Grouper fishing out of Lauderdale

John and his son caught this nice Grouper on one of our wrecks located in 200 feet of water just off Ft. Lauderdale. There are a total of 30+ wrecks that are available to fish. The best wreck to fish is based on what you would like to target. For example we are looking for one of 4 or 5 species that we catch on our wrecks off Ft. Lauderdale. The depth ranges from 50 feet of water to over 450 feet of water. Typically the shallower wrecks we are catching fish like Barracuda and Snapper, when we head out a little deeper, then we start to get into the wrecks that hold Grouper and Amberjack. The wrecks can be a local Lauderdale bus that was sunk, or a plane, freighter, rock piles and even ships have been sunk.

The very best way to approach the wreck is to have live bait, using the proper tackle for the target species. Taking into consideration the current off Ft. Lauderdale as well as the wind direction, captain Tom will position the boat where you will drop the bait in front of the wreck, then the current will drift past the wreck. When you start to get the bite, wait until the fish has fully eaten the bait.. Then your on. This Grouper was off one of the wrecks out in 225 feet of water and was a nice fight. Fishing with our boat, we give you options and can fish for example offshore for Mahi or inshroe for Sailfish and of course fish the wrecks. If interested in a fishing charter, contact is at (954) 439-8106 and we will be discuss options, whats been biting and what is the best fish to target.
