The shark fishing hasn’t slowed down any either. Its still big game shark season out of Fort Lauderdale now and they are eating machines. There is no guarantee that your going to catch a shark or not on one of our charters, but the chances are pretty dang good. There is a huge migration right now of the really big game sharks about 2 miles offshore of Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Pompano. They are moving through, so they are hungry. Put down a big bloody bait in 350′ of water and you’re very likely to be pulling up something bigger than you are.

The day fishing trips have been exciting lately. The weather has been beautiful and as usual this time of year, the fish have been biting. When the kings are biting, we’re on the reefs drifting out dead ballyhoo and sardines. The action is good. Sometimes we get jumped by a school of mahi mahi and then we really come in with a good catch. Lots of action on the morning and the afternoon trips lately.
Cow dolphin usually get to the baits first. Bulls have a lot of water to push with that huge blunt head and usually get to the baits a little after the cows get there. I kept a close eye on the other baits, but nothing was happening, so we concentrated on fighting the one we had on the line. It was getting closer to the boat now, and we could tell it was a nice cow, about a 20 pounder. It was almost invisible, but I saw the glow of blue about 10 feet trailing behind the cow. It was a bull and it was a big one. Both fish were off our port side, the cow on the line and bull trailing free right behind it.
