Red Hot Fishing after Hurricane Irma

Capt. Mike Busse
September 27, 2017
Pompano Beach - Saltwater Fishing Report

I apologize for the delay in my reports. We had a hurricane called Irma to deal with.

First, let me say our thoughts and prayers go out to all the people affected by the hurricane - especially to all the people in the FL Keys and Naples. The devastation to those particular areas was unprecedented. They are extremely strong people and have already started to rebuild.

In regards to fishing, the fishing after hurricane Irma has been nothing short of outstanding. There has been a ton of debris floating offshore due to the hurricane. Everything from trees, boats, docks etc. Almost every piece of debris was holding mahi. Most of the mahi have been good size from 8-20lbs. We also have caught quite a few nice triple tail off the floating debris. The debris has been pretty consistent the past two weeks, but should stay that way for a few more weeks.

Along with the awesome mahi bite, the swordfish bite has been excellent. We have had two daytime swordfish trips after the hurricane and caught a swordfish on both trips. Both swordfish weighed about 120lbs. The swordfish bite from October thru December should be very good, as this is the time of year we get our biggest push of migrating swordfish thru our area. Most of these swordfish are very big pushing over 600 lbs.

We have not had any snapper/grouper trips recently, but I have heard the fishing has been excellent. Most drift boats have been coming in with very impressive catches.

October is filling up quickly but I do have a fair amount of dates open. If you're looking to catch your first swordfish or just want to learn the technical aspect of how to fish for daytime swordfish give me a call or send me an email. And let's go catch some fish!

Catch Em Up,

Capt. Mike Busse
