Fishing Fort Lauderdale December 27 – 28

December 30, 2011

 December 27 and 28, 2011

Pamela Berreth, her husband, and son Hunter spent the last few days with us on the Lady Pamela II fishing boats. The first trip, on December 27th, was a 6 hour charter from 7am1pm. Pamela and her family are farmers from North Dakota and have marlin fished around the world, including places like Hawaii and Cabo San Lucas. Today’s particular trip in Fort Lauderdale was for theirson Hunter. It was a pretty productive day as we caught some kingfish, a few blackfin tuna, lost a huge wahoo and caught a nice size barracuda. We did not run across any billfish though, and that was Hunter’s goal.

Today, the 28th, we again had the pleasure of fishing with the Berreth family. We headed out around 11 am and went right to kite fishing. The past few days of kite fishing had produced a few sailfish and some hammerhead sharks, which is exactly what Hunter wanted to catch. Wetried our hardest to catch one of these gamefish and it was two hours into the trip before wefinally got a sailfish bite. Unfortunately, it was a quick fight as he jumped right off. Not to be deterred, we put out a fresh rack of baits and in no time got another bite. This time Hunterprevailed and he got his first sailfish! Way to go Hunter!

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!
