Bonitos Biting

Today Justin and I had a full day on the Lady Pamela II. The first hour of the trip we were busy catching 20 bonitos, but we had a few little kids on the boat that got seasick so we headed back in to drop them off. The bonitos were still biting when we got back out to the reef edge and we also added a few blackfin tunas to the catch. We even missed a sailfish that popped a bait as we made a turn in 70 feet of water. We finished out the day with some kite fishing along on a sick current edge in 180 feet of water. We were hoping for another sailfish, but our anglers ended up with hammerhead shark on 30 lb test instead. Now that was a fight!


Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
