Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charter

Nice picture of a Cuda caught sportfishing in Fort Lauderdale 

The Big Game sportfishing boat caught a nice barracuda and a good sized dolphin today on the morning trip.  The morning was a little slow out there, but we managed to catch a couple good ones.  We started off kite fishing with some live baits and the action was slow.  After a while of sitting there with no action we had about a 12 pound dolphin swim up on us.  The mate fed the fish and came tight on him.  The dolphin jumped every which way but loose and he’s going to make a delicious dinner for Captain Johan, since the customer left the fish for him since he doesn’t eat fish.  After a little while of no more kite fishing action, we made a move and stopped at a shallow shipwreck where we put out some live baits.  We caught a really nice barracuda for the other guy on the boat, trophy sized one. 

Sportfishing in Fort Lauderdale 

The afternoon trip was a little better.  We started off trolling and caught a bonito and another dolphin fish, about an 8 pounder.  Later on we popped the kite up and got hooked into a huge sailfish.  The fish charged the boat and made some jumps directly at us.  He came completely out of the water 4 times and put on one helluva show for us.  We got the fish up to the boat and released him after the customers got some photos.  I hope they send me some pictures because I didn’t have my camera aboard today.  It was a good sportfishing trip this afternoon. 

Dolphin caught on a Fort Lauderdale drift fishing trip 

The drift boat had a good day too.  They got into some dolphin and caught a nice kingfish.  It wasn’t red hot fishing today out of Fort Lauderdale but it wasn’t terrible.  We did catch some nice fish and everybody that went out had a good time.  Fishing looks good tommorrow and with the east wind there should be some good fish around.  Sea you all out there.
