The wahoo fishing is getting good in Ft Lauderdale. The past couple days they’ve just been everywhere, 100, 200, 300 feet of water. Trolling, live baiting, drift fishing, anything, they are just biting everything. They haven’t been monster wahoo, but they sure have been plentiful. Most of the ‘hoos we’re catching are 12-15 pounds, but a couple bigger ones over 20. The Keeping it Reel caught a triple header wahoo trolling in 200 foot of water today, along with a nice bull dolphin and 2 sailfish! Winter fishing is always good in Ft Lauderdale. Sailfish are still biting nicely on the reef. We still haven’t gotten our SUPER BIG sailfish snap yet, but it’s coming and it’s coming SOON! Get ready! Probably the next cold snap and we’ll catch like 10 a day.
The mahi-mahi are still biting good too. Not quite as good as last weeks big snap, but we’re catching them in on the reefs, which means we’re catching them drift fishing and sport fishing. It’s always awesome to catch dolphin on the reef drift fishing trip. Speaking of drifting, we’re catching a mixed bag on the drift boat. Some kingfish, some mahi-mahi, some small blackfin and skipjack tunas are biting, a few mutton snappers and yellowtails on the bottom, and even a sailfish on the drift sometimes. Pretty good catches on the morning and afternoon trips. The all day trip is getting a good pick on dolphin this week. With 8 hours, they can really hunt them down. Wahoo and tuna are also biting good on the all day trip. Great fishing in Ft Lauderdale this week. Get out there while the fishing is hot. Tight lines.
