Fishing in Fort Lauderdale with Michael and his family
January 7th, 2010
Michael and his family joined the Lady Pamela IV for a deep sea fishing adventure while visiting Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Once we hit open water, we were catching King Mackerel in 140 ft of water. We caught a handful of Kingfish and went on our way to 220 ft of water. The kites went into the air with live goggle eyes as three baits went underneath the water. It wasn’t long before we had a window shopper. The Sailfish swam into our spread, took a look at our bait and swam away. Not even 25 minutes later and one of our bottom baits got a hit. I pushed the boat ahead as Kevin set the hook and it was on – game time. Michael was strapped in and ready to catch this monster fish. Michael fought his huge Hammerhead Shark all the way to the boat. The fish was just shy of 8 ft long.
