Ft. Lauderdale fishing trips

Trip Summary

The recent cooler weather conditions have had a positive affect on our Ft. Lauderdale fishing trips. That nasty weather up north recently has lowered our temperatures in the early morning to the low to mid 50s, and that has been good news. We continue to enjoy a good amount of sun on most days. Very fishable with reasonable wind conditions offshore.The latest frontal system passed through here very quickly, bringing some Sailfish action. South Miami enjoyed the best fishing due to current conditions but we did get in on some of the action. That is Ben and 1st mate Brian J. with a nice catch and release Sailfish in the photo. As we stated the erratic current conditions have made it a little difficult but with some searching there are more fish available now. With the wind we have had some Mahi Mahi as well. These Mahi remain close to the reefline with the abundance of Flying Fish seeming to be a factor for their choice of that area. Kings are available but not in any numbers. Occasional Blackfins and full grown Bonito. Bottom fishing remains decent. Wahoo despite the moon phase are few and far between. Enjoy this weather, we certainly are, and tight lines as well from the crew @ Marlin My Darlin.

Ft. Lauderdale deep sea fishing report
Ft. Lauderdale deep sea fishing report
October 13, 2021
Good weather and good fishing have combined to make this a favorable fishing report update as we reach the midway point of October. Very comfortable sea conditions, not too many showers, not too much heat, and some pretty good catches for our anglers on their fishing charters in Ft. Lauderdale. Sailfish are working the reefs and just offshore. Bally Hoo are moving closer to shore and the Sails in addition to cruising the outer edges are also showing more and more up inside as they pursue these baitfish. Mahi-Mahi in small schools in these same depths. Wahoo just off the reefs and out into 500 feet of water, which is only a couple of miles outside our inlet. Blackfins and their cousins the Bonitos. We have had nice Mutton Snappers and larger Jacks on the wrecks. Sizable Barracudas along the reefs but some wrecks holding them as well. Swordfish activity offshore and we will finally get our chance at them tomorrow, our first Swordfish charter in a while. Father and son charter, and everybody is looking forward to the opportunity to get out there in the deep and try them. So the fishing within two miles of shore in depths up to 500 feet is quite productive with good fish and good action and we will be changing up and heading off into water in excess of 1500 feet in the morning. Expensive bucket list offshore fishing charter for our anglers, wish them and us luck. So good luck and tight lines also to all of you from all of us here @ Marlin My Darlin Sportfishing charters. See you on the rip.
