Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report 05/03/09

We had three customers on a a six hour trip today. We started out trolling and caught a couple of kingfish. After an hour plus of trolling we went shark fishing. We spent some time at that before a nice hammerhead shark came up to eat one of the surface baits. Once it found the bait we let it eat it for a little bit to make sure it had the bait before hooking it. By the time we cleared the other baits the fish had taken a lot of line off of the reel, into the dacron backing. We slowly gained the line back onto the reel. Over an hour later we got the leader brought the fish up next to the boat got the hooks back and released the shark. We spent a little more time trolling before going back to the dock.
