Big Kingfish And Wahoo Biting Offshore

kingfish, wahoo

We had a pair of father and sons fishing Fort Lauderdale offshore waters with us yesterday. It was a hot but beautiful mid August morning with calm seas. We started the day as usual catching some bait before heading offshore. The guys wanted to troll so we headed to 300 – 800 feet of water and put out some live baits. The big schools of bonito have been hard to find lately but we did manage to catch one nice sized bonito along with a Spanish mackerel and a nice blackfin tuna. The big excitement for the day started when a large kingfish inhaled one of our baits. The boys were amazed at the speed and power of this big fish. They did a great job fighting the fish and getting it to the boat so my mate could gaff it and get it into the fish box. Then, not to be outdone, an even larger wahoo grabbed a bait and went on a blistering run. Again, the guys were up to the challenge and got the fish to the boat and into the fish box. Time was getting late and everybody was worn out from the battles so we headed back to the dock with some happy fishermen.
