30lb Mahi – Mahi Fishing in Ft Lauderdale, Florida!
April 16th, 2010
Fishing in Fort Lauderdale was great today. Jimmy and Sarah, from Jacksonville, set sail aboard the Lady Pamela II while Mike, from Delaware, joined the Lady Pamela I. Both boats left Lauderdale Marina at 8 AM with high hopes of hooking up with the last bit of the Sailfish Fort Lauderdale will see until the season kicks off again. Captain Paul and I ran the Lady Pamela II to 300 ft of water and popped the kites into the air while the Lady Pamela I trolled the reef. After an hour of waiting and wishing for the bite in 300 ft of water, I moved the boat around and the mid bait in 150 ft of water got a hit. Jimmy landed a Hammerhead Shark and a nice size Mahi for good measure aboard the Lady Pamela II. The Lady Pamela I came back to the dock with a 4 Mahi – Mahi, one 30 lb’er and 2 King Mackerel; looks like Mike will be eating good tonight!
