Jeffery and his wife from Washington, DC, fished the 1-5 p.m. charter this afternoon, aboard the Lady Pamela II. The weather was blowing 25 mph out of the northeast which made the seas a little big, but we could still go fishing. We had to go slow on the way out so there was plenty of time to rig a nice trolling spread. The baits were put out as soon as we cleared the inlet and once we got to 60 feet of water two 15 lb mahi-mahi slammed the lines. Captain Paul was yelling at the mate Peter to get Jeffery into the fighting chair. As we were fighting the two mahi-mahi Paul got a bite on the high line bait. This bait is trolled from high up on the fly bridge and it was a huge sailfish. Jeffery sure had his hands full while all this was going on but somehow he got it done! He was reeling in fish the whole entire trip. We ended up with 7 mahi-mahi and that huge sailfish. What a great trip.

Tight Lines,
