Fort Lauderdale Florida fishing report

Report Date: October 28, 2008

We have our first taste of the upcoming winter today. It started out in the upper 50s and they forecast 40s tonight!!! That is cold for South Florida even if you are reading this in North Dakota. The price to pay is worth it though. Before the front this weekend we got into some real nice Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) while kite fishing only a mile outside our inlet. Not many but all nice 10-15 pounders. A few Kingfish were mixed in too. No Sailfish yet but I predict to see them show by the weekend with the north breeze and cool temps we are getting.

Today we stayed closer to the beach and did some light tackle angling. It was awesome action using live shrinp and chum. We had 4 dozen+ baits and everyone got eaten. Spanish Mackerel, Cero Mackerel, Yellowtail Snapper, Grouper, Blue Runner, YellowJack, Grunt, and Mangrove Snapper made up most of the catch. We did keep a few larger species for the table but most were released and or undersize. A few real bruiers took the line into the rocks and quickly gained freedom and lots of Macs cut offs. Generally hot action and a cool day.

The next few weeks should continue to bring this kind of bite if you pick the lucky timing with the fronts. They are unpredictable to some point so don't ask me to pick them for you. I leave the luck game up to you.

Sea Ya,
Captain Ron Mallet
