Ft. Lauderdale fishing charter report mid August

As we pass the midway point of August we find warm weather and on many days very calm sea conditions. We continue to direct a lot of our mid August efforts on our fishing charters in Ft. Lauderdale to the areas just offshore of the main reef line which has us fishing in depths of 90 to 500 feet at just over two miles off the beach. Bonitos along this reef area have drawn some very nice Wahoo into those depths. We have had a couple between 45 and 55 pounds. Wish this were an everyday fish but far from it, but they are around and certainly get some attention in tactics and attention at the dock as well. Kingfish in the shallower areas with the Bonito, which is actually properly called a False Albacore. Current has recently been strong making bottom fishing difficult but we managed a few Jacks and Grouper. Sharks around, they like a good current. Slim pickins on the Sailfish, very scattered. Lots of Barracudas of all sizes in all depths, some quite large. We are coming off our summer season and although fishing every day we have some gaps in the schedule. Competitive pricing as always but some discount available as we head into the fall, and the only way to get access to those specials is directly with Capt. JJ @ 954-778-8173.Enjoy the photos of some of our anglers, tight lines, and we’ll see you on the rip.
