Fort Lauderdale fishing Mahi-Mahi

Beschreibung des Ausflugs

On our last report we spoke about the much awaited cold (cooler) fronts and how the anticipated upswing for offshore Fort Lauderdale fishing really didn't turn many heads or really last very long to boot. Slow tough days on the water and an occasional nice catch. And then there are the good days. Memorable days, which keep us all coming back. Pictured is Karen and 1st mate Big Dave with a killer Mahi-Mahi aboard the Marlin My Darlin. This fish took a live Pilchard cast especially for him on an offshore edge in 860 feet of water. He turned down two previous casts with a good frisky bait as frustration mounted on our end. A third cast with a brand new bait with a slightly different hook placement got the green light we hoped for. That is a real nice Mahi on 20 pound spin and she did a great job with a large and difficult fish. We had 6 or 7 more keepers and 3 or 4 of them took some coaxing as well. Two Wahoo and a nice fat Skippy rounded out the trip. Lots of people ask me when is a good time to go fishing and always my initial reply is “any time you can”. I say that and then I'll get more specific about my favorite months, etc. But it's true you know. Every day is different and has the potential to be special. Get out there. We closed our last report lamenting the erratic offshore fishing and that we were looking forward to a new day “tomorrow”. Sometimes tomorrow is another tough day. Sometimes it isn't. “Any time you can”. Tight lines and good fishing

Fort Lauderdale Charter Fishing Report –
Fort Lauderdale Charter Fishing Report –
Dezember 20, 2023
As the festive season unfurls, so have our fishing lines! December in Fort Lauderdale has offered us a cocktail of weather patterns, but anglers aboard our renowned vessels – 'Marlin, My Darlin’ both 46 and 53 feet of pristine charter prowess – have reaped the benefits of a teeming Atlantic. Here's the lowdown on what's been leaping from the waters. **Sailfish Season in Swing:** December's dip in mercury traditionally heralds a spike in sailfish activity a trend that has held true. Thanks to cooler climes, these acrobatic fighters have been a consistent thrill, providing many anglers with the rush of a lifetime. Our captains have employed kite fishing with a master's touch, luring sailfish to the surface and into the hands of exuberant anglers. Incidentally, this method has also tempted imposing trophy sharks, with hammerheads, tigers, and makos making appearances that have sent reels screaming and pulses racing. **Mahi-mahi Mania:** Offshore pursuits have been fruitful for those targeting mahi-mahi. Most have returned successful, hoisting fish within the 3 to 7-pound bracket, although there have been tales of larger specimens. These vibrant battlers have been prowling waters from 400 to 1000 feet, where they've struck baits with the tenacity for which they're celebrated. **Tuna and Wahoo Whispers:** Blackfin tunas have graced us with their presence, albeit playing hard to get. Intermixed in the catch, wahoo has been the occasional delight – their searing speed and razor bite adding a layer of excitement to any fishing narrative. **Reef Fishing Rundown:** While the reef scene has been sluggish at times, especially for trolling enthusiasts, the perseverance of our crews has paid dividends. Wahoo have made periodic dashes across our spreads, while small tunas and respectable king mackerel have kept the action steady. **Wreck Fishing Rewards:** For those who've fancied their chances closer to the seabed, the shipwrecks have served up a mixed bag. Large snappers still lurk in the shadows, joined by formidable amberjacks and the visually delightful vermilion snappers. It's been a case of 'drop and reel' for those hitting these honey holes. **Looking Ahead:** With Mother Nature promising a stretch of sterling weather, and the holiday spirit embracing Fort Lauderdale, there couldn't be a more divine time for a family fishing charter. Whether you're a local or planning a yuletide vacation, the silver lining is clear – December's waters are bustling with life, and 'Marlin My Darlin’ charters are at the ready to create memories that will sparkle long after the holiday lights dim. Book your adventure and let's cast lines into the bright horizon of fishing festivities!

Outstanding South Florida Charter Fishin
Outstanding South Florida Charter Fishin
Oktober 25, 2023
The past few weeks have proven to be exciting times for fishing enthusiasts in South Florida. Despite windy weather and choppy seas, our charter fishing has been outstandingly fruitful. Why? Because these conditions usually lure in the larger fish. It's been a red-hot period for Sailfish enthusiasts who have found a productive bite along the reef ranging from 80 to 200 feet. Kite fishing is unmistakably our preferred method for tackling these challenging species, yielding impressive results. Those angling for Sailfish can also expect a good bycatch of mahi-mahi and blackfin tuna. Interestingly, our waters have also been frequented by a few large trophy sharks, namely robust bull sharks and elusive hammerheads. These unexpected visitors up the thrill factor, reinforcing that we're in the thick of trophy season. On the flip side, offshore mahi-mahi fishing has been slow, with most catches being reported along the reef through either live bait or trolling methods. Blackfin tuna has been showing up more regularly in the late afternoons, with catches typically weighing between 3 to 10 pounds. This bounty has ensured that our charter guests have plenty of opportunities to battle with larger game fish. All in all, this season's fishing report beams with excitement and promises even more action as we plunge further into the trophy season. Grab your gear and join us in the hunt for the 'Big One’!
