What a great day for sailfishin

The seas have been relatively calm this weekend, but today we had another couple of kids get seasick on the Pamela. We had Scott and his family from NY on board, and at 9:00 am we left the dock and started trolling. We had just caught one kingfish when the girls started to get seasick so we ran in and dropped them off at the pier and ran back out. There was an awesome edge in 70 feet of water that was a sharp blue/green. It looked very good for sailfishing so we sat there for a brief 15 minutes before a sailfish popped up on the right short line. The fish didn’t eat, but swam to the left short and we hooked him up. Of course wouldn’t you know it, while fighting this sailfish a sailboat race came right through our fishing zone! We’re fighting this sailfish and there are sailboats off our bow and stern almost running our fish over! To add to the drama, while all this mayhem is going on, another sailfish swam up to the boat, so I pitched another bait to it. He took the pitch and all of a sudden we had a double header. We got both fish to the boat, despite the sailboats. What a great day for sailfishing!

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!
