Today we started out fishing with Mike, Shaq and Christina all from New York.
We went right to trolling just outside the reefs and once again the bonitos were biting like mad dogs.
We ended up with a box full of bonitos and 3 kingfish.
As we got back to the dock we had Jerry, Steve, Bob and Randy all from the warm state of Minnesota waiting and eager to give luck a shot at some deep sea fishing off the coast of Ft Lauderdale.
Once again we started out with the sure catch and yes once again the bonitos were biting good.
Once everyone had caught a good hand full of fish we brought in the trolling gear and set out some shark baits.
We had one bait on the surface one down about 150 feet attached to a balloon for a bobber and one down 350 feet on the bottom.
We waited and waited and than all at once the balloon took off the rod bent over line was screaming off the reel and we were Hooked Up.
Bob jumped in the chair and the fight was on.
After a good 30 min battle Bob finally got this monster hammerhead shark to the boat. J.J. slid Bob’s fish in the boat in order to get a quick measurement to have a replica trophy made got all 3 hooks out and slid him right back into the sea to fight again anther day.
Guys sorry we did not have the camera aboard so Bob if you guys could e mail us the photos we would love to post them.
Thanks again to all of our anglers today for spending the day fishing with us aboard the Hooked Up.
