Wreck Fishing in Fort Lauderdale, FloridaPosted on: August 30, 2009
Today was one of those days where you just say to yourself “Today is going to be a great day on the water.” We had a great group of customers on board, the weather was absolutely beautiful and the fish were biting…big time!
Repeat clients from Dallas came back for more this year. A great group of people join the Lady Pamela II every August for a day on the water and some fun in the sun.
We headed out the Inlet, seas were flat as glass and the Kings and Bonitos weren’t hiding. Loads of fish were being caught anywhere from 5 – 10 lb’s. We reached our limit in no time at all and dipped into our well full of live Speedo’s and Bluerunner’s for wreck fishing. Our first drop of the day produced a great fight between our angler and a 30 lb Almaco Jack.
Second drop was a no go. On the third drop we got a monster bite. The rod bent over immediately and line was steaming off the reel. It was like playing tug-a-war, but great fun. After a long battle and watching the rod tip touch the water a few times, a huge Warsaw Grouper popped up like a balloon and we won the fight.
