Fort Lauderdale, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Fort Lauderdale Beach

It's not everyday we see a boat go up in flames, but it is extremely unfortunate when accdidents like this happen.  While we take extreme precautions to avoid such disasters, you just never know when this could happen to you, so it is best to be prepared.

Today, we were trolling when we saw the "New Lattitude" with an unsual amount of black smoke.  It wasn't long before the entire boat was up in flames.

We cut off our fish and lines to quickly get to the crew and offer assistance.  We were lucky to get there in time and get them on our boat.  No one was injured.

Unfortunatley the boat is now sitting on the bottom and salvage companies are doing their best to avoid the spread of fuel.
