Fort Lauderdale Fishing; Silky SharksPosted on: April 5, 2009
George, his son and Dwayne escaped the cold Mid West weather and set sail here in sunny South Florida aboard the Lady Pamela II to go deep sea fishing. We started off the morning trolling for Kingfish and Tuna, but not much was around. After an hour of fishing and not catching, we switched to Plan B. We set up in 350 ft of water with a dead kingfish head on the bottom, one in the middle and another bait on the surface. It didn’t take long before the 200 bait got hit. As soon as the rod bent over, I pushed the boat ahead and we were hooked. George’s son jumped in the hot seat and he was ready to reel. He stayed in the game all the way through. He won the 20 minute battle with a big, brown Silky Shark. Around 11:00 AM the trolling picked up and the Blackfin Tuna and King Mackerels showed up to eat.
Awesome trip. Awesome catch.
