Ft. Lauderdale fishing trips
February 03, 2015 Fort Lauderdale 1 photo
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
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.
Ft. Lauderdale fishing charter report 1
October 6, 2021
And into October we go. A bit of wind for a couple of days chopped it up offshore but not nearly enough to stop the fleet from fishing. That wind has presently subsided and we continue to totally evade that really big wind we all dread as the hurricanes, although many, have taken paths that have kept us unscathed. Happily unscathed. Decent weather and decent fishing. Quite a few photos of recent anglers included with this report on our fishing charters in Ft. Lauderdale. King, Tunas, Mahi-Mahi, numerous large Barracudas,a couple of more Sailfish, Bonito and we had a couple of days of good Wahoo catches. And a fine catch and release Shark for 11 year old Ally in that one picture fishing with her family. We continue to troll for the bulk of our charters and live bait only occasionally for pelagics, but almost exclusively live bait when targeting larger bottom fish. But seasons change and with them the fishing trends change as well and soon some of those live baits will be spending their time being presented closer to if not directly on the surface. Always book directly with Capt. Rick @ **hidden content**. 7 AM-9PM please. That's EST. Thanks, tight lines from all of us here @ Marlin My Darlin
Ft. Lauderdale fishing charter offshore

Essentially flat calm seas continue to greet us every morning. There are the expected scattered showers to deal with but none so serious as to force a cancellation of a charter. Loads of juvenile Bonito (we call them bullets due to their speed) have moved in and they are chocolate cake to game fish. Some very nice fish this week as larger game fish follow the bait fish into our Ft. Lauderdale fishing area, and also the wrecks for the most part continue to yield big Amberjacks and you'll see a second nice Cubera Snapper that hit the box posted in the photos with this fishing report. School Kings along the reef line on the troll. Some larger ones on live bait. Scattered Mahi and Tunas. Rosebelly Perch out in the deep deep **hidden content**') on the electric reel. Sailfish two of the last three days. Absolutely bosco Cudas on some wrecks have provided good fun on light tackle. And our first taste of Fall is rolling in with a “cool” front. More bait on the way. If you have kids bring them. Enjoy the photos of anglers who have joined us here for a fishing charter in Ft. Lauderdale. See you on the rip.
