Today was the big corporate charter that we have every year with a local insurance company here in sunny Fort Lauderdale. We had 10 boats booked from 8-2 p.m. It was like our own mini-tournament! My buddy David, the event organizer, fished on the Lady Pamela IV with mate Pauli and I. I should note that at the dinner party the night before, David stood up and said if no one catches a fish he would pay $400.00, at which time he turned around to me a said he would be talking it from my end! I was praying that everybody was catching fish, and they were. Most of the boats started trolling right off the bat, with the bonitas and king mackerals demolishing the baits. On the Lady Pamela IV we trolled the entire morning trip on the reef, then went Mahi Mahi hunting out in 800 feet of water. We had a sailfish on the right long rigger bait for a few shots and then he swam to the center rigger bait and Pauli missed him. Oh well, that’s fishing! On the Lady Pamela, Darrin took his party shark fishing after after wearing them out on kingfish and bonitas. They waited for 45 minutes before hooking and releasing a 7 foot hammerhead shark. Another one of the boats caught a beautiful trophy sailfish. The pictures we got should be in a magazine. Long story short, all ten boats each caught 10 fish plus. The fish are biting: don’t miss out on some Fort Lauderdale fishing!

The Lady Pamela III, Fort Lauderdale nicest drift fishing boat, had 14 people on board the 7-11 p.m. trip. On these night trips we anchor up and chum for snappers, groupers, kingfish, and what ever else bites. This night, the weather conditions where perfect and the fish where biting! We ended up catching 69 keeper snapper, mostly the best eating yellowtails and mangroves. Most amazing was that one person even reeled in a 3lb. spiny lobster! Lke I said, everything was biting that night! Hook em’ up!
