Saltwater Charter Fishing, Freshwater Fishing Guides

Complete resource guide for anglers looking for fishing charters to fishing forums. Maybe you are looking for a saltwater fishing charter trip to Key West Florida and want to know what the guides have been catching recently. You probably already know Key West and the rest of the Florida Keys has great fishing but maybe aren't sure what they catch and exactly when they catch it. That's what is great about internet fishing reports, anglers can get information from a fishing report right on their home computer where as little as 10 years ago they had no way of knowing how the fishing was at any given time of the year unless they lived there. Now the Key West fishing guides regularly post their Key West fishing reports for those anglers that may be coming to town on a Key West fishing trip.

Not only do we carry Key West fishing reports but we have reports available for other regions like the Northeast or Southern California plus we have freshwater fishing reports for bass fishing, salmon fishing, or other species from area lakes, rivers, and reservoirs across America. If you don't see a fishing report for your area or for some other fishing destination it only means that no anglers have posted from that particular region yet in which case we hope you would post your fishing report.

Kona Hawaii Fishing Report – Apr. wrap-up.

April was pretty decent for the blue marlin bite. Some good size ones were caught but we still haven’t seen a grander so far this year. The spearfish bite was on and off throughout the month and even a few striped marlin were caught but about the middle of the month, the trolling bite really slowed down. Even the mahi mahi bite that had been going strong slowed. Then the ono arrived! They showed up early this year. Fish showing up early in their seasons seems to be an ongoing trend lately. If you’re a regular reader of my fishing reports you might remember that the spearfish showed up early and so did the mahi mahi.

Ahi season usually kicks off about the middle of May but they too have been showing up with more frequency. I recently had a trip where only 30 minutes out of the harbor, we caught a mahi mahi. Then another, then another. The next hook up was a marlin about 150 lbs. Soon after that we caught an 82 lb. ahi. All of that happened in a two hour period. I only had one guy on board with me that day and after the ahi, he said he had had enough so we trolled home. Captains and crews back at the harbor asked if I had gone into ono lane on the way home to try to get the “sweep” (The 4 major flag fish). Although I had thought about doing that, it was a hectic two hours for me too. I run a 35’ flybridge boat single handed so with all the back-to-back action, I was as tired as my angler. I just figured

Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat and Capt. Zsak

Charlie Gordon from Massachusetts, along with Marissa Baker from Connecticut chartered the Top Shot Sportfishing Charter Boat team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the Bahia Mar Yachting Center, 801 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316. Charles was interested in catching some eating fish.

Twenty minutes after leaving the dock, fishing lines were at the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale in 120 ft. of water, 1.8 miles from shore. We started off trolling with two #8 plainers down, one with a 3 ½ blue reflector drone spoon and the other with a pink and blue sea witch in front of a double hooked Bonito strip. For surface baits we went with two Ballyhoos and two Bonito strips. We trolled the reefs zig-zagging in and out from 100 to 300 ft. of water. The two anglers took turns bringing in a total of four Bonitos, three Tunas and one Skip Jack Tuna. We decided to make a drop over a wreck in 250 ft. of water with live Bullets. Charlie was our first angler and he reeled in a 35 lb. Amberjack – pictures were taken and the fish was released. Next up was Marissa and she reeled in a 44 lb. Amberjack, which was also released.

From there we decided to do some live bait fishing with a full rack out of Bullets, fishing on the edge of the drop off. Right rigger!!! A good explosion on the bait!! Charles hopped into the

Springtime backcountry catching is in full swing here at Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River, water temperatures have risen through the 60’s to the low 70’s bringing the migration of game fish through the area, jack crevalle, bluefish, ladyfish, pompano, bait fish like mullet, glass minnows and pilchards. Resident fish seatrout, redfish, sheepshead, snappers, and black drum also feeding on the bait schools and the local shrimp which run here in spring, making a live shrimp hard to beat for a go to bait. Multiple hookups are fun with schooling fish and sometimes surface action with attacks on baitfish and shrimp on the top. Local Linda brought her friends here visiting for spring out with me recently, we had a few good seatrout along with all the other fun species, Linda had the best speck of the morning……

Friend Lori caught the biggest jack crevalle of the trip………………

Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Topshotfishing and Capt. Zsak

Lou Sauter, George Sauter, Stacey Sauter, and John Mckenna from Ohio chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Fifteen/twenty minutes after leaving the dock, lines were in 120 ft. of water by the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale, 1.8 miles from shore. Lou did not want to troll so we went right into kite fishing. We set out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite in 150 ft. of water where a color change was forming, a good avenue for fish to travel down in. While waiting for their catch, Lou and his family were enjoying the beautiful Fort Lauderdale weather and eating donuts from his shop.

Left short!!!! Sailfish!!!!! As he chased the bait until finally the Sailfish ate the bait. Hooked up!!! The Sailfish came out of the water and showed his magnificent power while he greyhound away from the boat. Dave, our mate, was clearing the rest of the baits as another Sailfish was tailing down sea. We had no time to pitch bait to this Sailfish. We were in full reverse as we were backing down on the Sailfish with little line left on the reel. John was our angler and after a forty minute battle, Dave wired the Sailfish for picture taking and was released to fight again.

It was time to head back to the dock. The anglers retired into the a/c salon and enjoyed the relaxing trip back to the

Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Topshotfishing and Capt. Zsak

Dave, Amy, Erin, and Thomas Washington, along with Drew Bedn and Griff Sheposh all from Detroit chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Fifteen minutes after leaving the dock, we stopped to buy live Goggle Eyes from T&T Bait. From there we headed towards the sea buoy in Fort Lauderdale in 120 ft. of water, 1.8 miles from shore. We started trolling with two #8 plainers both with sea witches and double hooked Bonito strips. For surface baits, we went with two Ballyhoos and two Bonito strips. As we trolled the reefs, the anglers reeled in two Bonitos.

