Fishing Report for Ft. Lauderdale & Port Everglades

Capt. Cary Hanna
July 12, 2003
Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fast current and fast fish

We fished a few times this week on Monday and then on Friday. On Monday we had a 5-6 knot current running north full force in as shallow as 80 feet of water. The bite was on with a Sailfish on the first drift. The fish had the advantage as they ran down current making them feel 3 times as big as we reeled them in. Kingfish, Bonita and Blackfin Tuna were also biting. By the end of the day we reached Hillsborough inlet and rode the intracoastal all the back to our Port. Tuesday the current was still moving fast and the fish were there, reports of big Mutton snappers up to 10 pounds were being caught right on the reef. On Friday evening we ventured out at 4 pm in search for Dolphin, right away we found a great weedline that was miles long and started working it. Then we finished off the evening on the reef were the current finally slowed down to less than 1 knot and watched a beautiful sunset disapear. The week of the 13th through the 20th we will be in Belize and Rotan to get a bit of relaxation. When we get back we will be getting ready for the "Dark side of the moon, leg II Swordfishing contest which will be held on June 26th, Saturday night.

Till next Tide, Captain Cary Hanna
