Fishing Report: Sport Fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida
January 12th, 2011
Today, Tim went fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV with his four daughters and his wife, talk about being out numbered. Tim was smart; he told his gang they were going for an Intracoastal cruise. Once he had all aboard, Tim told Captain Paul and Leo they were going fishing and donít tell the girls. Before they headed offshore, they picked up live goggle eyes for live bait kite fishing. Captain Paul led the Lady Pamela IV to 120 ft of water, where a light N wind was present, blowing about 8 Ė 15 mph. The kites went up and they were ready to roll. Three Sailfish came into our spread, but got away. In the mist of all the Sailfish action, Leo hooked a nice size Mahi Ė Mahi and a hefty King Mackerel. Tim was licking his lips, the girls on the other hand wanted to see the homes of the rich and famous. Just before it was time to go back to the dock, a Sailfish ate and Tim caught it.

Today was one of the most successful fun fishing days I have ever had. A good fishing buddy of mine, Ed, Drew of the My Doris fishing team and myself went fishing just north of Port Everglades aboard Edís 54 Viking Sport fishing boat. We filled the live well with 5 dozen goggle eyes and a few pilchards for live bait. It was blowing NW 5-20 mph, with a 3-4 ft seas. By 8 AM, we were situated with two kites and six baits in the water. Our first four bites were duds; they ate and fell off immediately. After our 4th tease, we started actually catching the fish and having fun. To make a very long story short, we went 18 for 25 on the Sailfish right out front of Fort Lauderdale Beach.
