We’ve had a couple interesting catching on our sportfishing trips this week, so I thought I’d write a quick fishing report. Just about anything you could want to catch is biting right now. There’s been some kingfish and bonito action trolling the reef, snappers and groupers biting on the bottom around the shipwrecks and rock piles, dophin are scattered offshore with some wahoos mixed in, and for the big game fishermen out there, sharks and sailfish are here too. There’s been a smorgasbord of fish species being caught right now.

Our Fort Lauderdale head boat, the Catch My Drift, has been doing very well on their morning and afternoon fishing trips these past few days. A lot of good kingfish action on the reef has been keeping most of the anglers busy. We’ve been getting most of our bites just out in front of the inlet, in about 100-150′ of water. This is the time of year that we catch some of our biggest kingfish in South Florida.
I had a great trip this weekend with a good customer of mine that charters me every year for a couple days of sportfishing. His name is Erik and he designed a special gimbal to fit with his wheelchair. Well, Erik charted us for 3 all day trips in a row this last weekend. Erik is the kind of guy that just likes to catch anything, no matter what it is. Well, I am too, but this is the 3rd year in a row he has fished with us and he has still not caught a sailfish. This year, no matter what, I really wanted to catch him a sailfish.
