather from Atlanta, Bill and Randy from parts unknown.
Action was what we all had in mind so we went right to trolling the reef with 2 planner boards down deep 3 baits on the surface.
While we caught the usual a few king fish and a box full of bonitos we got surprised with a big mutton snapper to boot.
Thanks again to all of our anglers this August for fishing with us aboard the Hooked up off the coast of Sunny South Florida.

Hi my name is Taco and I run one of the best charter fishing boats down here in South Florida. WHY? Because Iíve been fishing the waters down here since 1969 and I started at the bottom and worked my way up the ladder. I know what it is like to read a web site and than once you get to boat things are not as you thought they would be. Not here I say it like it is. No surprises. Iíve got a 45 foot Hatteras with a big cock pit. Fully aircondishened and refrigerated. Big comfortable platform.
