Kingfish, Mahi - Mahi, Black Groupers and Amberjacks
This morning Mr. Wise joined the Lady Pamela II for a full day of fishing offshore Fort Lauderdale. We started off the morning right, trolling for kingfish in 100 ft of water using planner boards and fresh bonito strips. After we had a handful of kings in the boat, we ran to a nice edge in 400 ft of blue water. The weed lines were surrounding the boat and so were the mahi - mahi. Mr. Wise landed 3 nice size dolphin anywhere from 6 - 8 lbs.
Around 1:30 we headed out of Shallow Harbor with Dad and all his girls hoping to tug on something big. Wreck fishing was on the agenda, so we hit the wrecks up and down the coast and had a few nice bites. We hooked two nice size black groupers, but both fish pulled the hooks. Last wreck of the day and we got the bite. After 20 minutes, Dad reeled in a nice size amberjack on 30 lb test.
Great fishing today.
Sea ya tomorrow...
