Ft. Lauderdale Fishing Report/ daily

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Ft. Lauderdale Charter Fishing/ Daily Blog
Thursday, February 19, 2010

Ft. Lauderdale fishing charters aren't always about "the BIG ones" or even the smaller ones. Sometimes they are strictly for the little guys, both the kids and the fish. That is exactly what today's trip was about. Pete, from Chicago, my home town, his brother Matt and the 4 children between them wanted a day of action. With the ages of the kids, they would only be able to handle the smaller rods and we were off to search for pure action in the form of small bait fish.
A stop by the bridge got us just that. While the bite wasn't great, almost always was at least one youngster connected with something. I have to say it is a ball watching these small kids battle these little fish on light tackle. Rods bent, handles turning in square circles as they battle the equipment and land Pinfish after Pinfish. With the tide beginning to turn and the current failing, we went outside to the anchor balls to try our luck there.
The bite was slower but the fish were different. A few Parrot fish were caught, one so brightly colored and large, it almost looked like a piece of art, like painted porcelain rather than a live fish. Many fish were seen but only a few caught and after a bit, we decided to move back inside and try again at the bridge for a little more action before returning to the dock.
The current was beginning again and we weren't disappointed as we caught a few more Pinfish, some Blue Runners, a Spot and French Grunt. Each new species was examined and discussed by the kids before releasing it and some pictures were taken.
With kids this age, trying to get a shot of them doing all this was quite the task. I did the best I could, they just don't sit still long. LOL
