The fishing is absolutely awesome this week in Fort Lauderdale. The dolphin are on the reef and they are everywhere. On today’s fishing charter, we went out and started trolling the reef. We started getting dolphin bites immediately! Before we got all 6 of our lines out, we already had 3 dolphin hooked up and fighting. The action lasted almost all day, hitting a pack of 2-3 dolphin every 10 minutes or so. We really crushed the dolphin today. After all the fish were counted, we had 33 dolphin. I know we jumped off another 10 behind the boat and missed some more on the hook up. The action was spectacular today. This east wind we’re having now is really good for fishing. The seas are big, but the fishing gets off the chain.

All week the dolphin action has been good. December is always an awesome month for dolphin and this east wind has them all stirred up. Tuna are also biting on the reef. Blackfin and skipjack tuna are biting good on the troll, hitting natural feathers and torpedo dart lures. When drifting, whip jigs and butterfly jigs are getting good bites on tuna. Sailfish season is getting excellent too. On our sailfishing charters, we are kite fishing with live goggle eyes and mullet. On our half day trips, we are averaging 2 sailfish per trip. Sailfishing gets even better as we get deeper into December. Look forward to an awesome month of deep sea fishing over the next 45-60 days. Good luck and tight lines everybody!
