Lady Pamela II Sportfishing Charters


February 4th, 2011

Scott, Bobby, Daren and I went nighttime Swordfishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV on Friday night. Scott and Bobby are in South Florida from Panama on a business trip for a Viking Yacht Preview Show. Scott said in Panama, the squids eat your bait before a Swordfish could even have a chance; Scott decided he’d try his luck in Fort Lauderdale. We left the dock at 6:30 PM and made it to our destination around 8 PM. For bait, we used live bluerunners and dead squid. It wasn’t long before our 100 ft tip rod (which was under the light) bait was getting whacked. The live bluerunner was getting hit hard, but the fish never hooked itself. I reeled it up and the bait was gone. I added fresh bait and dropped it back down. Five minutes didn’t pass before we were hooked up with a nice size Swordfish. Bobby began the fight on the 130 penn, before the hooks pulled. We made a move to the south, set up for round two and Darin came tight on our second bait. Bobby reeled in a 73″ Pumpkin Swordfish, weighing in at 180 lb’s. (Pumpkin meaning the meat is orange…and tasty!)
