Ft Lauderdale Fishing w/Capt. Mike
<p>Fishing Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Pompano Beach waters this month will prove to be some of the years best fishing. Overall March was pretty good but April so far has been outstanding. On the troll we have been crushing medium size black fin tunas and plenty of dolphin (mahi mahi). Lots of bait around with ballyhoos on the inshore patch reefs and a ton of flying fish offshore. Sailfish are still biting on gogs out of the kites but between the dolphin and the kingfish they barely have a chance to get your bait. Multiple times already this month we've had two or three dolphin on while a sailfish is trying to eat another bait. Its been crazy. Oh yeah the sharks are "SNAPPIN" big hammerheads, thresher sharks, a couple of makos and some sandbar sharks as well as bull sharks. On the wrecks the big amberjacks have taken up a strong residence as well as a few groupers, good luck getting a bait past the jacks though. They have been big, aggressive and strong as ever. Bottom fishing for snappers and tilefish has been great too. I love Fishing in April!!
Oh Yeah and the Daytime sword fishing is off the chain and the night time swords are biting too!!
