Sailfish are STILL snapping; Fort Lauderdale Fishing Can't Post

May 1st, 2010

Scott and his family came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II in Ft Lauderdale today. We left the dock for a 7 AM start and as soon as we got to the buoy, the Kingfish were attacking our bait. Within 20 minutes of trolling, we caught four King Mackerel over 15 lbís. As soon as we caught a few Kingfish, we ran to the blue edge in 190 ft of water and set up our spread. After 30 minutes of soaking our bait, a 9 ft Hammerhead swam up and ate. One of Scottís sons jumped into the chair and put his game face on. At the same time, I was feeding a Sailfish. As soon as I set the hook with the Sailfish, it began its series of head shaking leaps just feet from the transom. We caught both the Hammerhead and the Sailfish and then released our trolling gear back into the water. We had another Sailfish on before it pulled the hook. The Sailfish bite generally fizzles out by May, hey, we arenít complaining!
