Sails Kings and a boat load of FUN aboard Hooked Up
This morning we started out our day fishing with Mark, Martin, Stan and Luke all from Chicago Illinois.
We motored out to 150 feet of water and set out both kites with 2 live baits suspended from each kite and the trap was set.
After a good 30 min of waiting without a bite when all of a sudden this big sailfish popped up and darted after our left long kite bait.
It only took a matter of seconds and we were Hooked Up.
Martin jumped in the chair and the fight was on. This was Martin’s first shot at a big fish like this but he was up for the challenge. There was going to be nothing easy about this fight! At first the sail was dancing all over the surface putting on this great show for us but then he just headed down and kept digging down deep.
It seemed Martin would gain 10 feet then the fish would take 20 it was a back and forth tug a war for well over 30 min but Martin hung in there and soon enough Martin got his first monster sail to the boat.
WHY TO GO MARTIN
After getting a Measurement of Martin’s sailfish and a couple of quick photos back out went the baits and once again the trap was set.
Soon afterwards Mark caught a nice king fish followed up by Stan also boating a kingfish.
Guy’s thanks again for a fun morning of deep-sea fishing aboard the Hooked Up off the coast of Fort Lauderdale.
As we pulled back to the dock we had our afternoon trip eager to give their luck a shot @ some deep-sea fishing.
We had Paul, Michelle, Daniel, Steven, Stephanie and David all from Philadelphia.
Ok this afternoon it was not big fish that we were after it was just action and hopefully some good eating fish.
So we went trolling down the reef with 2 planner boards running about 45 feet deep along with 3 baits skipping across the surface.
The good news was that the kingfish were biting about as well as I have ever seen them bite and we had our limit before I knew it.
The bad news was that we never did find any dolphin fish or any other kind of good eating fish.
While kingfish may be an edible fish they are quite oily and if you don’t like the taste of strong fish then you properly won’t like king fish witch was the case with our group from Philly.
All the same we had a ball and once again I would like to thank all of our anglers today for fishing aboard the Hooked Up.
