New England Patriot Fan's go home with 20lb DOLPHIN, Fishing in Fort Lauderdale aboard the Lady Pamela IIPosted on: December 10, 2009
Mike and his wife Katie brought their whole gang to Fort Lauderdale for the Miami – Patriots game. For the last three years, Mike and Katie have fished the Lady Pamela fleet and man, do they have good luck. The first year they fished aboard the Lady Pamela II, Mike landed a double header Sail. Last year we headed offshore with our hard core Patriot fans and there wasn’t a fish in site for the first four hours but the last two hours of fishing made up for it, big time; seven for seven on the Sailfish bite. Talk about excitement! This year we headed out of Lauderdale Marina with beautiful weather and hoped they brought their luck down from Massachusets. Trolling was productive. The King Mackerel were solid and their son was having a ball. Our anglers wanted to see if they could get their hands on another Fort Lauderdale Sailfish so the kites went up with live goggle eyes on the surface. Within 20 minutes of live bait kite fishing, Katie landed a beefy 20 lb Dolphin fish (Mahi Mahi).
After the Mahi, Mike said “Captain David, just one Sailfish for my son, you always find them.” Immediately after Mike said the word Sailfish, we hooked a 6 ½ footer on the kite.
See you guys next year!
