Barracuda's, Amberjack's & Kingfish offshore Fort Lauderdale
Captain Paul and I loaded up our afternoon trip and headed out Shallow Harbor around 1:15. Right as we got out of Port Everglades, a few live bonitos were ours. Bonitos make great bait, so we dropped some bait hoping to get a bite. We hooked a barracuda right off the bat. Out angler Greg, from Ohio, had never caught a fish in his life. He couldn't believe his eyes when he saw the teeth on the cuda. Trolling gear was out with strips on the planners as we landed out first kingfish of the day, a solid 10 lb'der. We still had some bonito to spare for bait so we headed to a shipwreck. First few drops didn't do much for us, until our third drop when a monster amberjack ate the bait. We had quite the mixed bag of fish today. Awesome catch!
