Early April fishing in Ft. Lauderdale

Spring has arrived (officially). A warm toasty 89 degrees here this afternoon for our fishing charter in Ft. Lauderdale this clear and almost flat calm Sunday. Snappers today, Amberjack, some Kings and Bonitos. We have had a fair number of Blackfin Tunas and some Wahoos this past week since our last report. Sailfish remain scattered in our area with only an occasional fish. Shark season is underway and Hammerheads are showing up in the spread when we target sharks, and also showing up when we aren’t, such as aiming for Sails. Have had some good sized Amberjacks on the deep wrecks and this afternoon our afternoon charter found 5 Kings along the reef line. There have been very few Kings other than an occasional larger one. The Blackfins can bite any time of day but they continue to pop up best in the afternoon. So don’t be reserved about taking a fishing charter in Ft. Lauderdale in the afternoon in the near future as afternoons have been decidedly stronger for those Tunas. Most all are footballs but as you see in the one photo there are some larger ones. That fish is a beauty, very few that size. Wishing everyone a good week. We are busy, phone me direct in advance @ 954-778-8173 to have the best shot on the day you prefer.
