Does anybody know why they do this crap? Is this practice for the DNC? Why waste your time hacking into a F ing fishing website? I don't get it. :auto: :auto:

Long time since I posted here.

Went to the pier about a week before Irma.
Got lucky.
Caught some 4" runners on my sabiki.
Ran one out live under a float and another live off a drop rig.
Caught a 28" Cero mackerel off the floater and a 19" Mutton off the bottom.
Went home with a smile and more than ice in the cooler.

Anyone have an idea when pier will open back up?

Any idea if it sustained any damage?

Good to hear from you shos!

I was lucky on the small brs. mostly it was medium runners (12"). Otherwise there were pilchards here and there of varying sizes and occasionally some big thread herring. I even caught 3 8" little tunnys on my sabiki! I think people call them bonito here. I ran one out live under a float and it got swallowed by a huge bonito that looked to be over 30" which bit through my leader.

Any reports from the pier lately? Was wondering if any of the pomps from up north have started to show up yet. From a sneak peak at the cam, it looked like some big jacks were being caught today.

Well, went there today for a few hours.

No bait to be found anywhere around the pier.

Usual species were biting.

Saw some people catching a few macks, cubera, and jacks.

Water was flat, but cloudy.

Hit up Dania pier yesterday late morning for a few hours. "Meh" day. Saw a few mangrove and mutton snapper come up, otherwise was a baitfishless day and lots of reef fish stealing bait (Cowfish, Boxfish, Filefish, Puffers, etc.)

Noticed those reef fish last time I hit up dania as well.

They were all over the place, annoying as hell.

And still no bait to be had, it's that time of year though.

Been awhile since I have posted here, but wanted to give an update on the April Pompano run. In a nut shell, a pretty slow run this year. I managed to put a few in the freezer, but the pickings have been slim. I did get a couple of limits this month, and two this past weekend, but nothing like in years past. I started to use the goofy jig more this year than in the past, and did catch a few on them, but missed the really good jigging day 2 Sundays ago. I was told they really slammed them that day with more caught on jigs than with fleas. Looks to be poor water conditions until Monday or Tuesday this week, so might get in a couple more days before the season comes to a close with May starting. Tight lines!

Hit the pier Friday after work. NE wind blowing about 15 to 20kts. The guy next to me fishing fleas had nothing as well. Tried jigging for an hour or so, but nothing doing. I think most of the pomps have passed to the north already. Bait still has not showed up quite yet. A few micro baits, but that's about it. I did see a rather large poon cruising the shallows and a few snook starting to show up. Hopefully bait will arrive soon.

I don't think the mods even come online anymore.

Just look at how long that new registration warning has been on the main page.

It wouldn't surprise me if this forum goes p00f soon.

Without Tommy updating the software best bet is to have it off... if not it will be spam world in here.

But they did change the date.....

Been having the same luck north and south of the pier. Got on some pompanos a few weeks back and since then nothing.

Well, finally got the chance to hit up Dania last night.

And let me just say....w...t....f...

I've never seen so many......inexperienced.....fishermen on this pier before.

From idiots jamming out their trap music full blast on their boomboxes to people who constantly cast out onto the reef then wonder why their lines keep getting stuck.

<sigh>

Anyway, bait was everywhere. Saw the usual couple macks, runners, and snappers being caught. Did see one guy pull in a decently sized mutton from the T, but that's about it.

Couple young guys were using half a stingray from the T, I'd guess trying for some shark?

Going forward though, I don't think I'm ever hitting this pier up during a weekend again....ever. And I'll make sure to check the cam too.

Hey, Laz! You can always check out the Dania Beach Pier Cam and get an eyefull of what's going on, if anything. Summer is usually slow; lots of bait, needlefish and boo wunners. And googans! Don't forget the googans. It actually upsets me to see how poorly they pursue the graceful art of fishing. But, ya can't catch 'em if you don't wet a line, right? Tight lines, Bro!
Those other fish must be smart. We caught all the stupid ones!

I see on the news, made it here to Tampa news fox13, you can get the full experience and watch Jaws while floating in the ocean, or perhaps form the pier... I guess they are drumming up interest in the new Megladon movie coming out.

Might be a good night for beach shark fishing...

It's been a while since anyone has posted here, don't know if anyone even goes on the site anymore. Hit the pier this morning. Wind was perfect out of the southeast about 15kts or so. After fighting all the tangled messes all morning with the asian crew, I managed to actually get some good fishing in. Went home with four nice pomps and lost a couple more. One bruiser on the jig that took me for a ride and finally broke me off. :auto: :auto: All in all not a bad day.

Well, not sure if you heard it but the land base shark fisherman finally lost out this month on the shark fishing situation. Here in Broward County it is no longer legal

Spent the morning out on the T. Solid white Bait schools all morning long. Saw about six Macs come over the side from live bait sliding and sinker rig. Three muttons all 12 to 14 inches one of them was mine some short triggers.
Tried to warn some guy about keeping short muttons and triggerfish but he insisted on keeping them. As I was getting to the parking lot FWC showed up. Not sure if the guy got educated or not.
All in all I guess it was pretty busy for a Thursday probably 20 people in the whole time I was there.
