There is a lot of activity fishing the Fort Lauderdale waters this week. Sharks, sailfish, blackfin tuna and mahi-mahi are all biting on the outside edge of the reef. Wrecks are also loaded up with good fish. Today, we had some folks that wanted to go out and do some bottom fishing and get some fish they could take home to cook up. So we went out and did some deep dropping around the 250-350ft shipwrecks. The fish were biting. We caught about 20 vermillion snappers, a couple jacks that we threw back and a couple nice size snowy groupers. It was a good action trip. Sportfishing and drift fishing trips are both coming in with good catches this week. May is always a good month for fishing and this May is no exception. For the next month or so, we should have the best fishing Fort Lauderdale ...full report

The fishing on Lake Toho has been good this week using live wild shiners. My half day trips averaged 10-12 fish per trip. The biggest bass of the week was 7 1/2 lbs. Outsides grasslines have been productive as well as slow trolling edges. Bass Assassin's fished weightless and rattletraps got us some decent fish as well. The fishing should continue to improve as the weather warms.

The fishing out of Hernando Beach has been very productive. We have had a few mild fronts come through from the North which made it difficult to find quality fish some days, but the inshore bite continues to be good throughout the entire region.
The trout fishing has been good, but anglers need to be ready to fish a variety of spots until they locate bigger fish. Drifting deeper grass flats in 8 - 10 ft of water has put some nice trout in the cooler on recent trips. Working a 3" Gulp shrimp or a Lil John jerk bait on a 1/4 oz. jig has been very effective. Work these baits slowly across the bottom, but give them enough action to draw attention. This tactic will also catch small shark, sea bass, blue fish, mackerel, and lady fish.

May is here and the Boca Grande Tarpon fishing season is in full swing. Thousands of Tarpon have made their way to Southwest Florida and the bite has been pretty good. Boca Grande fishing charters have not only been producing some great Tarpon fishing but the flats’ fishing has been very good as well. Snook, redfish, big trout, Spanish mackerel, Mangrove snapper and cobia have all been caught in recent weeks.
The tarpon are here and for most of May, June and July they will be the focus of Boca Grande fishing charters. I have had some great days recently landing as many as 9 and jumping up to 15 fish in a single day. Every day is not like that but that will give you an idea of just how many tarpon are here in the Boca Grande area. If you are looking to book a Boca Grande tarpon fishing ...full report

The views across the water from the sunny beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida have been those of the Lady Pamela II sportfishing fleet trolling the reefs for game fish. This morning Captain Darin and Justin had good luck aboard the Lady Pamela II, trolling up a mix of blackfin tunas and kingfish. They also boated a nice mahi-mahi around 30 lbs. That was a pretty good catch considering that fish had to battle through the blackfin tunas and kingfish to grab the bait!
The Lady Pamela II was back out in the afternoon bringing in some more blackfin tunas. They also caught a nice sailfish and a hammerhead shark. The Lady Pamela IV was also out and they too hooked up a hammerhead shark. The anglers also had fun catching blackfins and a couple of mahi-mahi. Fort Lauderdale is not ...full report

Clients often ask what the best time of year yields the best catches and I always tell them that with out a doubt, April is it. Even slow days in April can be pretty good with sailfish and kingfish on almost every trip. Another great part of the spring fishing is the variety of target species that are in the area. A great example of this is the recent sighting of giant bluefin tuna and the capture and release of a great white shark estimated at around a thousand pounds. We’ve also had a large number of small to large bluefish swarm some areas in great numbers. Keep in mind that this is in addition to the usual species that we catch which include sails, tuna, kingfish, cobia, bonito, dolphin, and a myriad of bottom species. Many of the fish caught in the spring are also the largest specimens ...full report

Hello fellow anglers. What a great fishing trip, a wonderful day on the water with a lovely couple in from Mississippi. Mrs. Cindy, recently in all the way from Afghanistan, came to enjoy some of the best fishing anywhere in the world. Von gave a plan of attack and he wanted Cindy to tussle with a big Redfish before she was planned to deploy back to Afghanistan on Monday morning. First we needed some fish for a fish fry and I had the Trout located in an interior lake and the plan was set.
I met Von and Cindy at 5:30 at the dock and they were chomping at the bit, ready for the action that was to come. I loaded up for the short run to an interior lake close to the dock and about 3 casts later Cindy was hooked up and she jumped out to a four to nothing lead before Von got in on the action. ...full report

Jacksonville - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fishing has been outstanding for big speckled trout the last 2 months. The spring and summer months are great for fishing top water plugs and lipped diving crank baits in deep drop offs along the St Johns River. I have had the most success using "walk the dog" style lures such as a Zara Spook and Skitter Walk plugs in the early morning low and late afternoon low light situations. Experiencing the explosive strike of a big 8 pound gator trout is an awesome sight!
The St Johns river is loaded with small shad and mullet, so it's important to "match the hatch" when selecting a sub surface lure. The Swim n Image made by Heddon and Bombers Long A lipped diver lures have been deadly for trout.
