Today Nick from New York chartered the boat to take his son Mark and his son’s golf coach Crabby out for the afternoon for a few hours of deep-sea fishing off the coast of Ft Lauderdale.
We started out trolling the reef with 2 planner board running about 45 feet deep along with 3 surface baits skipping across the surface.
We caught a half a dozen king fish in about the first hour of fishing.
Ok we had the skunk out of the box and everyone had caught fish now it was time to go for a big one. In came all the trolling gear and out went the kites with 4 baits suspended from them.
At first kite fishing started out slow producing no bites when all of a sudden up popped this big sailfish all over one of our little live baits. At last he took the bait and line started walking off the reel. We locked up the reel and that’s when all hell broke lose.
This fish went nuts dancing all over the surface of the waves. Mark jumped in the chair and the fight was on.
After a good 20 Min Mark got this monster sailfish to the boat.
J.J. reached over and pulled Marks sail aboard for a quick photo and a measurement to have a replica trophy made of Marks first sail.
Way to go Mark!!
Nick, Mark and Crabby thanks again for a fun afternoon.
