Sea Legs III Friday Night October 8th,2010

Capt. Kenny Hawkins
October 9, 2010
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

The winds finally died down last night and the seas were relatively calm at about 1 to 3 feet. The winds blew out of the NE at about 10 knots which caused the Sea Legs III to swing back and forth. I had a corner stern spot on the starboard side. On most nights it would be the premier spot However, because of the swinging boat and the south current , I couldn't do a lot there. I ended up moving and taking an empty spot on the side of the boat. I played with the current and the swinging boat all night. Everyone on the Sea Legs III caught fish as we deep sea fished in about 60-80 feet of water and only made 1 move all night. The depth finder was lit up with tons of fish. The fisherman on the sides of the Sea Legs did just as good if not better than the deep sea fisherman on the stern. It was difficult to flat line as you really had to compensate for the swing of the boat. We ended up with about 160 snappers between 20 deep sea fishing enthusiasts. A few Mutton Snappers were brought up as the tempuratures dropped. We brought in about 5 short Muttons and 3 keeper Muttons. A nice short Red Grouper that was 18 inches was caught and released. There was a man and his wife on the port side who were obviously new to deep sea fishing brought in fish every time their bait hit the water. The mates had a lot to do with their success as either Billy or Kelly was next to them most of the night instructing them on one thing or another. Over all the Sea Legs had a fairly good night, better night than most other head boat or party boat in South Florida especially with the given conditions. Among the regulars Eddie ended the night as high hood with 14 Yellow Tails(kept only his limit). Jimmy caught his limit at 10. Jesus had 8. Sehoon had 6. George had 5 yellow tails. For the regulars on the stern positions it was a tough night. but the rest of the boat did well as we brought a lot of yellow tails and Mangroves off the bottom.

Best way to decide which boat to go deeep sea fishing or drift fishing is to find out who catches more fish. Sea Legs III catches fish. Just ask any mate on the other boats in Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Miami or anywhere in Southe Florida including the Florida Keys. They will all tell you that the Sea Legs III is the best deep sea fishing or drift fishing boat in all of South Florida.
