Today Capt JJ and Mike had a four hour charter running from 8am‑noon. They had some great fishing the whole trip trolling fresh bonito strips behind sea witch feathers. They were pulling these baits behind planers to get them 20-30 feet below the surface. The kingfish were biting left and right, one after the other. Angler Arthur caught six kingfish in a row. In addition to the kingfish, Victor and his son Sebastian caught a huge sailfish, well over six feet long. It was jumping all over the ocean, putting on a great show for the other charter boats trolling the reef.
On the afternoon charter we went right back trolling again and caught a few mahi-mahi and 30 bonitos. The bonito have been running 5-8 lbs. and though they are not great eating they put up a great fight every time!

This morning Captain Darin and JJ took David from North Carolina out for a deep sea fishing experience that he will not soon forget. It was just one of those days where anything you put into the water gets slammed by a fish. They caught four mahi-mahi, three blackfin tunas, a wahoo and a sailfish, and then some king fish and bonitos! It was absolutely unreal Ft. Lauderdale fishing. The only problem now is that every year David comes down he's going to expect the same fishing! As we all know fishing isn't always that easy. Regardless, you sure did a good job today David.
