Bonito Madness off the coast of South Florida

Capt. Taco Perez

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Trolling the Reef aboard Hooked Up BONITIO MADDNESS

Today we had 3 couple down from Illinois to get away from home for a few days and enjoy some of our great sunny South Florida weather.
We had Clayton and Lacey, Wade and Megan and Lane and Michelle.
They were looking forward to enjoying the day on the water and bending the rod and if we could get some good eating fish that would be a bonuses.

We started out catching some live baits witch every seemed to have a ball just catching them since the fish back home were about the same size as these.
Ok so it was time to try for something a bit bigger.
So we set out a couple rods deep on our planner boards and a few baits skipping across the surface.
Now usually I like to mention witch rods were working best but today it did not seem to matter we were getting covered up with 2 and some times 3 fish at a time.

THE BONITOS WERE CHEWING and everyone was having a blast not only reeling them in but they were all taking turns on the leaders witch 2 of the were about 60 feet long and the were hand lines them in.
Some how by the grace of god 2 black fin tunas managed to beat the bonitos to the bait so we did catch some sushi for dinner as well.

Hi my name is Taco and I run one of the best charter fishing boats down here in South Florida. WHY? Because Iíve been fishing the waters down here since 1969 and I started at the bottom and worked my way up the ladder. I know what it is like to read a web site and than once you get to boat things are not as you thought they would be. Not here I say it like it is. No surprises. Iíve got a 45 foot Hatteras with a big cock pit. Fully aircondishened and refrigerated. Big comfortable platform.
