  • planers, Mako's, and FLL

    Like the title says, planes, trains, and auto..... Wait, planers, Mako's, and Fort Lauderdale. Been trying to get out as much as I can and doing planer trolling north of PE to my usual reef fishing spots just south of Hillsboro inlet. Every trip has produced something to eat. Yes, I eat barracuda. The anchorage area just north of PE has been rather productive. So I'm 5 for 6 catching something on a planer with 5 of those six trips being made this year. Now if only I could get FPL and the Bermuda Chubs to cooperate, I might just put together a great troll and anchor day but no luck so far. Pics are of my last three trips and thankfully I had at least one other person aboard as I gotta say solo planer fishing is a bit of work.

    Nice job. I usually head north out of PE too…. 221B with a Yamaha if you ever see me out there!

      Thanks slider. Reef fishing has been tough since the water temp went up. It's been hit or miss but mainly miss at my usual spots. About the only thing big and plentiful are the Chubs. And after trying one the last time I went out, I will be keeping a few as I thought they were quite tasty.

      Planer trolling has been even worse. After going 5 of 6 I think the next trips were 2 of 6 or something like that. I've read lots of online posts stating the same so maybe the fish are getting smarter!
      Won't stop me from trying every time I go out though. Will try and troll south in the future as a neighbor of mine caught a 60lb Wahoo around Hallandale a few months back.

      Will definitely be on the lookout for you and your rig. Lots of luck out there!
