Fort Lauderdale Fishing LogPosted on: February 13, 2009
December 16th, 2008
Brad and Bill joined us this morning all the way from Chicago and Michigan aboard the Lady Pamela II to set sail offshore Fort Lauderdale. It was a beautiful day to go deep sea fishing in South Florida. We headed out of Port Everglades with trolling gear ready to go. The kingfish bite was going off, they were everywhere and anywhere. We caught a total of 15 and kept 8 real nice ones, along with a handful of bonitos mixed in with the bunch. Brad and Bill had heard alot about the artifical reefs and ship wrecks Fort Lauderdale houses, so we relocated. It was a good move. We made a drop with one of our live bonito’s we’d caught earlier and as soon as the bait hit their “front door”, the rod started screamin’! Brad had his hands full fighting a huge amberjack. Round two – we put TWO live bonito’s out on the top and got a bite immidiately. It was Bill’s turn to get in the chair, and he did. He landed a barracuda, with some mean teeth.
