Well everyone, another great day today. We caught so many fish on the Catch My Drift that the anglers were complaining of their arms being sore when they got off the boat from winding in so many fish. The action fishing out of Ft. Lauderdale right now is fun and exciting. I love the summer months here because there are so many fish out there to catch right now. Today we caught about 30 bonitos in the morning. If you’ve never caught a bonito, they are HARD fighters. They are in the tuna family although not the best eating. We use them for strip baits, chum and chunk bait for yellowtail snappers. But they are a blast to catch and it kept everyone busy the whole trip. We also caught some kingfish today but just a few. The lines weren’t in the water very long without getting a bonito on. The guys that were fishing the bottom caught some porgies and a few snappers. It was a great day deep sea fishing off Ft. Lauderdale beach.
The sport fishing boats did good too. We caught a few nice kings, some bonito and a huge barracuda. We had a sailfish on today that gave us a few good jumps and few goof minutes of pulling drag but alas, he jumped us off. Can’t catch every one I guess. We’ve been catching all our fish trolling the reef with planers and surface lures. The best bite has been on the rigged ballyhoo and the bonito strip baits. No tuna today, but I heard of a few on the radio and we’ve been catching them this week here and there. Cya all later.
