As you can see by all the photos of anglers who have joined us here aboard the Marlin My Darlin on a deep sea fishing charter in Fort Lauderdale we have had some very nice catches. 90% of the fish in those photos were taken in water less than 150 feet in depth. A quick reference again in this report that 150 foot depth here is barely over a mile from the shore off greater Fort Lauderdale and the strong action continues if not right out front then very near to our inlet. As we have mentioned before this is a great time of year to bend the rods consistently along the reef lines and just off their edge and this has been holding true for some time now. As you can see in the photos of this report and our last one there are some Sailfish around. Once again those Sailfish have come to our baits in 150 feet of water or less. Fishing as in all endeavors has some catchy sayings that so very often ring true. “Never leave fish to find fish”. Pretty sensible right? How about “Don’t overshoot the fish” That one is dead on lately as the best fishing continues so near shore you can practically count the people on the beach as we cross back and forth over the reefs and wrecks.
Kingfsh, Tuna, False Albacore, Wahoo and Sailfish are all right there. Snappers and hard fighting Jacks of various species are holding regularly on structure and small wrecks in those same depths. Big summertime Barracudas muscling in on the action, and also some summertime Tiger Sharks along with others showing right there in those depths and slightly deeper if you wish to go a few rounds with one of them.
See you on the rip, and good fishing and tight lines to you all, from all of us here, @ Marlin My Darlin.
