Fort Lauderdale Sailfish Fishing – SOLID bite!

January 17, 2011

January 14th, 2010

Today, David from Wyoming and Kenneth from Nebraska came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV with Captain Paul and myself. We stopped for live goggle eyes before our 6-hour adventure offshore began. I was in the tower riding the edge when I saw the first Sailfish of the day. I slowed the boat down and we put the kites up immediately. Kenneth hooked Sailfish #1 and won the battle in the fighting chair. The fish wasn’t cooperating easily, but we did manage to get great pictures. David was ready for round two; it was his turn to land a Sailfish. We relocated and set up the kites off the bow of an anchored ship. The bite was nearly instant. Captain Paul cleared the cockpit as David geared up. David’s Sailfish put up a 25-minute fight and we were able to tag and release. We finished off the fishing trip catching two Bonito fish on the troll. Live bait was the way to go today.

Pictures to come.

Tight Lines!

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
