Wednesday Morning

Glassy flat this morning in Pompano. From what I hear, there are a couple sandbars that are picking up a knee high, somewhat longboardable wave. There is also a nice bump on the Gulfstream so it could get rideable at some point today but I doubt it’ll get much bigger than thigh high. If it comes in at all.

The winds are forecasted to pickup over the next few days giving us another round of windchop this weekend.

Alright broom lips. It’s Movember tonight at Laser Wolf. Let’s see whatcha got!

Monday Morning

Waist to chest sets coming in this morning in North Broward. The top row was Deerfield and the rest are from Pompano. Both waves were fun. Deerfield had the size and Pompano had the shape.

It kinda had that look like the wind could go offshore at any moment. if it does it could be a lot of fun. There was plenty of  south swell in the water.

Sunday Morning

Waist to occasional chest high wind chop this morning in Pompano. Winds and waves are fading so get while it lasts.

Fishing Report For Nov. 27, 2011

Fishing Report Palm Beach, Broward, Dade

Schools of drag screaming, hard hitting, and fun catching Spanish mackerel have been plentiful in South Florida. Anglers are catching mackerel, bluefish, mutton snappers, jacks, ladyfish and blue runners on silver spoons, live baitfish, Rapalas, and jigs when fishing from the jetties and piers and in the surf. Outside the swim buoys, along the beach, anglers fishing from boats and kayaks are doing well on the Spanish mackerel when trolling feathers, spoons and plugs. Then once the fish are located they have been casting plugs, spoons, live and dead baits in the area. If you find yourself getting cut off a lot then add a short piece of #3 copper wire to your rig.

Farther offshore, small kingfish are being caught in 100 feet of water. When the wind was out of the north and northeast, sailfish were in good numbers in depths from 100 feet out to 300 feet of water. Live large threadfin herring have been the top sailfish baits. Dolphin are available and most of the week they were in good numbers with many fish being caught in the green-blue waters in 100 to 300 feet of water.

Saturday Morning

I guess you could call it waist to chest high. It’s pretty messy out there today but there are a few waves giving it up. You couldn’t ask for a nicer beach day and the water color in Pompano is killer.

Looks like we’ll have waves thru tomorrow. Another cold is coming across South Florida Monday night with the possibility of waves Tuesday morning with offshore winds. Let’s hope it pans out! I’m over this wind chop!

Lot of good shots of the LBS crew during the afternoon Session.
