Mutton Snapper on the Shipwreck in Fort LauderdalePosted on: October 12, 2009
Rick, John and his buddies from New York joined the Lady Pamela II fleet for a fishing excursion out of beautiful Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Rick and his gang were pretty lucky for their first time offshore. We started off catching tons of live bluerunners and speedos. Fresh strips on the planners and ballyhoo out of the rigger caught the eye of a 10 lb King Mackerel. A 15 lb’er followed within minutes. We caught a total of four Kings before we hit the wreck. On our first drop with a live speedo we got an instant bite. By the time Rick got situated in the chair, we pulled the hook and hoped the fish was still down there. On our second drop we hooked him. A monster Mutton Snapper ate just a few miles off the coast of Fort Lauderdale.
