Fishing the farmers from Florida off Fort Lauderdale

Today we had a 2-boat charter with Hooked Up and Hooked Up 2.

Aboard the Hooked Up today we fished with David, Shan, Josh, Terry and Dave all from Florida.

We started out trolling our way to the south and landed a few kingfish and bonitos.

Once we got off the coast of Holly Wood Florida we brought in the trolling gear and set out our kites with 3 live baits suspended from them along with a couple shark baits set down deep.

It seemed that today was our day because before we knew it we were doing battle with a monster spinner shark.

Soon after catching and releasing him we caught a couple Mahi Mahi.

Than we got 3 fish on at the same time and they were all pulling drag like mad dogs. I’ve got to say that 9 out of 10 times we get Hooked Up we know what kind of fish we’ve got on BUT this time we just did not know.

They did not jump so we knew they were not sailfish or Mahi Mahi they just stayed down fought hard and fast.

As we got the first one to the boat I must admit it was a little of a disappointment when I laid my eyes on a jack carvel.

At this point we knew what the other 2 were and while they may not be a good eating fish we had a ball fighting them all the same.

Once we got done fighting the jacks we went right back to fishing when all of a sudden Mr. Hammerhead shows up and BAM back to fighting fish we went. After a good 15 to 20 min battle we had another shark to the boat.

We got a few pictures and a quick measurement and watched him swim away in good shape.

As our angler wrote in our fishing reports page GREAT DAY!!

Thanks again to all of our anglers today for fishing with the Hooked Up Team.
