Trolling along the reef has been the best I have seen, with bonitos galore. The Lady Pamela II is also had a few kingfish mixed in. Today one of our other Pamelas caught a nice sailfish. The five foot fish put on a good show before our anglers got it to the boat.

Today was another big bonito day as we caught 30 nice fish in the morning. The Lady Pamela IV then went offshore in search of bigger game, and we found it. We landed a 40 lb. wahoo that took a seawitch feather tipped with a fresh bonito strip. This fish hit the bait like a freight train and then it was off to the races. Nice catch for our anglers.

There were plenty of sargassum weedlines offshore so we were also hoping for a few mahi-mahi, but we had no bites. The Lady Pamela II was also out and she caught 15 small mahi-mahi, putting 6 keepers in the fish box. It was good day all around for the Lady Pamela fleet.

Tight Lines,
