Morning Fishing Trip 8-12

Ville aboard the Lady Pamela II

Ville hooked up!

My buddy Joe and his son are huge hockey fans, especially when it comes to the Florida Panthers. Joe, his son and the Panthers defenseman, Ville Koistinen, joined the Lady Pamela II for a deep sea fishing charter to have some fun. Fishing was a little slow in the beginning and after two hours of waiting, we finally got the bite. Ville was the first runner up and jumped in the chair to win the fight. Ville won the 30-minute battle against a 6-foot Game Shark. Nice catch!

6 ft Game Shark caught on the reef

Tight Lines!

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
