Trip Summary

Fall Fishing Is Back, Baby! While we might not get what the rest of the country calls Fall, we do get our own version of a change of seasons. Fall fishing off Fort Lauderdale is absolutely phenomenal! The Mahi Mahi are biting and we’re seeing sailfish almost every day! A few other amazing species are also biting right now. Check out a bit of what we’ve been catching below! Every year in Fall, we experience a huge migration of baitfish along our coast including ballyhoo and mullet. These large schools of baitfish bring along a range of predators looking for an easy meal. Triple Dolphin in Shallow Water Dolphin are going crazy right in shallow waters. We are able to sight fish in about 35-50 feet of water where you can actually see to the bottom and spot the fish. We usually need to go to water that’s **hidden content** feet deep to see this kind of fishing charter action. Don’t miss your chance for this unique opportunity. More Mahi in Shallow Waters Like we said, big Mahi are in closer than any other time of year! This trip had 4 mahi on at one time and the customers managed to land all four of them. The catch included an absolute unit of a Bull mahi. Over 100lb of Mahi in the cooler! This trip was an emotional rollercoaster but when everything seemed lost we came through with an amazingly Good Hit. Limiting Out On Kingfish This group of customers were after kingfish and Captain JT was able to help them out. Our fishing charters are flexible and can be customized to suit a customer’s needs. If you want to catch fish or you want to catch a specific fish, Good Hit Sport Fishing is here to provide our fishing charter customers the experience they are looking for.

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
