Mahi-Mahi Action Hot This Week Fishing in Fort Lauderdale

Sportfishing Charter

Nice sportfishing charter catch aboard the Big Game

The mahi-mahi are biting awesome this week in Fort Lauderdale.  This hard east wind we’re having the past couple days has gotten the mahi-mahi active and chewing.  The drift boats are catching them, the all day trip is catch A LOT of them, our sportfishing boat is catching some BIG ones… fishing is good this week.  Some scattered blackfin tunas, kingfish and a couple nice wahoo have also hit the dock this week.  Vermillion snapper season has just opened up, but we’ve been ignoring them in favor of the excellent mahi-mahi bite that is going on.  The great thing is that these dolphin fish are biting in only 100-300ft of water, in close only a mile offshore.

Drift fishing trip

Nice catch on the Catch My Drift, fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale

Today’s drift fishing trip aboard the Catch My Drift was great.  We caught 11 mahi-mahi, a couple kingfish and 2 nice mutton snappers.  The mahi-mahi hit us as a school, and we caught all 11 fish at the same time.  We had 12 people on the boat and everybody that had a line in the water got hooked up.  Almost every trip we’ve had this week, both drift fishing trips and our sportfishing charters, has caught mahi-mahi.  Fishing is excellent in Fort Lauderdale right now.  The next couple weeks should give us a lot of action.  Good luck out there fishing everyone.  Sea ya on the water.
