Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report 07/26/09
We has three fathers and their sons with us on a morning trip today. We got a late start because when we backed in the slip yesterday afternoon I got an old rope caught on the port prop and had to go swimming to get it off this morning. When we finally got out most of the other boats were already fishing and talking on the radio. It sounded like fishing was slow. We tried to catch bait but they didn’t come up so we went trolling. We started trolling around in circles south of the port. On the first circle we caught a kingfish. Second circle produced two more kingfish. The fourth circle and two bonito. Fishing wasn’t as slow as it was sounding on the radio for us. We continued trolling the rest of the trip and ended up catching nine kingfish and four bonito before heading in.
