Vinnie Johnson NBA - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Vinnie Johnson NBA

May 2, 2013

This morning we were honored to have Vinnie Johnson and friend Mark out for a second great day of fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II. Vinnie is a retired Detroit Pistons basketball player, having played on their 1989 and 1990 NBA championship teams. He is also the founder and chairman of the Piston Group, a Michigan-based auto supply company.

Blackfin Tunas

During two days of fishing these guys caught a little bit of everything that Fort Lauderdale fishing had to offer, including hammerhead sharks, blackfin tunas, and a few mahi-mahi. They even hooked into a sailfish that unfortunately pulled the hook right next to the boat. Thanks for joining us guys, we appreciate your business.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
