Report Date: November 18, 2014
On Thursday, we fished with 3 guys from Canada. Before leaving the inlet we bought a dozen live google eyes and 2 dozen pilchards. On our way out of the inlet, they informed me it was their first time fishing in saltwater. I said ok, nice, I'll do my best to make it a memorable trip.
With a northeast wind at about 10 knots and beautiful sunshine, I decided to go north and start in 135' off of the Steeple near Fort Lauderdale. It didn't take long, the first bait to hit the water was eaten immediately – and we had a nice mahi jumping all around the boat. In between the mahi action, I decided to put a few baits on the wreck. They produced a nice amberjack and one African pompano. Afterwards, we decided to go back to fishing the top of the water column and caught more mahi (dolphin).
At the end of the trip they ended up with a total of 6 nice mahi for dinner! They were all happy and each of them had a big smile on their face. They said their saltwater fishing trip was a dream come true! Thank you!
Good Luck & Tight Lines,
