Great Deep Sea Fishing

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

There are many things that make a great deep sea fishing trip. The first, of course, is fish. But just catching fish doesn't always make a great deep sea fishing excursion… unless you have the right people.

It just so happens those people were on board today. They hadn't done any ocean fishing and didn't have much experience with fishing at all. Our rods and reels are a bit heavier than what most people use in fresh water for Bluegills and Perch.

So we ventured out to sea with 2 Bob's, Sean, Luanne and Doris for their first, and hopefully, great deep sea fishing trip. And to say the fish were biting is an understatement!

With only one line in the water, Captain Adam turned to put out the second line and we had our first strike! A nice sized Kingfish was on. Directions for using the gear had already been done but some adjustments were refined as we began catching fish after fish.
A few were lost and as most folks do, they asked if they had done something wrong. When the fish bite like this? Really, who cares if they did or didn't. Have fun and enjoy the action. And this went on for quite some time.

Meandering south to fish a wreck we like, we caught fish most the way. Our warm weather had our guests happy when the action slowed, they had time to drink some water or a beer. We had a few of the Bonitos we caught in the tubes alive for bait at the wreck. It was time to try for something big!

Our first bite on the livie came instantly! We've no idea what it was other than big! It broke the wire and we took time to re-rig for another try.

This time we connected to this huge Barracuda. It turned out to be a bucket list thing for Bob #1 and his prize is pictured at the top of this report. A real stud fish and a very happy Bob!

Another wreck produced a large Amberjack and with our box teaming with fish, we began our trip home.

Our guests were tired but happy that their first ocean trip is such a great deep sea fishing adventure. Are they just lucky folks? They sure were today…
