Mixed bag of fish on today’s Fort Lauderdale drift fishing trip

By September 16, 2007 Drift Fishing Reports

Good catch for the Catch My Drift

Some big kings are biting out of Port Everglades on the Catch My Drift.  We caught a smoker kingfish today, along with some big vermillion snappers.  Some of the vermillions we were catching were 3-5 pounders.  Thats a lot bigger than the average 1-2 pounders we have been catching.  This is photo of the big king we caught, and a couple of the fat little vermillion snappers.  The group shot we took here, shows we caught some very large vermillion snappers, a bunch of bonitos that we caught.  What you can’t see is the 15 pound blackfin tuna we caught thats behind the guy and didn’t make it into the photo.  You also can’t see the big almaco jack that we caught on this drift fishing trip.  The almaco must have weighed about 20 pounds too.  It was a great day of drift fishing.
