The last three days fishing offshore and inshroe off Fort Lauderdale have been a mixed bag of fish. The fish that we have been catching are Sailfish, Mahi-Mahi, Snapper, Amberjack and King Mackerel.
We typically start the day out with one of four options. Depending on what you would like to target. Do you want to catch edible fish, or do you want to catch game fish. This is where we can advsie whats been caught and what fish are biting best.
Of the four options, we can head righ offshore and target Mahi-Mahi and Wahoo offshore anywhere from 500' of water to 700' of water. Looking for the weedlines and floating debris is where we have the very best sucsess catching fish. Using deep baits and live baits. Fishing in the Gulf Stream has been goood because the Mahi are coming through. Not in large numbers but the fish we are catching are anywhere from 10 pounds to 20+ pounds.
Also we can fish the inshroe reef in waters from 80' to 130' feet of water. We are targeting King Mackerel, & Bonito. By using deep lines and surface lines (sea witches, King busters, strips and Ballyhoo) we are having good success catching the Kings from 8 to 15 pounders and Barracuda and Bonito.
Also we go right to Sailfishing just out of Ft. Lauderdale reef line and set up on the local South Florida wrecks. On the wrecks that are in 120' to 200' of water hold bait which is a great area for a migrating Sail to hang around and feed on the scools of bait that hold in and around the schools of bait fish. Again the productive days fishing offshore out of Ft. Lauderdale is when we have bait, wind and current.
If interested in the current bite, what has been hot and what is the best opportunity to catch fish. Please contact myself or my father/owner Captain Tommy Zsak to discuss the day/ bite/ and what works best for your group. We can take up to 6 persons fishing and please call to discuss availability and rates.
