Bottom Fishing in Ft Lauderdale


Nice snapper catch

Nice catch of red snappers deep dropping off Fort Lauderdale

The fishing this week in Fort Lauderdale is great. A lot of action on the reefs and wrecks. Today, we went snapper fishing for a few hours and caught a whole bunch of red snappers. We caught all of these fish in 350ft of water, deep dropping with chicken rigs baited with squid and chunks of bonito. We were pulling them up 3-5 at a time. The snappers were ‘snappin’ as they say. Good fishing on the wrecks for big game too. The amberjacks are all over the wrecks and biting ferociously. This is the season when the big amberjacks come through and inhabit the wrecks. They are big too, some of them 40-60 pounds. Live baiting around the wrecks is all but a sure thing for a big amberjack bite.
