Fort Lauderdale Fishing is Phenominal!
July 16th, 2010
Today was a great day on the water; my best friend Matt filled in and fished with me aboard the Lady Pamela II for both our morning and afternoon trip. We go way back, from fishing in the New River here in Downtown Fort Lauderdale when we were little guys. Matt is a Miami Fire Fighter who tries to fill in fishing as much as he can. We had a few young kids on the boat today so I decided to head out Port Everglades, get them familiar with the tackle, and catch some bait at the same time. With our baitfish in the well, we trolled to the south where fishing was very slow. The current was MIA and so were the fish, besides for one straggler King Mackerel. We made a move 18 miles away and with a big bonito bait we dropped it down in 50 ft of water and got the bite immediately. Jeff jumped into the fighting chair with no hesitation and put his game face on. He won the fight against a monster Barracuda. Our afternoon trip ended up being very similar, slow fishing to start then a whopper fish to end the trip.
The Lady Pamela III had a great afternoon trip. Repeat customers of ours, Dustin and Patrick went home very happy as always. They caught a 60lb Tarpon and a big Barracuda while fishing in Fort Lauderdale.
