Pretty Darn Good Wahoo

June 1, 2013

Captain David and mate Jake made the most of improved fishing weather today, loading the Lady Pamela IV with a bunch of game fish. They started the morning working the reef in 100 feet of water, producing some nice kingfish. Captain David then caught word over the marine radio of a nice color change offshore Ft. Lauderdale so they pulled in the lines and went looking for the break in water color. The brownish-green coastal water turned to a deep purple out in 900 feet of water, associated with a slight current rip. As soonas the lines were back out a 20 lb wahoo slammed one of the baits. This was no monster wahoo but it put up a pretty darn good fight. Jake had just boated the wahoo when the reels started singing again. This time it was gaffer dolphin in the 10-15 lb range. Our anglers had more than a dozen hookups, putting five nice fish in the box.



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!
