Lobster season is open!

Had a returning customer call us from NY and book a lobster trip for him and his wife. Couldnt have asked for a better couple to spend the day with. We met at one of our favorite dive locations to setup for the day and go over some lobster and spear techniques. After everyone was ready we paddled out for what turned out to be an action packed first dive! Lobster, Hogs, and Grouper all came home for dinner thanks to quick hands and good luck of two great divers. We headed in to grab a second tank and get back in the action.

Cobia Action!

44" Cobia!

Headed out early from Dania beach around 5:45 am with Rob, Chris and Hugo. We got out to the 200's and started exploring. The current was pretty slow early in the morning but picked up to around 2 knots by late morning. We were all catching bonito and Rob snagged a nice fat king. I think it was around 47 inches! Chris got a couple nice tuna out of the deal. One was pretty fat. Hugo was wrestling bonitos with me until we were about to head in. We had the bonito curse! The current was really pushing, so Hugo started his paddle in.

Wahoo!!! Dania to Pompano Drift

Today we were greeted with great conditions, calm surf and seas. Rob, Larry and I started our paddle out nice and early around 5:15 am. The plan today was to do a drift from Dania Beach to Pompano beach and go deep. As we trolled on the way out we noticed several slicks and weed lines at various depths. We made our first stop around 300 feet and started to drop the jigs in search of big tuna. No hookups so we headed deeper and came across our next weed line which was holding lots of bait and a few nice schools of Mahi. We didn't have live bait so the jigs were dropped.
