Great Sport fishing trips this week on the Fort Lauderdale fishing boats

A couple great fish caught on this Fort Lauderdale fishing charter 

Its been a helluva week as sea everyone.  Lots of action on our sportfishing trips this week.  First off the big kingfish are starting to show up on the reef in really good numbers.  We’ve caught a lot of kingfish this week and some really nice ones like the big king in the photo below.

The big bonitos are tearing it up out there as well.  On most of our trips lately, we’ve had lots of action on the troll with bonitos and nice kingfish.  Some small-medium sized mahi mahi have been venturing in on the reefs as well.  On more than one trip this week, we’ve hit a school of dolphins swimming by.  Hungry little suckers, they will eat just about anything you throw at them. 

Golden amberjack caught wreck fishing in Fort Lauderdale

The wrecks have been holding a few of these really big golden amberjacks.  We usually make a couple drops on some of the shipwrecks off our coast on most of our sport fishing charters.  The wrecks this time of year hold the aggressive feeding golden amberjacks, which put up a hellatious fight on the heaviest of tackle.  Few fish can pull with the strength of these deep water gamefish.  Both of these amberjacks were caught on the same fishing trip.  Nice catch!

 Here is a letter from Gerry Smither, our charter who sent us these photos.  Thanks for the trip Gerry, and thanks for the photos.  I’m glad you had a great trip out there. 

Attached are some of the photos taken on the boat, Big Game, we went out on last Saturday.  Our Captain was fantastic.  Rod was a great first mate, constantly in motion, to make sure we caught fish…and did we ever!  Thanks for a great trip – we’ll be back!  I’ll send some more photos taken back on the dock.
