May Fishing Fort Lauderdale
The sail-fishing continues to be productive through spring . Doing the normal, kite fishing when we have wind and drifting pilchards when the seas are calm.
Grouper Season Has finally opened and the Grouper fishing is Hot. When we have current we are catching a few in a trip. We caught our personal best Gag Grouper in the first week of May 50.15lbs.
Along with the Groupers, the Mutton Snapper are also starting to make an appearance as well.
The wreck fishing is the most effective technique recently, catching a 30lb cubera snapper on our normal ship wreck. This is the third Large Snapper we have caught in 3 months of wreck fishing. One of the toughest fish in the ocean, and also put up a hell of a fight.
While swordfishing has been on fire, this is the best year we saw for swordfish in 8 seasons. Day or Night have both been productive, catching one of these galtitator of the seas is not out of the question. On the few swordfishing trips that we did, we caught multiple fish.
I would recommend the daytime for the best experience. We prefer to use two electric reels during the day.
We also carry a few manual assist reels if you want to crank one in yourself. Consider yourself warned, reeling in a swordfish in 1800’ can be strainuuis. When sword fishing is slow during the day, stoping for grocery’s on the way In is a must. A few drops in 800’ of water can land you some tasty Black Belly Rose Fish.
Which are a deep water fish that are easy to catch, and also great for the dinner table. Bringing in the new year with good fishing is always a good sign for the year to come. Make sure to check out our custom trips to find which trip best suits you and your group.
