For this fishing report for the Fort Lauderdale area, I’d like to talk a bit about size and kids. I am always asked “what’s the biggest fish I’ve caught”? Truth be told, I hope I haven’t caught my biggest yet and many of my customers have caught larger fish than I have. After all, how would people feel if I were catching their fish?
A recent trip with these 2 young boys had me reflecting on this very question. One great thing about kids is that they get excited no matter what size the fish is. They needed help in reeling the fish in, even complaining they couldn’t do it anymore to which Robert and Sean prompted them on. A hand was added to the handle to help land the fish they caught. They felt pride and excitement even though they needed help at their new BIGGEST fish! And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what keeps me coming back to work each day.
So… what’s YOUR biggest fish? It doesn’t really matter if you’re young or old. Size is relative to your size and what you’ve caught in the past. Maybe that’s why kids are so easy to please.
As for what we’ve been catching? Small Blackfin Tuna with some really nice, big ones have been biting. Kingfish on the reef with Bonitos mixed in and each day we hope for Dolphin, but they have been coming and going with no regular schedule. Fishing for sharks has slowed but if you reel your fish in too slowly, you stand a chance to lose it to a shark so they are still around.
The main thing is we’re catching fish and having fun doing it. And that’s all for now for the Fort Lauderdale area and this fishing report.
