Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report Lady Pamela 2 May 19- 20Posted on: May 31, 2011
Today Lamar Scott and bob came fishing aboard the lady Pamela IV. We stared the trip out trolling using fresh Bonita strips and new sea witches with a 80 foot leader the fishing was great. The first few fish were 15-20 lb kingfish Scott and Lamar both caught the first two our next couple of bites where black fin tunas around the 5- 8 lb range in 200 feet of water is where we are catching the black fin tunas . Next all of a sudden a nice sailfish on the right long rigger I was in the cockpit and I told paul to put the boat in a turn well I feed the fish now I yell I’ve got him and it was jumping all over the ocean it makes one great trip if you catch Atlantic sailfish.
Today ran the boat and Paul was in the cockpit working hard as normal. We were on a big convention and the group we had only wanted to catch big sharks so we spent the whole trip using 200 lb test 130 penn reels and big kingfish head on the bottom four rods it took a few hours but once we got the bite the fight was on. It took a good 30 min and we had a rare Cuban night shark. The first one I had ever caught in the daytime it was a great trip.
