Sailfish, King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna & a 15 ft Hammerhead Shark while Fishing in Ft. LauderdalePosted on: April 11, 2010
April 10th, 2010
Today I ran the Lady Pamela with Adam, Jay, JT and their 3 other buddies from Nashville. Captain Paul ran the Lady Pamela II for an eight-hour fishing trip with Kate and Scott who fish with us once a year. My day started off by loading up with live goggle eyes and heading out to 350 ft of water to suspend the kites with live bait dancing on the surface. The bite was on. We went 1 for 3 on jumping Sailfish and saw the biggest Great Gray Hammerhead I’ve ever seen swim through our spread, a 15 footer. We tried our hardest to get him to eat and but he just wasn’t interested. I wish he stuck around long enough for me to get a picture!
Kate and Scott were non-stop on the Lady Pamela II catching 4 King Mackerel, 3 Blackfin Tuna and a 10 ft Hammerhead Shark. Kate kicked butt in the chair but let Scott finish the fight.
Fishing was fantastic today; let’s see what tomorrow brings us!
