Today Joe and I had a great sportfishing charter with Juan and his family. We started the morning out with some trolling on the reef edge off Ft. Lauderdale, and the kingfish were snapping. We caught 7 kings and a bonito before Juan got tired of this action and declared that he was ready to go catch the big ones.

Joe rigged up some shark baits as I moved the Lady Pamela II out into 400 feet of water. We did not even get our last bait out before BOOM! the topwater bait got slammed. The fish was a monster 11 foot great hammerhead shark that hit the rod rigged with 80 lb test. This was a big fish on pretty light tackle, but after almost two hours, the battle was over and the awesome fish was behind the boat. This was a stunning catch that was photographed and released. Wow!

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!
