Yesterday the Lady Pamela II sportfishing boat turned up the heat on springtime sharkfishing, hooking up a huge hammerhead shark and a big bullshark in three hundred feet of water, offshore Fort Lauderdale. These bruisers could not resist the fresh bluefish, kingfish and bonito we were using for bait. When our anglers got the hammerhead behind the boat even the mate was awed. He said Whoa! That is a big boy T-head there!
Those were some big words from a guy that has seen a lot of hammerheads. After some great pictures, and high-fives, this impressive fish was released.
We also caught a few more mahi-mahi yesterday along with some kingfish and bonitos. Even a nice 12 lb bluefish found its way into the boat!
A reminder to all you snapper fishermen, vermillion snapper season opened on April 1. The fishing has not gotten red hot for snappers yet, but we are expecting the bite to kick off soon with the warmer weather we are now seeing. Give us a call.
