There are some game fish biting off Fort Lauderdale this week

It was a great day of fishing for us yesterday on the sportfishing and drift fishing boats.  First off, we had a good trip on the Mary B III, our 55′ drift fishing boat.  We caught a few snappers and a dolphin along with some kings and bonitos.  We had a guy in a wheelchair out with us that day.  He lost both of his legs.  Ryan, the mate on the trip said, “the guy didn’t have any legs, but he had one helluva sense of humor”.  I guess they were telling jokes and laughing the whole trip.  I’m glad they got to catch a few fish that day.

Our Sportfishing boats have been doing great.  Some really nice game fish have been coming in.  Yesterday, we had a guy with his 2 sons come out with us just for a short trip.  He just wanted his son to get to wind in a fish, so we justwent out for a little while.  It was his son’s birthday that day.  They caught a nice barracuda on a light tackle rod.  His son, who was just 5 or 6 years old, fought the fish the whole time.  He did a good job and caught a really nice fish for such a little guy.  You can tell by his smile that he had a great time out there, and Dad did too.

One other trip we had yesterday brought in a huge hammerhead shark.  They hooked the fish about a mile offshore of Fort Lauderdale and fought the fish for a good 30 minutes.  It was a 7 foot hammerhead shark, a beauty.  It was a great day of fishing out there, and there are some really big game fish biting right now.  Sportfishing has been a bit better than drift fishing these past few days, but the drift boats have been pulling in their fair share of fish too.  Sea ya all tommorrow…
