Fort Lauderdale Sportfishing Provides Solid Action on the TrollPosted on: October 26, 2009
Today the Suendren and Hayes family joined the Lady Pamela II for a first time deep sea fishing trip. Both groups sure did pick the right place at the right time! Fishing in Fort Lauderdale from now until spring is solid action. We left Lauderdale Marina with our gang and trolling the reef was first on the list. A bonito went in the live well within minutes for later use in the kite. Bigger planners went in the water at 200 ft and we crossed our fingers for a nice size Mahi or Kingfish. We trolled around a large freight ship that has been anchored offshore for a week and landed a 20 lb Kingfish, a nice size Spanish Mackerel and a beefy Mahi. In the mist of all this, we spotted 8 Sailfish free jumping so the kites went up and the live bait dangled on the surface. We never got a shot at the Ballerina of the Sea but we did head back to the dock with fresh dinner for our anglers.
