Fort Lauderdale Florida Fishing Report

Report Date: May 19, 2009

The South Florida bite has been hot. This is the time of year we all wait for. The only factor that will influence the action is the weather. East-Souteast winds keep the fish moving through and they are hungry. As long as this pattern continues the bite should be strong.

Kingfish and Bonita are the main players but Dolphin and the straggling Sailfish are still showing on lucky days. We did get another nice Blackfin Tuna, a 27.5 pounder this time. It put up a great show on light spinning tackle. Inshore the Jack Crevalle are starting to show again. The Barracuda are in the inlet waiting on a frisky live bait to try to get past them.

The weather has been damp the last few days so I have kept busy doing other things but I plan to be out again tomorrow if it dries out some. I expect the same action for the next month or so. If you have a chance to try fishing this is the time to be here.

Sea Ya,
Captain Ron Mallet
