LADY PAMELA I
Today the Lady Pamela 1 had a full day charter for daytime swordfishing. We left the dock at 7 am in the morning and were going to return at 4 p, a long day on the water, but we wanted to catch a big swordfish to bring back and hang at the dock for Jim. We rigged a few Bonita strips and squids on the 15 mile run out, when we got to the sword grounds we had the reel ready to go so we dropped in 1800 feet of water off the double 0 mark, our first drop. It didn’t take 20 minutes and we had a bite but we lost him. So we made three more drops. While we had our sword bait on the bottom a whole school of Mahi- mahi swam up to the boat, 80 plus fish. In one hour we caught 45 Mahi -mahi great day for our customers, one fish after another on lite spinning rods but only 20 keepers the rest were to short to keep so we let them go. It was a long day, no swordfish but lots of Mahi.
LADY PAMELA IV
On the Lady Pamela IV we had two half day charters. In the morning we caught lots of kingfish and Bonitas on the troll and some small black fin tunas. In the afternoon trip we had Marcus from Venezuela and his family. We started the trip out trolling and caught five nice size kingfish up to 15 lbs. and four Bonitas. Then all of a sudden one of the planer rods bent over an stared ripping drag off the reel faster than normal and a nice sailfish started dancing all over the ocean. Leo cleared all the lines fast so Paul could start backing down the boat to chase the sailfish. It was a good 15 minutes before landing the sailfish. It was six foot in length and we tagged the billfish then let him swim away so we can catch him another day. Great job to Marcus from Venezuela. Marcus owns his own charter boat in Venezuela but never catches sailfish but he told me they catch a lot of big tiger sharks there.
LADY PAMELA III
Adam and Joe had the all-day dolphin Thursday trip today. Joe said it was definitely an exhilarating all-day of catching dolphin today. They found weed lines from 650 foot of water all the way out to 980 feet and Joe said that he couldn’t even get two lines out for most of the trip. They caught 60 Mahi-mahi on the 8 hour trip today and only got to bring home 12 Mahi- mahi the other dolphin where too short to keep. But it was great that there were 15 people and all 15 people got to catch 4 fish each that’s what makes a good trip.
