Fishing Fort Lauderdale Lady Pamela 2 March 27
March 27, 2011
The seas were flat and calm as we left Ft. Lauderdale this morning with a full boat. For the first few hours we trolled using sea witches and fresh-cut bonito strips. A nice 8-lb. blackfin tuna and some kings of about 5-10 lbs. were caught before we moved on. Using a live blue runner for bait we dropped on a wreck inabout 100 feet and hooked up an abaco jack. The weather picked up in the afternoon with 20-kt. winds and seas of 4-feet so we called it a day.

The fisherman sharing our boat this morning also shared the thrill of catching a 6 1/2 foot sailfish! We were on the troll using a pink and white sea witch and fresh-cut bonito strips when the fish hit. After a 25-30 minute fight the fish was close enough to the boat to attach a tag and safely release it, The rain came and went and we ended up catching 4 kings on planers in about 60-100 feet of water.
The afternoon was sunny again as we left the dock with Sean from Illinois. A couple of nice kings of about 8-10 lbs. were caught trolling. The conditions were good for kite fishing and up they went. We were in 150 feet of water right out from Port Everglades using kingfish as bait and a Penn International 130 reel. Our reward was a magnificent 8-foot Great Hammerhead shark! Another fantastic day fishing out of Ft. Lauderdale.
