Trolling on the Reef Red Hot
May 16, 2013
The Lady Pamela II sportfishing fleet brought in a mixed catch today. The Lady Pamela IV got into a mess of big kingfish on the outer reef, boating nine fish weighing between 20 and 35 lbs. They also caught a 7 ft. sailfish on the troll as they made a pass into about 180 feet of water while turning the boat south. Catching sails on the troll is exciting as these are generally pretty acrobatic when they hit the bait, and this one was no exception. There is nothing like a couple of sailfish tail-walks and jumps to get the adrenaline pumping!
The Lady Pamela III was out on the all day dolphin trip, which turned out to be a tuna trip. Our anglers boated 14 big blackfin tunas, ranging in size from 8 to 14 lbs today. We consider anything over 10 lbs to be a big blackfin off Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, so these guys really did well. Looks like beautiful weather is in store for this weekend, give Lady Pamela II sportfishing a call and let’s go catch’em up!
