Southeast Fishing Report – Mid DecemberPosted on: February 13, 2009
December 16th, 2008
This morning we had four people on a shared charter aboard the Lady Pamela II. The sailfish bite has been consistent, they are showing up in good numbers throughout South Florida. So we headed offshore trolling for sails and king mackerels, but there wasn’t much going on at all. We were one for two on the mahi – mahi. Plan B – drop on a wreck. We pulled out our 80 lb reel with 200 lb test and a 30 ft leader. We rigged a bluerunner to a circle hook, dropped er’ down and it all started here. We hooked a 45 lb golden amberjack, who put on one hell of a fight. We decided to relocate to a wreck a little more inshore. (It was a good move) We could’ve sworn we had a massive bullshark on, it was pulling some serious line. We fought this fish until IT gave in, we weren’t giving up. We landed a 60 lb’er the second time around. Today started off slow, but definitely picked up!
