Day To Remember

November 13, 2011

Today was a special day for me, as I got to take my dad Peter out fishing. We don’t get to do that very often because we both always seem to be “working “on boats, instead of enjoying them. Not today though, as we took a day off and went fishing on our 36 foot Invincible center console boat. The night before, we had informed a few of our friends about our plans, and Bill, Russell, John, and Darin quickly agreed to round out our crew. That night I also put together two dozen live bait leaders, snelling VMC 5/0 circle hooks onto 16 foot sections of 30 lb Sufix® Invisiline™ fluorocarbon leader.

In the morning, we picked up six dozen goggleyes from T & T live bait and ran north 30 miles to just offshore Boynton Beach inlet. We put up the kites, and as soon as we got the baits in we hooked up a double header sailfish, landing one out of the two fish. By 10:00 a.m. we had released another four sails and lost one. The outgoing tide had the current running at the inlet by this time so we reset the kites right in front. It didn’t take long before we hooked another sail, then another. We now had released six sails and lost two. Every time we set back up in front of the inlet we got a bite, so we kept jumping and catching sailfish. We ended the day with 10 for 12 on the sails. We also caught 10 nice mahi-mahi up to 20 lbs, a couple of blackfin tunas, a king mackerel, two silky sharks, and a barracuda. We ended up catching over 30 fish. Not too bad!

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!
