Fishing in Ft Lauderdale = 3 Sailfish, King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna Can't Post

May 12th, 2010

Today, Angelina and her family from Panama Beach, Florida joined Jake, an avid Apalachicola angler, aboard the Lady Pamela II with Captain Paul and me. Before we headed offshore, we caught a few Bluerunner’s and Speedo’s. Live bait wasn’t cooperating, but we did manage to catch enough. Shortly after, our trolling spread went into the water and the Kingfish were snapping. The Blackfin Tuna began to show their faces as well and were biting nicely. We stopped at a wreck to give our anglers an opportunity to tug on a big fish, but with no current, fishing didn’t go as planned.

The Lady Pamela I took part in a full day, 10-boat convention fishing charter. They were very lucky with two Sailfish bites, 8 King Mackerel reaching up to 20 lb’s, two Blackfin Tuna and three Bonito fish while kite fishing in 200 ft of blue water. They ended the day with a third jumping Sailfish, who managed to pull the hook before a battle.
