Trip Summary

We were fishing 5 miles out front of Port Everglades, we started fishing after finding a giant weed line. We were trolling rigged Ballyhoo and Bonita strips with sea witches. After about 35 minutes with no bites; we received our first strike. Turns out we found a big school of dolphin, in the 5-10LB range. After catching our fill, we headed straight for the inlet with a cooler full of fresh Mahia. We eneded up with 10 Mahia Mahia, we released 6 or 7 which were smaller. Making it back to the dock before 11 am. The very next day we had a snapper trip, I heard the snappers were biting, and I had to see it for myself. We were fishing live Pilchards on the bottom in 130Ft of water. After about 30 minutes of fishing we catch our first mutton snapper, with non stop action until we left. We eneded up with 12 nice mutton snappers, and 2 nice black fin tunas. The summer Bite Has been HOT, with aproaching fall bite on its way. LETS GO FISHING!!! Captain Mike Good Hit Sportfishing

Fall Sailfish
Fall Sailfish
October 23, 2019
The Sail fishing has got off to a great start, we have been Seeing Sailfish since September 1st. We normally fish for Sails by kitefishing and dragging live baits when we do not have wind. On Good Hit Sportfishing we are live bait specialist, using live bait 90% of the time. We also like to use light tackle to target these fish, either 20lb spinner or 20lb conventional outfit. On our boats we use top of the line equipment, to make sure we do not have equipment failure. Having great equipment is a huge part of the battle when it comes to light tackle fishing. On October 4 th 2019, We hooked four sailfish at the same time. Landing 3 of the 4 sailfish with only one angler, he sure had his hands full with all these sailfish. His buddy’s were really kicking theirselves for not coming on that day! Alantic Sailfish are the most popular gamefish our customers like to target off of Fort Lauderdale. We target these fish only one mile off of the beach in Fort Laudersale. While winter approaches the more Sailfish we see, having the best number in November . We have been having the best luck with our 3/4 day fishing charter, leaving an hour earlier than the other boats and coming in an hour later than the other groups. Sometimes that extra hour in the morning really makes the difference. If you have any questions about Sail Fishing, message me at anytime. I would be happy to answer and questions about our fishery. I hope you guys enjoyed my post. Captain Mike, Good Hit Sportfishing
