The deep sea fishing was great off Ft Lauderdale this week. The drift boats have been catching kingfish after kingfish after kingfish. There have been a lot of kingfish on the reef. Action has been good on our morning and afternoon drift fishing trips. The night tirp has been great for snappers of all species.

It wasn’t long before we got the first bite. It ate the flat line, the one bait we had only 30 feet off the back of the boat. It wasn’t a big swordfish, but a swordfish none-the-less. We caught him in about 20 minutes. It was strong for such a small one. We had him on our closest line, which was also our lightest tackle rod accordingly. The fish was almost legal, only an inch short. We pulled the fish up and released him.
