Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report March 2011
March 1st, 2011
Chris and his buddies joined the Lady Pamela II for a full day of fishing offshore Fort Lauderdale. It was flat calm offshore; with a SE wind blowing 5-10 mph. We left the dock at 8 AM with trolling gear in the water. For the first 6 hours of the fishing trip, we caught fish non-stop; Mahi-Mahi, Kingfish, Bonito, Blackfin Tuna. We ended the day with two nice size Barracudas caught at one of the many shipwrecks here in Fort Lauderdale.

Greg, Jeff, Amanda and two other friends joined the Lady Pamela IV for a fishing trip today. We left the dock at 8:10 AM and headed across the Intracoastal to pick up live goggle eyes. Once we had our bait covered, we were on our way and I headed south out of Port Everglades. It was blowing out of the NW. We flew the kites in 90 ft of water with 2 knot north current with bright blue water. Just as we were getting the second kite out, there were two Sailfish already in our spread. Captain Paul hooked the Sailfish that ate that short bait and handed it off to Greg and then began to work the second Sailfish. It didn’t take long for Captain Paul to hook the second Sailfish and hand it to Jeff. Jeff’s fish didn’t cooperate and fell off while Greg’s fish put up a battle. I was backing down in 8 ft swells for 20 minutes before we got Greg’s fish to the boat. After Greg’s catch, they called it a day and we were back at the dock by 9:30AM.
Pictures to come.
