trip description for Full Day Trolling Fun- 45' in Fort Lauderdale

Off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, there are a couple different techniques for trolling: trolling the reefs for Kingfish and Bonitos and trolling offshore for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tunas, and sometimes even a Blue Marlin! **Trolling the Reef** 90% of your bites will be on the deep lines, so Captain Taco will troll with 2 planner boards that take the bait about 45 feet down along with 3 baits skipping across the surface at about 5 to 6 knots. If you get a Kingfish bite 9 out of 10 times both deep rods will get hit at the same time. These fish like to travel in schools so Captain Taco will steer the boat in big circles dragging the baits around where you got the first bit and BAM every time you circle you should get another bite. (Well that’s how it ideally would work of course) **Trolling Offshore** When trolling offshore Captain Taco will pump the gas a little to cover more ground. You'll usually troll 5 to 6 baits on the surface at 6 to 8 knots. He doesn't like trolling the planners offshore due to the resistance that the planners cause, but just about anything floating out there might hold some fish. And I mean anything if he spots a weed patch, grass line, or even a piece of driftwood, you know Captain Taco's gonna pull the baits past it to see if anybody's home. Both are great options, and you might even have enough time to try a little of both! No matter what, you are sure to have a great time fishing in Ft. Lauderdale with Captain Taco. His charter is not one of those stuffy Ft. Lauderdale fishing charters where the mate and captain are stuck on themselves and barely talk to you. They want you to party, relax, or do whatever you like to do. In his mind, his job is to make your time aboard the "Hooked Up" the most enjoyable time a person can have fishing in Ft Lauderdale. All Taco's trips come with his Full-Service Package which includes an experienced captain & mate, all necessary fishing licenses, top-of-the-line rods, reels & tackle, a cooler loaded with ice for your beers & sodas, and a lot of laughs & a great time! All he recommends you bring along with you is some food and drink for your voyage, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a little luck! Read More

Head offshore with Captain Raul for an epic half or full day adventure off Miami Beach. The beauty of the Miami beach fishery is its crazy close proximity to the deep water. While most fishing destinations require a full day aboard the boat in order to get far enough offshore, in Miami, you can easily hook into some tasty and large sportfish on a half-day adventure. Going out for a full day, however, gives you enough time to reach really deep fishing spots and go after the biggest, fastest fish out there. Some of your targets can be Swordfish, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, and more. Your fishing equipment is fully covered by the captain, so all you need to bring are you favorite snacks and drinks, and Captain Raul will take care of the rest! Read More

What is lane snapper fishing in Fort Lauderdale all about?

In Fort Lauderdale, anglers have the opportunity to target lane snapper, a popular species known for its delicious taste and abundance in the offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Lane snapper, characterized by their distinct yellow or pink stripes running along their sides, can be found near reefs, wrecks, and other underwater structures. These fish typically inhabit depths ranging from around 60 to 300 feet, making them accessible to anglers venturing offshore from Fort Lauderdale.

What techniques are popular for catching lane snapper in Fort Lauderdale?

In Fort Lauderdale, anglers employ various effective techniques to target lane snapper in the offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean. One common method for catching lane snapper is bottom fishing near reefs, wrecks, or other underwater structures where these fish congregate. Anglers typically anchor their boats and use light to medium tackle with rigs baited with cut squid, shrimp, or small baitfish. By dropping their lines to the ocean floor and presenting their baits near the structure, anglers can entice strikes from lane snapper as they forage for food.

Another successful technique for lane snapper fishing in Fort Lauderdale is drift fishing over offshore reefs or ledges. Anglers drift with the current while presenting baits such as squid strips, cut bait, or live baitfish at various depths to entice strikes from lane snapper.

Anglers may use depth finders or fish finders to locate promising spots and adjust their drift accordingly to maximize their chances of success.

Vertical jigging involves dropping metal jigs or weighted rigs to the ocean floor and jigging them up and down to mimic the movements of injured baitfish. Lane snapper are known to be attracted to the erratic action of jigs and may strike aggressively when presented with this enticing lure. Vertical jigging allows anglers to cover a wide range of depths quickly, making it an effective technique for targeting lane snapper in varying offshore environments.

These fish can be found in the offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean, where they roam in schools around floating debris, weed lines, and offshore structures. Anglers targeting mahi-mahi often use trolling techniques with rigged ballyhoo, lures, or live bait, presenting their offerings near the surface where these fish are known to feed.

Another sought-after species in Fort Lauderdale's offshore waters is the sailfish, known for its speed, agility, and challenging fights. Sailfish can be found in deep waters offshore, particularly during the winter months when they migrate south along the Florida coast. Anglers targeting sailfish often use trolling techniques with live bait such as ballyhoo or threadfin herring, as well as artificial lures like dredge teasers or skirted trolling baits, presenting their offerings at varying depths and speeds to entice strikes from these majestic predators.

Furthermore, Fort Lauderdale offers opportunities to target a variety of other offshore species, including kingfish, wahoo, tuna, grouper, and snapper, among others.
