Today Captain Darin and mate Mike had one helluva trip on the Lady Pamela IV. There were six anglers together on a split charter, and everybody caught fish. The group landed kingfish, bonito and two Blackfin tunas. After catching all these fish they decided to try some shark fishing out in 350 feet of water. There was plenty of fresh bonito for bait as it was just harvested that morning. Once setting out the three big rods mounted with130 Penn International reels they sat patiently and waited for a bite.

One hour later, the rod bent over and angler Philip jumped into the fighting chair. After a 20 minute battle a huge Mako shark popped up behind the boat! These are one of the fastest sharks that swim in the ocean and it was an awesome sight. These fish are not usually captured around here, but this is the second one we’ve caught this year. They are normally found much further offshore on the east coast, so this has been a real fishing bonanza for a couple of our lucky anglers. Way to go Philip!

Tight Lines,
