Fort Lauderdale Sailfish Fishing; Double Header Sailfish Bite!
November 5th, 2010
Today I ran the Lady Pamela III with 13 guys vacationing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a Bachelor party (these trips are always fun). I explained live bait kite fishing to the guys and they decided to purchase a dozen goggle eyes before heading offshore. Sailfish are migrating from the north to the south, so as soon as we reached open water, I hung a left and headed north to the steeple. There was no edge or blue water; I positioned the boat in 180 ft of dirty green water. We watched and waited for an hour before hooking a double header Sailfish bite. The guys fought both fish for a while before we were able to bring them in the boat for pictures. After a few group shots, we expertly released both Sailfish back into the blue for a future fight in Fort Lauderdale.
