Fishing Outlook for October Can't Post

Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report - October 2009

It may not be snowing or below 50, but between the north winds, the blue water and thousands of bait fish, it sure does feel like winter has arrived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Our first very welcomed cold front has come and gone and was much appreciated by us Fort Lauderdale fishermen. It blew 15-20 out of the northeast and gave us a few cool October afternoons. Not only were the two days extremely refreshing, the Sailfish bite offshore was solid and exactly what we anticipated.

October has provided a mixed bag of fish, from giant Wahoo taking runs to gaffer size Mahi Mahi, Kingfish, Bonito and Blackfin Tuna on the troll. And as November and December approach us, we only expect fishing to improve in South Florida with the Sailfish bite. Large pods of baitfish are chugginí it down from the north and the bigger fish tend to follow. Expect to see the Atlantic Sailfish free jumping within feet of the boat and big Dolphin lookiní to eat your bait. The Ballerina of the Sea puts up a wicked fight and many high fives will be given after the battle.

The Wahoo was definitely a hot item offshore this month. Between the dark, electric blue color above and the shiny, vertical stripes throughout, you canít mistake this fish especially when itís smoking your reel. The Lady Pamela II was very successful with the Wahoo bite and we sure did land some monsters that couldíve fed a village. Several anglers went home with smiles and sore arms after reeling in this prize game fish offshore in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Tight Lines!
