Mom and Son team catch the BIG one off the coast of Fort Lauderdale

Today while we had a great catch we never did get any pictures.

We had Ben from Michigan who now lives down here in south Florida along with his mom Kelly who was visiting from Michigan out for a morning of deep-sea fishing aboard the Hooked up off the coast of Fort Lauderdale.

We started out trolling the reef and caught a box full of bonitos and a black fin tuna.

Ok now that the skunk was out of the box we brought in the trolling gear and out went the kites with live bait along with a couple shark baits set down deep.

Today it was the deep bait that paid off when Ben found himself doing battle with a big shark.

After a good 20 min back and forth tug a war Ben finally got this 95-inch hammerhead shark to the boat.

Nice going Ben.
