The Kitefishing with live Goggle Eyes on the reef this week has been incredible. Big Kings, Blackfin Tunas, Mahia-Mahia, Hammerhead Sharks and a couple sailfish mixed in too. I have Been fishing in 100' of waters just to the south of Fort Lauderdale, Getting non-stop action on the surface of the water. Better Buy a lot of live bait because they will not last long. Also the Deep Dropping has been constant the last three months, Golden Tile Fish and Black Belly Rose Fish.

Mahi Madness in Fort Lauderdale, the summer slowly begins to end. But the Mahi Mahi Fishing is still in Full Force. We have been catching these beauty’s from **hidden content**ft of water, with our favorite bait being live pilchards. Our favorite outfit would have to be a light tackle spinning rod for Mahi, 12-20lb test. We have been sight fishing for the Dolphin, looking for birds, debris, and weed lines. The morning has been best for the Mahi, and we have noticed the bigger fish come later in the season. We are also excited for Sailfish Season which is right around the corner. October - February, very excited for this season. Contact us if you have any questions about Fishing Fort Lauderdale, we would be happy to answer them. Captain Mike Good Hit Sportfishing

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
July is for Mahi Mahi
July 16, 2019
July 2019 This Month’s post is dedicated to Mahi Mahi July has been a great month for catching Dolphin, we have snared Mahi on almost all of our offshore trips this month. We have been catching them from 650-1,000ft of water recently. The best way to target Mahi is “running and gunning” - that’s running the boat at high speeds and looking for looking for something to fish to. Mahi can be found anywhere there is life offshore - usually under sargassum weed lines, floating boards, or any large object floating in the water that has bait on it. Our favorite bait for Mahi has been live pilchards by the dozen. Using live bait is key for catching the Dolphin, and having lots of them is also important. Our set up of choice is a medium sized spinning rod for the best action and being able to cast to the fish is also key. The best find we had this July was a large pallet floating in 750ft of water It was not only a nice piece of debris, but it had a large turtle swimming around it that wouldn't leave. The Mahi tend to swim with these turtles given the right conditions. This pallet just happened to have 100’s of gaffer sized Mahi underneath it, and they were biting as fast as the bait would hit the water. We caught our limit on that trip! August and September are also great months for the Mahi, and Dolphin fishing seems to only get better. I hope you guys enjoyed my post, Captain Mike.
