The weather here for our fishing charters in Ft. Lauderdale remains much more predictable than the fishing. The fleet does ok one day and struggles the next with always the possibility of a good catch, but also days with the very real possibility of a slow day offshore. This winter has proven to be one of the most erratic and unpredictable of any winters in many years. That coming from an (slightly)older gentleman (myself) with over 45 years at charter fishing here in Ft. Lauderdale. Lots of fish, lots of miles on that car, and the South Florida sun wrinkles to prove it. The weather has proven quite predictable, being a very warm and mild winter. Low 80s today for a high as many to the north get hammered again. And we are predictable here. Honest straightforward fishing reports, 100% effort every charter, fish jumping in the boat or exhibiting lockjaw. Good hand, bad hand, Vegas South, and that’s the way it is. Here’s hoping your day offshore gets a little fish blood on your shirt. As always we have included photos of recent anglers who have joined us here aboard Marlin My Darlin.
