Max Pacioretty Left Wing Montreal Canadiens

August 11, 2011

Max Pacioretty, left wing for the Montreal Canadiens, and his family fished with us today. We bought a dozen goggleyes in the morning, on the way out, and started the trip trolling the reef. The fishing action was nonstop for two plus hours. We caught 5 kingfish and 10 bonita. The bonita were swimming north in 100′ of water, in schools of thousands. It  was a sight to see for the whole trip. Maxs’ mother in-law was getting a little seasick so we tried some shark fishing for about an hour, with no bites.  Max said lets reel them up and go home because everyone was getting a little seasick.  As the last shark bait was being reeled in, I saw three huge mahi mahi swim by the boat. I ran up in the tower and started yelling at my mate Pauly to grab some spinning rods. As I was re-positioning the boat to find the fish Pauly was getting a goggleye out of the live well.  I pointed out  the fish to Pauly, he pitched the bait, and the fight was on with a 25 lb. mahi mahi.  I told Pauly there were more  fish there so he grabbed another spinner, and pitched a goggleye. It was another hookup and Rod Sergay , Max’s father-in-law boated a 30 plus lb’er. What  a great way to end a morning fishing trip in Fort Lauderdale! Come join us!

TESTIMONIALS

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
