Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report 07/16/09
We had two trips today. We had four people on the morning trip. We started the trip trolling. As soon as we got baits in the water we were getting bites. The kingfish and bonito were snapping again. We caught kingfish and bonito for a while until we got our limit of kingfish. Then we went to try for something different. We had a couple of live baits so we fished them and caught a nice barracuda before heading in to get our afternoon trip. We had six people on the afternoon trip. They wanted to try for some mahi-mahi. We headed offshore but there were no mahis out there so we headed back to the reef to catch some fish. We put the first bait out and caught a small blackfin tuna. We trolled the reef and caught three kingfish. We then went to one of the wrecks. We dropped a live bait and missed a bite. We reset on the wreck got another bite. This time the fish stayed on and we caught a big almaco jack before heading back to the dock.
