Lady Pamela 2 Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters
July 1, 2011
The Ellison family from Texas came out fishing today with Josh and I for a full day charter. We started out catching a few live baits at a ship that was anchored for a few weeks in 100 feet of water. The live baits that we caught where speedos and blue runners. After getting the live bait we started trolling to the north with four top baits out and two deep planers out. We caught a few kingfish and bonitas. The trolling was nonstop and we ended up catching 10 bonitas an 4 kingfish. Then all of a sudden I hooked an Atlantic Sailfish off the bridge, on the high line. Mr. Ellison’s son got into the chair, and it took about 20 min before we landed the 83” sailfish. We tagged the fish real quick and released it. Then we stared shark fishing in 350 feet of water with three shark baits. It took one hour before I got the bite and I gunned the boat ahead to set the hook. We got Mr. Ellison into the fighting chair. It ended up being a 9 foot hammer head shark. After landing the hammer head we went wreck fishing with the live baits we caught earlier during the trip. I went to five different ship wrecks from 160 feet to 245 feet and we caught one huge Almaco jack that fell off as we were bringing it in the boat. It was a long day out on the water but we caught fish the whole trip.
