Today we had a shared charter with James and Lorie from Texarkana Texas and brothers Francois and Jean from Switzerland.
Once again we went right to trolling the reef and yes once again there were some king fish and bonitos biting.
After everyone had caught plenty of kings and bonitos we tried slow trolling a live bonito over a ship wreck and BAM we were Hooked Up. This time Lorie got the rod and after a good 15 min of back and forth fight she gat this nice barracuda to the boat.
At this point we had worked our way about 7 miles south of our inlet so we had to run back toward home. As we got to our inlet we decided since we still had one live bonito left in our live well that we would just take a couple min to see if any fish were around the ledge that is just outside of Port Everglades inlet.
It only took about 2 min till BAM we were Hooked Up again with another big barracuda. This time James jumped at the shot of fighting one of these big fish on light spinning tackle.
James fought his fish for about 10 min and just after J.J. grabbed the leader and was about to bring this big barracuda aboard the hooks pulled. (RATS) O well it was still considered a catch since J.J. had the leader in his hand.
I would like to thank all of our anglers today for fishing aboard the Hooked Up and Francois and Jean we are looking forward to fishing with you guys again on Saturday.
