It’s a great season right now for drift fishing in Ft Lauderdale. Spring is a great season to catch smoker kingfish, blackfin tuna and mahi-mahi along the reef. Bottom fishing for snapper and grouper is good this time of year as well. During our morning and afternoon drift trips, we’re catching a good amount of kingfish between 5-10 pounds. Every so often, we’ll catch a giant smoker king upwards of 30 pounds. Mahi-mahi, which are usually an offshore fish, will come in on the reef during the spring for some easy grazing on baitfish. On a few trips this week, in only 100′ of water, we’ve been suddenly jumped by a school of mahi-mahi. It’s good to see them showing up so early.
