Fishing Fort Lauderdale Lady Pamela 2
December 8, 2011
Today was a fun day for me as I ran the cockpit while my mate Drew ran the boat during a full day charter. We ran north 20 miles and got to our fishing spot right at about 8:15 a.m. We had just gotten our first two baits on the kites when our client Mark hooked a sailfish! I quickly grabbed a spinning rod and bait from the well and pitched it towards a second fish for another quick hookup. It seemed like we released both fish within two minutes! I reeled in the second kite bait and we ran a mile south to get ahead of the moving fish. We set six kite baits back out and Mark hooked another saifish, releasing it in 5 minutes. A few mahi-mahi were boated during the next hour, then we got another sailfish bite. All of the fish we were catching were moving between 130 – 150 feet of water, and there was about a ½ knot of north current. We ended up catching 6 out of 8 sailfish, 5 mahi-mahi and a silky shark. Not a bad day of fishing, and we were back at the dock by 2:00 pm!
