We had a fun and exciting trip today, so I figure I’ll write a fishing report about it. We had some serious fisherwomen on the boat today including Betty Reyher, Ashley Reyher, Laura Hogel, Elizabeth Forde, Jill Irvine and Shelly Lewis. These gals can fish! We started off trolling and caught a wahoo right off the bat. We missed a couple nice dolphin too. We decided to go out and do some deep dropping for golden tilefish, so we headed offshore with our trolling lines out. We caught a couple dolphins on the way out there. We put the kites up with some live goggle eyes and did some deep dropping at the same time. The golden tilefish were biting good, so we caught a few nice ones. No action on the kite though.
After we got our golden tilefish, we decided to go in a little shallower and drop for snappers. We caught about 10 vermillion snappers. The girls had plenty for dinner so we put the trolling lines back out and headed for home, catching one last tuna before we were done. The action fishing Fort Lauderdale this week has been excellent. Dolphin, wahoo and tunas are around and although we didn’t catch any today, the sharks and sailfish are biting pretty good too. Deep dropping is also a great way to get some great eating fish for dinner this time of year. You can’t go wrong fishing Fort Lauderdale in April and May. Good luck to everyone fishing this week, the fish are biting!
