Fresh Blackfin Tuna, Tag & Release make for a great day in Fort Lauderdale!
April 11th, 2010
This morning, Sean joined Rusty, our new mate, Mike and I aboard the Lady Pamela II for a 4-hour fishing charter. We headed out the inlet and live bait was the first thing on our to do list. The buoy right out front provided us with Rainbow Runners, Blue Runners and Speedos for later use. After we loaded up our live well, I ran the Lady Pamela II to 300 ft of water where the out going current and the Gulfstream meet. Mike and Rusty suspended two SFE fishing kites rigged with four live goggle eyes and dropped down three big Kingfish heads on the 130 Internationals. We drifted for only 10 minutes before I yelled, “Shark on the long kite!” Sean fought the 5 ft Hammerhead Shark for 20 minutes before we got him in the boat for a few pictures. Shortly after, we expertly tagged and released him for a future fight and began to troll west. Two Blackfin Tuna ate and Sean reeled in two King Mackerel to top off the day. All three of us had a great time fishing with Sean today; he has a great story to go home with, a sore arm and pictures to prove it.
