Fishing Fort Lauderdale Lady Pamela 2

David, and his friends from Indiana, joined Darin and I on the 8-12 morning trip. The trip was for Bob, who always wanted to catch a nice fish in south Florida waters. We bought a dozen live goggleyes from the Fort Lauderdale Marina on the way out. These live baitfish cost extra (from $60 to $100 per dozen) on top of the charter price, but it is well worth it. There was a strong 2 knot south current that morning and the wind was blowing 15- 20 knots out of the northeast, with seas running 4-6 feet. I was running the boat from the tower hoping to see sailfish tailing down sea but I didn’t see any. However, there was a large container ship anchored in 140 feet of water, and at this time of year, if there is a ship anchored offshore like that, they hold a lot of bait. That means there are fish there. Once we got to the ship, about 20 minutes after we left to the dock, Darin and Dominic put the kites up. As I have said before, kitefishing is the best type of fish to do in the winter time using live baits. So, right off the bat, with our first kite up, with one bait in the water, we jumped off a sailfish. We got the baits back out ASAP and within 20 minutes we hooked a monster sailfish. Our angler fought the fish all the way out to 350 feet of water before we boated it, took some pictures and let the fish go. It sure made the trip for David and Bob! We also caught a few mahi-mahi as a little icing to put on the sailfish cake! Way to go guys!

Tight Lines,

Capt David Ide
