Ft Lauderdale Offshore Fishing 9-12-2011
Fort Lauderdale deep sea fishing has been very good all summer and has gotten even better in September. Tilefish, vermillion snapper and snowy grouper have been keeping our Ft Lauderdale fishing charters clients busy lately along with some excellent catches of bonita, tripletail, kingfish, wahoo and dolphin.
Trolling offshore on the weekend of the 3rd was producing good catches of bonita and kingmackerel when I spotted a school of dolphin. We gave chase and ended up landing 10 nice size mahi and releasing several undersized fish. After loosing the fast moving mahi-mahi we continued trolling and started catching some big wahoo. We ended the trip with a 20lb wahoo, a 35lb wahoo and a 40lb wahoo.
This weekend while trolling live bait in 800ft of water when I spotted a floating piece of bamboo. Trolling around the bamboo produced 10 nice dolphin before the fish disappeared. A short while later we came across a floating pallet. We caught 22 more dolphin off of that pallet and ended the day with the dolphin, 8 wahoo, several kingmackerel and 3 tripletail. Now that’s a good day of fishing!
