Bluefish Bonanza, Fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida!Posted on: April 11, 2009
Thursday afternoon, Marcele and his family joined the Lady Pamela II with Captain Paul at the helm and Captain Darin in the cockpit. Marcele and his family traveled all the way from Central America and wanted to have the time of their life while visiting South Florida. Man, did they pick a good day to head offshore fishing in Fort Lauderdale. Once the Lady Pamela II hit open water, Captain Paul noticed the biggest school of fish he’d ever seen. Captain Darin gathered up all the #9 wire and started bailing. They landed a total of 28 blue fish in 80 ft of water. Bluefish are rare to see in South Florida, especially 10 – 20 lb’ers. After two dozen Blue fish, it was time to move on. Trolling gear went out and the fun began. Our anglers landed 4 Blackfin Tuna and 3 Bonito.
Total Catch: 28 Bluefish + 4 Blackfin Tuna + 3 Bonito = 35 fish in the matter of four hours.
