Fort Lauderdale Sailfish Fishing – September Sailfish Bite
September 18th, 2010
Sailfish Fishing in September
Today, Paul from Massachusetts came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II from 8 AM – 12 PM. Paul has caught 1,100 lb Bluefin Tuna but never a Sailfish, and today conditions were perfect to hook up with a Sailfish! Before we left the dock, Paul decided to buy live goggle eyes for live bait kite fishing. Once we reached 140 ft of water, I released the kites into the air with live goggle eyes dangling on the surface. The King Mackerel were first to show up and shortly after Paul caught his first Barracuda. Around 10 AM, a Sailfish was on the left long and Paul was in the fighting chair. This fish put on a great show for Paul, jumping all over the place within feet of the boat. We expertly tagged and released the 84″ Atlantic Sailfish caught offshore Fort Lauderdale.
