Port Everglades Inlet: 'Nice' Weather Makes For Tough Fishing
Report Date: March 13, 2014
Fort Lauderdale fishing the last few days has been either good or slow. With no wind to fly the kite, and no current, we slow trolled our live baits with a spread of 2 deep lines and 2 flat lines. On recent trips, we've been fishing around the Port Everglades Inlet. On Wednesday, we fished with Leo, but he was unable to close the deal after hooking a nice sailfish. The spindlebeak spit the hook after some nice tail-walking aerobatics. On Sunday, Leo returned for round two - this time he would not be denied. Leo and his party managed a doubleheader on sailfish right in front of the inlet, in 140 feet of water – both fish took live pilchards on weighted flats lines.
On Monday, again with no current and a very light breeze, we were only able to fly the kite for a very short time. The kite time produced one big bonito. So I decided to drop some live goggle eyes on wrecks in 200' to 250' in the area. The first bait dropped produced a mutton snapper. The second bait produced a nice 28 lb. cobia for Richard Barry.
March is usually a good month so come with us and you can catch a fish of a lifetime!
