Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing – BIG Bite Offshore
February 11th, 2011
Jessica and Mike from Massachusetts joined Mike, a Fort Lauderdale local, aboard the Lady Pamela for a deep sea fishing charter. We began trolling fresh Bonito strips to the south in 80 ft of water and moved into 130 ft of water. The pink/white and milar seawitches produced a few 5-10 lb King Mackerel fish in 90 ft of water. After we caught a couple of Kingfish, we put live Bonito fish on the troll in 85-115 ft of water. Within minutes, we were hooked and the bite was big. Too bad it didn’t hang on tight. Twenty minutes into Josh’s battle, the fish managed to pull the hook and release itself. Jessica’s bait got eaten shortly after our loss and she won the fight with a nice size Barracuda. Two more baits went in the water and before we knew it, a double header bite. Josh and Mike were back in the game. Mike’s fish pulled the hook as Josh’s fish continued to fight. Josh ended the day with a 25 lb Barracuda that put up one brutal fight.
