6 ft Sailfish caught offshore Ft Lauderdale Can't Post

December 15th, 2008

This morning Tommy and Carrie Myers went for round two aboard the Lady Pamela II. They fished with us the day before, caught some nice fish, and got sick. Today they wanted to catch a big fish and conditions were looking good. We started off the morning with live goggle eyes dangling from the kites (that really turns them on). Not even 10 minutes after the kites went up, a sailfish ate the bait 20 feet from the boat. Darin was doing his thing in the cockpit as the sail was jumping everywhere, putting on a great show. Tommy fought this fish for 30 minutes before he gave in. The 6 ft sail was the biggest saltwater fish he'd ever caught. We made two daytime swordfish drops offshore and got two bites, but pulled the hooks. It was a tough day of fishing out there, but we got Tommy his big fish.

Tight Lines!
