The all day trip today caught a nice mess of dolphin fish. The dolphin are biting really good offshore of Fort Lauderdale this week. Today’s all day trip caught 12 dolphin, yesterday morning’s sportfishing charter caught 17 dolphin, yesterday’s all day trip caught 9 dolphin. The dolphin are out there and biting good. There are also a few wahoo and blackfin tuna biting on these trips.
On today’s trip, knowing the dolphin were around and biting, we headed immediately offshore. We found a nice weedline and trolled along it. It wasn’t long before the action started. We kept hitting pairs of dolphin here and there, every 10 or 15 minutes. The dolphin were big schoolie size ones. We caught 12 in total along with a few small blackfin tuna. After catching the dolphin, Capt Stu came in on the reef and did some bottom fishing in 350ft of water. We caught 16 tilefish deep dropping in the last hour of the trip. We only had 6 anglers on the trip today, and everyone went home with plenty of fish for a few dinners. Dolphin fishing is going great this week on the sport fishing and all day fishing trips. The sailfish are also biting good out there on the sport fishing trips, but that is for another fishing report. Sea you on the water.
