None stop action off fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report

Bonito mania deep sea fishing Fort Lauderdale

WOW what a blast deep sea fishing today with none stop action.
We had a shared charter today with Broderick and his daughter Gabrielle from Detroit Michigan along with Aaron and his friend Kevin both from Iowa

We started out trolling and with less than a minute of having the baits in the water we were Hooked Up.
And yep that's how our day started and it was one or 2 or even 3 bonitos on at the same time. Some how a couple kingfish got in there and grabbed our baits but the bonitos were none stop.

Ok everyone caught more than enough so we figured lets shoot for the bleachers!

So in came our trolling gear and out went 2 shark baits. (What did we use for shark baits you ask? Well how about bonitos seemed to us that's what they might be eating.)

Honestly we had very little current so I figured the smell of our baits were not getting out there very good and chances of attracting a shark were slim.

Well I was wrong all at once I seen out balloon go down like a lead ball the rod bent over and line was peeling off the reel and YEP we were HOOKED UP.
Aaron jumped on the rod and the fight was on.

After a good 20 min fight up popped this 8-foot plus silky shark!!!
Wow we never expected a shark this big and yep Aaron was jumping up and down.
Its nice to see someone so excited over a big catch like this!
I guess they don't make them like this in Iowa??)

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.
