Fort Lauderdale Offshore SmorgasbordPosted on: February 20, 2009
On Tuesday afternoon, the Lady Pamela II set sail with three people on a shared charter. We headed out the Inlet trolling with planner boards and fresh bonito strips in search of Kingfish. When we hit 150 ft of water the Kings were showing up in good numbers along with a few Blackfin Tunas ranging anywhere from 8 lb -25 lb. There was word around town that the Mahi – Mahi were solid offshore, and man were they. We landed 6 nice size dolphin for our anglers to take home for fresh dinner. Towards the last hour of our trip, conditions were looking good to fly the kites. Within minutes of the live bait being suspended from the kites, we hooked a 5 foot sailfish. It took our anglers 30 minutes to fight the flopper. Awesome day of fishing out there!
Sea ya on the water…
