Today was a good day as Chris and I had a really fun trip. We had a bachelor party on the boat in the morning charter with Scott and his friends from New York. They were out for a good time so we started out trolling for kingfish, bonito and mahi-mahi. The trolling was quite slow so we went to big game shark fishing, as they wanted a big fish. We sat in 350 feet of water for most of the trip before we finally got a bite. It was a monster bite though, and the bachelor got to fight this brutish game shark. He worked the fish for 30 minutes before he got smooth hammerhead to the boat. It was a great battle, and the New Yorkers really enjoyed the fight.

This morning was a private six-hour charter with Lee and his wife Tiffany, and Jay and his wife Brenda. Mike and I left the dock with our charter at 7 a.m. and went out to the whistle buoy trying to catch some live bait. The whistle buoy so-called because it actually whistles, is the main entrance marker to Port Everglades inlet and generally has schools of bait around it. We succeeded in catching a few live baits, and then went deep, looking for a monster fish. A few hours later Lee hooked up and brought to the boat a nice scalloped hammerhead shark. Lee wanted to get Jay a big game fish so we continued fishing in 350 feet of water with big fresh kingfish and bonito baits. We finally got the bite just before lines in, and Jay got his big game shark too. These folks were a lot of fun talking to as Lee and Tiffany are tournament bass fishermen. We heard all about the tournaments that he and Tiffany fish, and all the places they have travelled to. What an experience!
