We offer these Florida Fishing Reports for all anglers that fish here everyday or may just be coming to visit. If you would like to you are welcome to post as many Florida Fishing Reports as you like.

Florida Fishing Reports, Detailed Fishing Reports

Please enjoy our fishing reports and please post your own report for your state or region. Doesn't matter where you live or what region you fish as we try to display fishing reports for all types and styles of fishing. Fly fishing, surf fishing, wade fishing, to fishing 100 miles offshore in the Gulf Stream off the mid-atlantic coast are just some of the types of fishing reports we display. And that was just the saltwater fishing which is far outnumbered by all the types of freshwater fishing reports we see. We get freshwater reports for bass fishing in Mississippi to mountain stream fishing for trout in Colorado to Salmon fishing in the Great Lakes. Speaking of the Great Lakes, Michigan seems to be very popular for charter boat Captains and their fishing reports.

Some anglers just like to read certain fishing reports from exotic locales and dream about the day they will be able to take a fishing trip to whatever fishing paradise they are thinking about. For instance we have Key West fishing reports that tell us about extreme light tackle fishing and the excitiment of fighting a 100 pound tarpon in 3 feet of water while he sometimes walks on water during his effort to escape the pull of the angler and his rod n reel. Key West provides plenty of fishing action but for some it is not a likely destination so they read the reports and dream about a Key West fishing trip. Who knows? In time maybe those anglers that dream about fishing in a far off paradise will get their wish eventually and instead of their own Florida Fishing Reports they will write a report about their tropical island fishing vacation.

Fishing Report:

This week I am officially kicking off the Lady Pamela II sportfishing’s, fish of the week series, where I am going to discuss a different species of fish that we catch here in the waters off south Florida. My kickoff species is the venerable Atlantic sailfish (Istiophorus albicans), the most popular of the billfishes found in our waters. These are migratory pelagic fish that range the offshore waters from as far north as Newfoundland all the way south through the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, to Argentina. We catch sailfish year-round off Ft. Lauderdale and Hollywood, though they are particularly plentiful around January through early May. There is also a fall bite in October and November, with fish showing up following cold fronts as they move through the area. There may not be as many fish this time of the year, but they tend to be very aggressive chasing the baits we put out.

Kitefishing is my preferred method for targeting sails, using live goggleyes as surface baits below the kites. We’ll typically set up in 180 to 220 feet of water with 4-6 baits below the kites. It is always exciting to see fired up sails racing to attack the baits! If the winds are not conducive to kite flying, we will troll rigged ballyhoo with seawitch skirts outside the reef edge, searching for bills. Even if the sailfish are not biting we’ll land bonitos or kingfish on the troll.

Atlantic sailfish can grow up to 10 feet long and over 100 lbs., though the fish in south Florida typically range from 5-8 feet and 50-70 lbs. Whatever size they are, they can put on some fantastic aerial displays that will get the crew in the cockpit jumping. Even more exciting are multiple hookups when a school of sails finds the baits. I recall one trip when six sails hit six baits at same time, skyrocketing out of the water. If only I had a video camera!

Tight Lines,
Capt. David Ide
