New Years Eve

Knee to waist high with some bigger sets in North Broward. It was picking up and getting better when I left. Nice way to bring in the New Year!!!


Little micro trace swell showing early this morning. It looks like it’ll get longboardable in a couple of hours. Maybe shortboardable by noon but it looks like the winds will clock around by then.

PM photo Update:  Pretty much nailed it with my earlier prediction.

A little bit of a struggle but there are some good ones for the longboard out there this morning.

Little waves starting to show.


Thigh high sets in north broward


Flat. There is a bump on the Gulfstream and a little trace surging on the beach. You never know, It might just get longboardable at low tide.
Even if today doesn’t work out, this weekend looks good. Here’s the Surfing Weatherman’s forecast.

PM update: It picked up to knee to waist high. Fun for the longboard.


Knee to waist high South wind swell this morning in North Broward. The winds are teetering offshore making for some fun sections. Not sure how much longer it’s going to last so you might want to check it soon.

Might be some waves down here tomorrow  morning.

FISHING REPORT Dec. 26, 2012

Tarpon have been active along the beaches from Port Everglades south to Government Cut. Large live shrimp have been the top tarpon baits. Large jack crevalles have been eating live mullet on the outgoing tides at the mouth of the inlets. With snook season closed there have been few snook reports. Pier fishermen working the Commercial Pier during the daytime have been doing well on Spanish mackerel, lesser amberjacks and mutton snappers. At night plenty of bluerunners and bluefish are being caught. Offshore anglers have had mixed results with some anglers catching a few kingfish and small blackfin tuna outside the outer reef. A few sailfish are being released everyday but so far no big numbers. Live threadfin herring have been the top baits for the kings, tunas and sailfish. Anglers working the wrecks are catching gag groupers to 51 pounds on the bottom and dolphins to 38 pounds. Best action has come on days with east winds. Swordfish are being caught during day trips out in 2000 feet of water. Nighttime bottom fishing has produced red and gag grouper, mutton and mangrove snappers. Low tide at Government Cut Friday night will be at 9:19.

 Biscayne Bay

This past week there have been schools of threadfin herring, small groups of pilchards and mullet of all different sizes in North Bay. Bluefish, large and small jacks and a few Spanish mackerel have been feeding on these baitfish schools. Lots of small to medium size seatrout have been eating live baits.
