Fort Lauderdale, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report

Today we started out our day fishing with Rick and Debbie from Ohio and Jim and MaryAnn from Pittsburg. We trolled the reef and once again the reef did not let us down. The king fish and bonitos were eating the bottom of the boat out. We could hardly get all the lines in the water at the same time without one of the other bait getting hit.

All the kings were about 7 to 10 pounds with one being a bit bigger than the rest it weighed about 18 pounds along with a box full of bonitos we all kept busy and had a ball.

As we pulled back to the dock to pick up our afternoon trip we had Charles, C.J. and C.W. waiting on us. After seeing the catch we had from our morning trip they were all excited and ready to fish. And once again the reef paid off big for us. We had our limit of king fish in no time along with a box full of bonitos again. We also tried some deep drops for some snappers but the current was going so fast that we only caught a couple snappers.

All in all everyone that fished on the Hooked Up today had a ball and we're looking forward to fishing with you all again soon for sail fish.

Today we had Chad and Zack from North Carolina out for a morning of deep sea fishing.

Once again we trolled the reef and once again the reef was holding some fish but I am sorry to say that today we had some south current and the fish just were not biting as well as they had been. We did still end up catching a few king fish and bonitos but they just were not biting like they had been all week. But we did get lucky and also caught a BIG barracuda.

Thanks again Chad and Zack for a fun morning of fishing and we hope to see you guys again soon for sail fish season.
