Summertime Fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FloridaPosted on: June 15, 2009
Last week Verizon Wireless treated their employees to a week stay in sunny South Florida. They chartered twelve fishing boats in Fort Lauderdale and the Lady Pamela II set sail with the group from West by God Virginia bright and early from Lauderdale Marina. Fishing started out slow with a few Kingfish and Bonito and ended so-so. Our girls didn’t let the fishing get them down, they were just happy to be on a boat with beautiful weather in Fort Lauderdale!
Our afternoon trip consisted of six people looking to have a good time and go home with fresh dinner. The Kingfish bite picked up, they were hitin’ the deck left and right, some even went for seconds. They were having a ball but they really wanted to catch some Tuna. There was zero wind to fly the kites; helium was our hero today. We popped the kites and landed a 20 lb Mahi – Mahi and a 30 lb Blackfin Tuna right off the bat. Both great eating and fighting fish!
