Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Ft. Lauderdale Fishing/ Daily Blog
March 8 -14, 2010

Ft. Lauderdale did not off much in the way of fish OR weather this week. With cloudy conditions, some rain and high winds, both the tourists and the fish were laying low. We had some great people on board for fishing trips and almost all were met with the same results which is why I am putting these together.
Trolling and live bait fishing had been slow. Occasional Bonito, the rare Kingfish or two and an infrequent shot at a Sailfish here and there. The days were long and the fishing was slow, but a bright spot was available for those whom wished to try for a big fish.
Sharks were making their move through the area in fair numbers. Sometimes waiting an hour or so for a bite was usual. Other times, the "insta-bite" as we call it, a bite that comes before the bait is set in place occurs.
Just getting the bite does not assure you of catching one of these beasts, as it is in any type of fishing. Many things can happen to derail the landing of one of these fish. With their awesome power and unrelenting energy that seems endless, some battles go on for over an hour. Most can be brought to the boat in less though, if it suits the fish.
These sharks, mostly Hammerheads, ranged from around 5' to the Great Hammerhead we caught that was over 12'. Tiger and Sand Bar sharks were also caught as well.
I'm sorry to say that between some rough days and the energy these fish have next to the boat, I was not able to capture many pictures. This attached picture came from one of our customer's camera.

We look forward to the fishing improving and these sea monsters to be around for the next few months.
