April turned out to be a very productive month. Fishing out of Fort Lauderdale was good in that the Sailfish came through, the Mahi-Mahi (sort of came through) Sharks, Kings and Swordfishing has been good. So overall the month has been steady with a bag of King Mackerel, Sailfish, Bonito, Barracuda, Snapper and offshore we are capturing Mahi- Mahi. Swordfishing this month picked up good.
The sword bite was anywhere from sun down to about midnight about a week to 4 days before the full moon and a four days to a week after the full moon. Most of our bites were on squid and a handful on live bait. Using live blue runners are good because they are soo hardy. A strong bait is good to have down deep line where the 300 pound swordfish live off fort lauderdale. These Swords travel from Northern down South past Lauderdale and into the Caribbean as far as DR and Venezuela. Our fishing grounds here off fort lauderdale are fertile fishing for swords.
To reserve a fishing charter, please contact the captain to discuss fishing pricing and or whats biting now and possibly tomorrow.
Thanks and tight lines,
