Fishing Fort Lauderdale Family Style
October 24, 2013
Today we enjoyed the company of Rodney and his friends from Alabama aboard the Lady Pamela II. This was an afternoon charter, so from 1 to 5 pm we were able to troll around a little bit and catch some kingfish. We also put out the kites trying to catch a sailfish but didn’t get any bites. We did catch about a 6 foot Silky shark though, and as the Alabama crew were reeling him in a massive tiger shark came and took a big bite out of it! JJ quickly grabbed a 130 lb rod and put a three hook shark rig back out. We were hoping to get another bite and sure enough the big tiger shark came up nad took another bite! Unfortunately he didn’t grab any of the hooks, and swam off into the deep.
The morning driftfishing trips aboard the Lady Pamela III over the past few days have down south of Port Everglades inlet. We have been fishing anywhere from 60 to 80 feet of water and catching lots of flag yellowtail snappers. We have been averaging about 15 tails per trip along with a few king mackerel. We are always catching triggerfish and grunts.
