March of the Fish! Lady Pamela II's Ft Lauderdale Fishing Catch of the WeekPosted on: March 7, 2009
This week, deep sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale has been action packed. From giant Kingfish on the troll to a few Sailfish battles a day, the Lady Pamela II went back to Shallow Harbor happy campers every trip. The Blackfin Tuna have been solid in 200 – 300 ft of blue water. Green milar, pink/white seawitches and fresh bonito strips is the trick to landing those 10 lb’ers. On Tuesday morning, we made our last stop in the Inlet for the “grand slam”. Barracuda’s are known to be stealth in the cut, we ended up getting two monsters within 20 minutes. The Mahi – Mahi have been showing up in good numbers as well. Wednesday afternoon we couldn’t get away from the dolphin. As soon as we popped the kites with live goggs, WHAM, we had a double header on and suspense erupted in the pit. Our anglers landed one big, beautiful fish and had a great time fighting it. The Kingfish have finally migrated south to our side of town, catching anywhere from 5-10 nice ones per trip. Yesterday, we got a hold of a 30 lb King Mackerel on the troll, it was a beefer. With the wind lingering here in Fort Lauderdale, kite fishing has been productive a few miles offshore. The Sailfish bite has been on target, we’ve seen and fought a handful of floppers this week.
