The Sun Will Come Out.... Tomorrow.

Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report
We have only fished 2 trips in the past 2 days on our whole fleet. It's been a slow week with Tropical Storm Albert over on the west coast of Florida and the Gulf of Mexico. It hasn't been that rough, only medium winds, but the gray skies are enough to depress almost anyone from going fishing. FORTUNATELY, the sun will come out tomorrow. Gray skies go away and the sun should show itself by 10-11am tomorrow, once again making great fishing conditions for us. Light winds too, average 10mph winds are in the forecast. When just about any kind of weather would be better than what we've been getting, it should turn out to be a glorious weather week for south Florida.
Over the past couple days, there have been some decent catches of fish. Our drift boat went out Saturday and caught a nice mess of mutton snappers, yellowtails, a couple kings and a nice tuna. Not a bad day with only a few anglers aboard. Our sportfishing boat charter caught some good action on the reef with the first round of bonitos migrating through our waters, along with some kingfish, blackfin tunas, barracudas and missed a really nice wahoo behind the boat. We made up for that by catching a giant dusky shark with only a few minutes left to fish in the trip. June is the last month of really good shark fishing in Fort Lauderdale, so get 'em while you can. Good luck to everyone fishing this week. The weather should turn beautiful by the end of today and hopefully, with very few boats out there harassing the fish over the past week, the fishing will be off-the-scale. Sea ya on the water,
Capt. Andy Roydhouse
