Ft Lauderdale offshore Dolphin BitePosted on: February 13, 2009
December 26th, 2008
Steve and his twin sons traveled from New Jersey to spend the Holiday’s right here in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Steve had high hopes on landing a sailfish and his sons had never caught a saltwater fish in their life. They chose the perfect place to fulfill their dreams, plus you can’t beat our beautiful weather this time of year in South Florida. We headed out aboard the Lady Pamela II with live goggleeyes in the well and the kites ready to go. We popped the kites, waited for a bite but there wasn’t a sailfish around. Right before we decided to pull the kites in, we hooked a sea turtle (I have never hooked a sea turtle in my life). We released him at the boat and he swam away in good shape. Then pretty much out of no where, a school of mahi – mahi surrounded the boat and we had a double header on. Two mahi – mahi for two twins boys! It was perfect. The boys had a great time reeling in their first saltwater fish ever while fishing offshore Ft Lauderdale.
