Dania offshore Sat 5-26

Arrived at Dania in time for the 2nd shift with Quatin and launched about 6:15. The ExtremeKayakFishers were gone by 5:45. As we approached the 3rd reef, I used my ears as a fishfinder, as we could hear all the hooting and hollering from 1/2 mile away. By the time we got out to 200 feet they already had a King, a grouper and a blackfin. Current was about 1/2 mph to the north. Bonitos and tunas kept moving back and forth, so it was usually 2-4 hookups at a time, then quiet until the next wave. A couple of 15-20 lb blackfins were caught (not by me), videos likely coming later. I managed a baby almaco, 2 blue runners, 1 blackfin and a nice bonito (picture is fuzzy but it was my biggest fish today). Just about everything today was caught on speed jigs.

    You guys in Dania always hook up to nice fish.. nice ! Met up with Captain Yak Saturday, we paddled out to 280ft off of Fort Lauderdale. Got two Almaco jacks (one keeper, yummy). My trolled mullet got stripped twice even with a stinger hook. Captain hooked up to a really nice fish that put up a sweet drag pulling symphony but unfortunately lost it practically at the boat. On the way out we ran across a large pod of dolphins (the mammal). They were all around us chasing bait, this was a first for me.. was pretty amazing. Great hooking up with you Captain.. cant wait to get out there again.. :fishing
