South Florida Fishing Report - 17 Dec 2017


fishing report florida

The general consensus is offshore fishing has been a bit slow this week
Will need a few more back-to-back cold fronts to bring in the Sailfish
That being said: They are starting to arrive and the double hook-ups are becoming more common. This last week has seen them working the top water
They've been spotted in 90-180 feet of water some in as little as 40ft of water - Chasing ballyhoo


There's been a couple big Mahi Mahi offshore but that's hit and miss
Going to need a couple days of NE wind to bring in the Pelagics
There’s been some big jacks, large predatory fish off the wrecks
Team drophook was out in flat calm conditions yesterday – didn’t produce much fish but we did get a really nice hook up on the change of tide in 250ft just off Hollywood.
Calm conditions this weekend probably won’t produce too many pelagics
With the calm conditions and easing of the gulfstream – wreck fishing should produce a good time and some results
We always have to remember that it’s about the process – we’re going fishing – not catching.


Drophook is a fishing community where anglers can log – share – and compete their catches. Privately log catches to see what is working, where you are catching and when. When you log a catch it automatically captures tide, water temperature , moon phases, etc.
Share socially - the feed is similar to Instagram but users can tag tackle to promote their sponsors and share what is working. Other users can then tap on the tagged tackle and purchase it directly through the app!
Compete in tournaments or create your own on whatever rules you like. We also have an in-app measuring tool that uses aspect ratio to measure fish from a photo. You can buy one of our drophook cards or use any standard card such as a bass pro membership card.
