New Red Grouper Rules For Gulf

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved a new state regulation at it’s Nov. 20 meeting in Key Largo that lowers the red grouper recreational bag limit from four to two fish per person in Gulf of Mexico state waters, excluding Monroe County. Earlier this year, the recreational red grouper season was closed in federal waters because of the recreational catch limit being exceeded in 2013. Florida anglers and for-hire captains requested the change in the bag limit hoping it will increase the length of the recreational red grouper season in federal waters. The changes also make state regulations consistent with pending regulations in Gulf federal waters. As long as the two-fish federal regulation is approved, the new state regulation will go into effect on January 1, 2015.

Wahoo And Sailfish Off Fort Lauderdale

Big South Florida Wahoo

Fort Lauderdale deep sea fishing has been very good over the last week. The mahi bite has been strong and the kingfish are biting good. Anglers fishing with us aboard the Reel Work out of Fort Lauderdale have also caught a nice sailfish, a big wahoo, a cobia, some skipjack and a few tripletail.

Fort Lauderdale Mahi, Sailfish

The fishing should remain good to excellent through the rest of the year. We start to see a few cold fronts blow through South Florida this time of year. They will slow fishing down for a day or two, but between fronts the fishing will be excellent.

Time to get out for some Fort Lauderdale fishing. Fill in the form on the left hand side of this page or give us a call to set up your Fort Lauderdale fishing charter.

Anglers fishing with me aboard the Reel Work out of Fort Lauderdale have been kept busy with mahi-mahi and kingfish. The fishing was outstanding on Monday. We had a morning fishing charter and an afternoon fishing charter. Mahi, kingfish and even a small wahoo kept our anglers busy in the morning. They ended the trip with 7 mahi, 4 kingfish and the wahoo. Our anglers fishing with us in the afternoon caught a few less fish, but made up the difference in size. They ended the charter with 4 nice mahi, 3 respectable kingfish and a wahoo. All in all it was another good day of fishing Fort Lauderdales offshore waters.

Fall is here and the fishing is great! Time to go on a Fort Lauderdale fishing charter. Fill in the form on the left hand side of this page or give us a call to set up your Fort Lauderdale fishing charter.

Fishing Charter Makes Summer Memories

Bonito, Kingfish

We had another good morning of fishing offshore of Fort Lauderdale today. Two young anglers and there father decided to joined us for a half day charter before they head back to school next week. We headed out to around 800 feet of water and almost immediately started hooking up to bonito and kingfish. The action was non stop for the entire charter with all of our anglers getting an opportunity to land several nice fish. We ended the trip with six bonito, five kingfish, and three happy anglers. I don’t think these kids will be forgetting this summer vacation for a long time! Make some ever lasting memories with your family. We are a family friendly charter and welcome anglers of every age and experience.

Sizzling Summer Fishing 2014

Sailfish, Wahoo, Kingfish…What More Can You Ask For?

Sailfish Takes Off 7-31-14

Summer fishing has been sizzling hot this week. Three of the most popular fish swimming our offshore waters, sailfish, wahoo, and tuna, have been tearing up our baits. We do not usually catch a lot of sailfish this time of year, but we have managed to catch two nice ones in the last three days. Wednesday we were surprised to catch a sail, then Friday we caught another! Check out the videos to see some of the action.

Sailfish Surfaces 7-31-14

A nice sailfish would be enough to make any fishing charter memorable,but Fridays trip also included bonito, kingfish, tuna, and a big wahoo! Now that is a fishing trip!

Big fish and happy customers. This is why I love fishing Fort Lauderdale.

Fort Lauderdale Offshore Report 7-30-14

sailfish7-30-14

Deep sea fishing offshore of Fort Lauderdale has been good lately. Mahi, bonito, and kingfish are the most consistent catches. We have also caught skipjack tuna, blackfin tuna, a big rainbow runner, and a nice sailfish.

mahi-tuna7-29-14

Captain Alex was joined by my mate Dave and some eager angler for a charter aboard the Reel Work on Tuesday. They got some nice mahi and a big rainbow runner by casting bonito chunks around a log they found floating in about 800 feet of water. After the action slowed at the log they caught a few bonito and skipjack tuna while trolling bonito strips under small squidlys.

blackfin tuna7-30-14

I was back at the helm for this mornings charter. We headed back out to the 800 foot range and started trolling bonito strips under small squidlys along with a seawitch bonito strip combo behind a planer. Our anglers were having a great time catching kingfish and blackfin tuna when a nice sailfish decided to join the party. Our angler did a great job fighting the sailfish to the boat where we took a few pictures before releasing it. We don’t catch a lot of sailfish this time of year, but every now and then one will surprise us.

Summer is a great time to go deep sea fishing offshore of Fort Lauderdale. The weather is usually good and we catch a nice variety of fish. Come on down and join us for a deep sea fishing charter!
