Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing – BIG Wahoo fish!

Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing September 17th, 2010

Today, Emmit and his family came sport fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II with Richard and I. Fishing started extremely slow. We trolled seawitches and mullet strips for about an hour, and all we got was a 5lb Barracuda. After we expertly released the Barracuda fish, we got a big bite in 480 ft of water. Richard (the mate) backed the drag off on the reel as Jessica stepped up to the plate to fight the fish. Richard got the leader and shortly after, I saw the 30lb+ Wahoo fish. Jessica fought the fish all the way to the transom, I gaffed it and he went into the fish box. What a beautiful fish! We didn’t let the grass grow under our feet; trolling gear went right back in the water. A few more Barracudas ate along with some tasty Blackfin Tuna and a couple of Bonito fish.

Another great day of fishing in Fort Lauderdale!

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!
