Good Hit 3.0- Light Tackle January
Good Hit 3.0- Light Tackle January
Jan 21, 2024 Fort Lauderdale
Hello fishing friends, Captain Mike here with Good Hit Sportfishing Hey there, it's Captain Mike from Good Hit Sportfishing with some January fishing news from Fort Lauderdale. While the rest of the world is experiencing freezing temperatures, we're lucky enough to have some of the warmest fishing areas in our region. This time of year, you can expect to target some red-hot fish, such as sailfish, mahi-mahi, blackfin tuna, snappers, sharks, Wahoo, and cobia. We've started the year strong with some impressive catches, including a cobia shark caught off the kite. This little guy put up a 40-minute fight on light tackle and was caught on a live goggle-eye. Amazingly, we've already seen a couple of mahi-mahi in attendance this January. Usually, we don't see these fish until the beginning of spring, but they're already showing up in the local area. Blackfin Tunas are also hitting the kite again, which is another fish that we don't expect until springtime. However, in Fort Lauderdale, we've already seen a couple of sizeable blackfin tuna. These fish are always a hit with our customers due to their acrobatics, delicious sushi-grade meat, and incredible light tackle fight. At GoodHit Sportfishing, we're always happy to fish for whatever our customers want. If you have a custom trip in mind and want to target a particular species, let us know. We're open to ideas and will tailor our fishing trips to meet your specific needs. We use various fishing styles, tactics, and bait at GoodHit Sportfishing in January. Our favorite baits include goggle-eye, threadfin hearing, pilchards, and ballyhoos. Our tactics include kite fishing, drifting, anchoring, and deep dropping. Most of these tactics use live bait, and we sometimes troll. However, this time of year, all the biggest fish in our photos were caught using live baits, mainly out of the kite, some drifting, and some deep dropping. Thanks for reading my post - Captain Mike, Good Hit
