Fishing Fort Lauderdale October – 30lb WahooPosted on: October 18, 2009
This afternoon, the Lady Pamela II set sail with two different groups of people who had never been deep sea fishing offshore. Skip, an avid trout fisherman, had never hooked a saltwater fish in his life, nor had John and his family who traveled from Denmark. The water looked great today; a beautiful blue edge, a steady current, but no fish. The further south we trolled the better the bite got. Three big King Mackerel ate along with two nice size Barracuda. Skip was in awe when he got up close and personal with the Barracuda and its mean set of teeth. After our Kings and Cudas, we got a killer bite from a monster fish. John was battling with this fish for a while before Paul got a hold of the leader and we finally got the 30 lb Wahoo in the boat. The slim, streamlined fish showed John who’s boss in Fort Lauderdale. The Wahoo is one of the fastest fish South Florida has to offer and one of the tastiest fish in my book.
