Wreck Fishing in 180 ft of water offshore Ft LauderdalePosted on: June 12, 2009
This afternoon Bryan and his whole family joined Adam and I aboard the Frequent Flyer II in hopes of seeing a Sailfish. The weather was perfect for their young daughter and new born baby boy. Seas were flatter than a pancake and the Kings and Bonitos were out and about. It was one after another hitin’ the deck, they were all having a ball. Bryan was interested in using live bait, so to the wreck it was. We dropped live bait on the first wreck and missed a few nice bites. With no luck there, we went to a deeper wreck in 180 ft and got hooked up immediately. Bryan and his wife played pass off with this huge Barracuda until they wore him out. When the Barracuda came in range of the boat, Adam got a good hold on him and we got some nice family pictures. Bryan and his wife still wanted to land a Sailfish, so we released the Barracuda, pulled live speedos on the surface and crossed our fingers. No nibbles on the troll. We never got to see a Sail jump but we did catch a monster fish on the wreck. Nice catch!
