Ft Lauderdale Fishing, Quadruple Header = 2 Sailfish, Hammerhead Shark, Silky Shark!
April 13th, 2010
Today we had five on a shared fishing charter, a group of three and a couple. We headed out the inlet and conditions were perfect for live bait kite fishing. In 300 ft of water, there was a rippin’ north current on the edge. Rusty, our new mate, assisted Mike in the cockpit, flying the kites and getting the Shark baits positioned down deep. We waited patiently and it was all worth it in the end. After an hour of soaking our baits, two Sailfish jumped on our live bait, a Hammerhead Shark ate and then a Silky Shark swam in and took a bite, ALL at ONCE! It was the craziest thing I have ever seen. One of the Sailfish managed to release itself but Mike, Rusty and our anglers managed to catch the remaining three fish. The Sailfish and both Game Sharks were released back into the blue and we went on our way with trolling gear in the water and many smiles. We ended the day catching 10 King Mackerel and 4 Blackfin Tuna.
Talk about a nail biter!
