Sailfish on the Troll in 100 ft - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Can't Post

February 8th, 2010

This afternoon, the Lady Pamela II had a 5 PM - 9 PM Tarpon trip with John, his father, John Sr. and his brother. It doesnít get dark until about 6 PM in Fort Lauderdale so I mentioned trolling for an hour or so before the sun set and they were excited to fish both sides, offshore and inshore. Once we reached 100 ft of water, Adam put the trolling gear out with fresh bonito strips, mylar seawitches and two planters, one 50 ft below the surface and one 60 ft below. We circled the buoy three times before we got a hit and Adam set the hook. John jumped in front of his dad to get in the fighting chair and begin the battle. I backed the boat down to the Sailfish so the guys could get a few pictures then we performed tag and release for a future fight. As the sun started to set, we headed for the flat inshore in search of a Tarpon. We sat on the shallow flat for three hours without a nibble but the bite out front made it all worth while.

I look forward to hooking you guys up with a Tarpon in the future!

Tight Lines!
