June 27, 2024 Fort Lauderdale Charter Fishing Report

Hello fellow anglers, The last couple of weeks have truly felt like summer in full swing, with hot temperatures and late afternoon thunderstorms gracing us daily. Such conditions often bring favorable opportunities for fishing, and this summer has been no exception.

Reef Fishing Update The summertime migration of Bonitas and Kingfish has officially started along the reefs, accompanied by healthy numbers of Blackfin Tunas. There’s even been the occasional Wahoo sighting, adding a bit of excitement to our outings. The reef fishing has been very productive and promises great experiences for those keen on these species.

Offshore Fishing Report Offshore Mahi fishing has been outstanding over the past few weeks. Several boats have reported reaching their limits, although there have been quite a few smaller catches mixed in. While some of these smaller fish are not yet legal size, it’s a positive indicator for the future of Mahi fisheries.

Bottom Fishing Insight On the bottom fishing front, conditions have been less ideal due to weak currents and murky water. This has resulted in fewer Jacks; however, anglers have still enjoyed decent catches of small Vermillion Snapper, Mutton Snapper, and Yellowtail Snapper. The catch consistency has been a morale booster despite the slower action on the wrecks.

Kite Fishing Observations Kite fishing has been challenging due to the calm seas and lack of wind, typical of summertime conditions. Nevertheless, on the few days we’ve managed to set up kites, there has been success with Blackfin Tuna, Kingfish, Barracudas, and even Sailfish—the highlight for many.

Shark Fishing Outlook Summertime shark fishing has definitely ramped up, with frequent catches of large Sandbar Sharks, Bull Sharks, Hammerheads, and even some Tigers. If you have shark fishing on your bucket list, now is the perfect time to venture out and make that dream a reality.
