Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Friday Night Report
Dateline November 27th, 2010

As I arrived at the Sea Legs III , the parking lot was full with bustling fisherman as the afternoon trip was just leaving. Kenny and Jimmy were cleaning a table full of fish that came up from a afternoon of deep sea fishing. Lots of Lane Snappers, Mahogany Snappers and Grunts were caught. Everyone caught 2-4 fish on that trip and a lot more were thrown back. Jimmy brought up a huge Cobia on a whole squid rigged on a long line. Customers seemed to be walking away happy as they promised to be back again on another trip.

The expectations were high as we left for our night of deep sea fishing. Not as many fisherman as expected on this holiday weekend but we left the dock with about 12 fairs. The seas were calm but the southwest winds with South and offshore currents made it difficult to flat line. The moon was huge as is was glowing with pink and purple hazes in the horizon. On the first spot I brought up a 4 pound mutton on a Ballyhoo plug. Lots of grunts were coming up as well, but the Yellowtails didn't want any part of any bait thrown at them.

The second spot I brought up a nice Mangrove Snappers about 4 pounds and then another Mangrove about 3 pounds , each on the same long line with Ballyhoo plugs on the bottom. The Yellowtails were still sleeping and the Captain decided to head for shallower water.

We were in about 30 feet of water on the last spot and the tails finally woke up. Kenny brought up a nice Mangrove and lots of tails. Billy ended the night with 8 decent sized tails all of his tails were caught on plugs. We ran out of chum but it was hard to leave the spot when the fish were biting. We ended up staying an extra hour as we threw in Ballyheads and left over Silversides to keep the tails close. All in all we had a decent night. I won the fish pool and left with Mutton, 2 Mangraves and 5 yellow tails.
