Excellent Night Fishing Aboard the Catch My Drift

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

The snapper bite at night is on fire. Lots of mangroves and yellowtail snappers are biting while anchor fishing and chumming the waters. While the daytime bite has been pretty good, the snappers really venture out far and wide in search of food and the bite has really lit up on our night trips.
We fish every night starting at 7:30pm. This is the perfect time to fish in south Florida with no sun to beat on you and take your energy. Nights are generally cool, calm and peaceful for fishing.

This week, yellowtails are biting off the chain. When we first anchor up, it takes a little while to get the snappers chummed up and feeding aggressively. But once the bite turns on, they bite and they bite in numbers. You can load your box up in a hurry once the bite turns on. Mixed in with the yellowtails, usually caught by those anglers fishing the bottom, are the mangroves and the possible mutton snapper. An odd grouper or two have been biting at night on our trips this week too.

You never know what might bite at night. Besides our main target of snappers, a few big game fish such as sharks and cobias are caught this season. They bite when you least expect it and sometimes they travel in schools so you get more than one on the line at a time. That's exciting, when 2 or 3 people get hooked up simultaneously with large fish. Fun, Fun, Fun.

Good action on the daytime trips too, plenty of snappers with some kingfish and an oddball tuna or mahi mixed in. But the night trip is my favorite and the subject of this week's report. Tight lines everyone. I'll sea you on the water.
