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 heâ€™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 wasnâ€™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 didnâ€™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 73â€³ Pumpkin Swordfish, weighing in at 180 lbâ€™s. (Pumpkin meaning the meat is orangeâ€¦and tasty!)
