Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II Fleet; Mahi – Mahi & 6 Cobia fish!
March 12th, 2011
Travis, Mike, John and a few others came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV early this morning. The past few days of fishing have been great, with a very nice edge in 750 ft of water. I explained what was happening offshore and the gang decided to buy a dozen goggle eyes for live bait kite fishing. Within 30 minutes of fishing offshore, we caught a 10 lb Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) on the kite bait. New bait went out and another Mahi-Mahi ate. Two hours before the trip was over, we hooked a double header Mahi-Mahi. After 15 minutes, Travis’ Dolphin was in the fish box while Mike’s Mahi-Mahi was still fighting. Fourty-five minutes later, Mike’s 35 lb Dolphin was gaffed and inside of the cockpit. It wasn’t long before the feisty Dolphin jumped OUT of the cockpit and back into the blue. On the way back inshore I was riding in the tower and spotted a Leather Back Turtle with a school of Cobia. JACKPOT! I quickly spun the boat around and we pitched live goggle eyes into the crowd. A double header was on the line in no time. We called it a day with 6 chunky Cobia.
Fishing was fantastic in Fort Lauderdale today!
Thanks for the great time! Please send us the pictures as soon as you can. We’ll be in touch regarding shipping the cobia and dolphin.
