13 Sails And A Blue Marlin Lady Pamela 2
February 19, 2013
The billfish bite was spectacular today, with both the Lady Pamela II and Lady Pamela IV racking up big release numbers. The Lady Pamela II caught and released 13 sailfish and a blue marlin, while the Lady Pamela IV had a total of 8 sailfish releases. Both boats were fishing multiple lines suspended from kites, using live goggleyes for bait.
It was a bit of a surprise to hook up the blue marlin, as not that many are caught in the Ft. Lauderdale area these days. Most billfishermen are focusing on sailfish which are frequently found in 180-220 feet of water, while marlins tend to be found further offshore. Lady Pamela II sportfishing has been lucky with the marlin though, landing a 400 lb’er about this same time last year.

Hunter, Pamela, and Jim escaped the freezing cold of North Dakota for a day of fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II. It was a fine day of hot fishing action for our guests from the north as they landed a 35 lb gag grouper and a nice red grouper. They also bent the rods on a few big kingfish that were trolled up on the outer reef edge. The blackfin tunas were around as well, with a couple of nice-sized fish landed and quickly iced for fresh sashimi back at the dock.
