The wrecks are always active in the Spring. Golden amberjacks are numerous around the South Florida shipwrecks right now. Amberjacks are very strong fish and its not uncommon to catch one up to 50 pounds this time of year. Also feeding on the small bait fish around the local shipwrecks are cobia, grouper and snapper. Cobia and groupers are also big game fish and can be caught into the 50 pound range. In the Spring months, you can literally catch anything because EVERYTHING is biting. Wreck fishing can be very fun though because of the large game fish and all the action that happens.

The Ft Lauderdale sportfishing boats are catching sailfish great this month, so it’s a great time to get out on a charter if you really want to get a sailfish. This is the tail end of the sailfish season, so this is pretty much your last month to have a really good shot at catching one.
