Fort Lauderdale Fishing Early October

This week’s charter fishing report. The last few weeks have been really good fishing offshore for mahi-mahi and small Blackfin Tuna. October is one of the best months for Mahi Mahi. Most boats that go, are consistently catching school size fish from around 3 to 8 pounds. The Wahoo Fishing has definitely got a lot more consistent as well. The small Bonita’s are here in abundance which always brings good Wahoo Fishing. We’ve had good catches of fish in the last 10 days from 20 to 45 pounds. Trolling Along The Reef has started to slow down with very few larger Bonitas and King Mackerel being caught. The Ship Wreck fishing remains good with decent catches of Amberjacks, small snappers. We have also had an explosion of Cudera’s the last few weeks. These fish are very uncommon in our area. We are generally lucky if we catch one or two in a good year. The last seven days we have caught 5 with some fish being as big as 50 to 60 pounds. this is one of those uncommon things that we see from time to time but we definitely appreciate when the good Lord sends us a Gift. The Sailfish season is also starting up. With cooler weather on the way, we definitely look forward to Live Bait and Kite Fishing in cool weather. The Sailfish season starts in October and runs all the way through May with the peak season being February and March. The inshore fishing remains excellent with the Mullet Runs, still in full swing, Tarpon, Jacks, Sharks, Barracudas, and Snook, are being caught in abundance along the beaches, inlets and insure around the docks. These mullet, which always migrate South every single year in October. Migrate down the coast of Florida always bring with them a good Fishing. If you have a small boat, definitely get out on the water and take advantage of that. Give us a call. If you’re looking to book a charter we have plenty of availability open the next several months.
