Nighttime Snapper Fishing

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

When the nighttime anchor snapper trip comes in with a catch like this? I just have to post the picture… Captain Jen, her mate Dominic and the 10 passengers had a great time with the action last night. While the evening trip has been very slow for customers, especially during the week, you can see the group reaped the rewards of a great night of fishing.

Daytime fishing on the Drift fishing boat has been a mixed bag, as have the sport fishing boats. The drift boat is usually in the area of the reef and a variety of species have been biting. A variety of snappers, a few Grouper, Porgy's and other reef fish have been giving us some action. Vertical jigs have been producing some good Tuna bites in the deeper water where we catch Vermillion Snappers. Kingfish and Bonito round out the catch.

Sport fishing has been a bit different. Kings and Bonito have been in the reef area with decent sized Tuna out a bit deeper. Mahi-mahi have been biting on and off in recent days. You can find them one and the next they are nowhere to be found. A 6 or 8 hour trip is best if Dolphin is your targeted species.

We have also been seeing and catching some Sailfish on the troll. This time of year is very good for catching these gamefish while trolling. In the weeks to come, we'll be switching to live bait to taget these. No matter how you hook them, they are always a ball to catch!

That's about all for today. We have a few Swordfish trips coming up next week that we are very much looking forward to. Check back and see how we do.