From there, I saw a color change forming to the east of Fort Lauderdale and headed out towards it. We set out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite and one Shark bait on the bottom in 180 ft. of water.

Right long!!! The bait is getting very nervous!!! Sailfish!!! – as the dorsal fin exits the water chasing down the Goggle Eye. Hooked up!!! The Sailfish came out of the water to show his magnificent neon colors while the sun glistened down on his body. Thomas was our angler, and the rest of the crew cheered him on. After a thirty-five minute fight, Dave, our mate, wired the Sailfish – pictures were taken and the Sailfish was released to fight again

Kona Hawaii Fishing Report – Mar. wrap-up.

While March isn’t known to be a hot month for blue marlin, there were certainly plenty caught this month. March has long been known as the best “grander” month for Kona but so far, no granders yet for the year. Last year was the first time in a long time that no granders were caught here. There were very few striped marlin caught this month even though it’s still season for them. We’re right in the middle of spearfish season and it’s been a good month for them. There were even some sailfish caught. Overall, March was a good month for billfish.

As I said last month, mahi mahi season has started and so far it’s been a good one. We get a spring run and a fall run on mahi mahi and as a general rule, the spring run mahi mahi tend to be small in size but this spring, the majority of them have been pretty good size. Speaking of good size, it’s not ono season yet but the guys who have spent their time trolling the nearshore waters for them, while not catching very many, they have been catching some real big ones. The ahi bite has been pretty decent for this time of the year.

Normally I wind up the fishing report with bottom fishing but this month I will end with the crazy FAD (fish aggregation device) situation. As I mentioned last month, F buoy was replaced and was only out there for 9 days and then it went missing. The rumors started flying. All of the rumors are of course FACT and not fake

Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Topshotfishing and Capt. Zsak

Brad and Renee Lafountain along with their children, Savannah, Alexis and Zachary, from Vermont chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Lafountain were in Fort Lauderdale on vacation and decided to add a fishing excursion to their busy vacation schedule. We had sunny skies with temperatures in the mid 80’s.

Fifteen/twenty minutes after leaving the dock, we were deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale by the sea buoy, 1.8 miles from shore, in 120 ft. of water. We started out trolling with two plainers down and sea witches with a double hooked Bonito strip behind them. For top baits, we went with four Bonito strips. My plan was to troll to one of our artificial wrecks located in 225 ft. of water. For the past few days, we have been catching some Amberjacks and Groupers on the wrecks. We had some live bait left over from our previous charter so we put down a live Goggle Eye on top of the wreck. We had a couple of misses, but then hooked up – Zach was our angler and reeled in an Amberjack. Nice job Zach!!

From there we went out to 360 ft. of water and put out two Shark baits – a surface and bottom – and a kite with two live Goggles Eyes. As the family was discussing their vacation, Sailfish right long!!! – Sailfish right short!!!! – Double Header. Both Sailfish came out of the water immediately

Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Topshotfishing and Capt. Zsak

Tim Robinson and Tony “Scott” Jones from Mississippi chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. As Tim and Tony boarded the boat, I asked them what type of fishing they were interested in. They responded – Sailfish!!!

On the way out we stopped at T&T Bait located in Fort Lauderdale at Port Everglades to purchase a dozen live Goggles Eyes. From there we headed out southeast of Fort Lauderdale – I stopped at 180 ft. of water, which is 2 miles off shore. The wind was blowing from the east at 15-20 miles an hour with sporty conditions. We put out two kites with two live Goggle Eyes from each kite while the anglers were waiting for the predator’s arrival, enjoying their conversations and sipping on their drinks.

Right long!!! Chopped off, as the bait was cut in half – a predator with teeth – but no Sailfish. We reset and waited again for the predator. Forty-five minutes past and then he made his appearance. The black shadow appeared on the left short, dorsal and bill out of the water, frantically chasing the live Goggle Eye. Hooked up!!! Sailfish on!!! The Sailfish came out of the water and showed his gleaming neon colors, reflecting from the sun shinning down on him. Tony was the angler and he hopped into the fighting chair to have fun. After a twenty-five minute fight, Tony subdued the Sailfish, and

Fort Lauderdale Fishing with Topshotfishing and Capt. Zsak

Jennifer and John Dube, along with their friend, Tristan Lapierre from Quebec chartered the Topshotfishing team to do some deep sea big game sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The gang was on vacation from Canada, enjoying the Fort Lauderdale warm weather.

Fifteen/twenty minutes after leaving the dock, we were deep sea sport fishing in Fort Lauderdale by the sea buoy, 1.8 miles from shore, in 120 ft. of water. We started out trolling with two plainers down and sea witches with a double hooked Bonito strip behind them. For top baits, we went with four Bonito strips. As we trolled on the outside of the reef, there were birds working the area east of Fort Lauderdale so I headed out towards the birds. The anglers took turns and caught four Black Fin Tunas in this area.

From there the anglers wanted to do some Shark fishing so I headed out to our Shark grounds, south of Fort Lauderdale in 350 ft. of water. We put out three Shark baits – one surface, one midrange and one bottom. With a slight north current, we had a chum bag over the side for the scent. After a 45 minute wait, a dorsal fin appeared and attacked the surface bait. Hooked up!!! The fun was on – Tristan was the angler and he hopped into the fighting chair to enjoy the fun. After a forty minute battle, Dave, our mate, wired the 7 ½ ft., estimated 200 lb. Hammerhead Shark to the side of the boat
