Miami Dolphin's QB Chad Henne lands 88" Sailfish aboard the Lady Pamela II in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

June 17, 2009

Miami Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne came deep sea fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II this afternoon for a fun family outing in sunny South Florida. On the way out the Intracoastal we stopped at the marina and filled the well with live bait. Fishing started off slow this morning, not much was around. We popped the kites at the edge with live goggs, hoping to attract something. After an hour of waiting and wishing, a sailfish ate but it immidiately pulled the hook. We hung in there for a little bit longer and Henne fought an 88 incher. Nice catch!

Tight Lines!

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!
