Monster Mako Shark

This afternoon the Lady Pamela III had a nighttime tarpon fishing trip scheduled, but before it got dark the crew wanted to try some sharkfishing. A quick run straight offshore put the boat in 350 feet of water, and in 20 minutes they had hooked up a 5 foot sandbar shark. This sure wet our anglers’ appetite and they wanted to try to catch another shark, so mates Joe and Dom put big baits right back out. In less than 5 minutes they got a bite from a huge Mako shark. This monster started jumping all over the ocean, with the boat chasing the fish out to 800 feet of water. This was a huge catch; one of the biggest Makos that I have seen caught off Ft. Lauderdale.

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!
