With the breeze out of the east, northeast,15-20 mph, seas running 3-5, blue waters pushed into the 2nd reef in80 ft. of water. 1.8 miles from shore iswhere our drop off is located sitting in 120 ft. of water at the sea buoy offof <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:city w:st="on">Fort Lauderdale</st1:city></st1:place>.

I went directly into kite fishing – flying two kites withtwo live Goggle Eyes from each kite and one from the rigger. While Bas and I discussed fishing in Mauritiusthat sits in the Indian Ocean off of Madagascar, which both of us have fished,a Shark appeared on the right long kite. Dorsal out of the water, circling a frantic Goggle Eye – the Hammerheadate the Goggle Eye and swam off, not realizing he was hooked yet. We cleared the rest of the fishing lines andconcentrated on the Shark. Twentyminutes into the battle, the line went slack – we pulled the hook on theShark. We reset the same set-up – thistime another Hammerhead Shark appeared on the right short. Bas was the angler and he brought the 6 ½ ft.Hammerhead Shark to the boat as pictures were taken, and released to fightagain. We setup our fishing lines again– a black shadow appeared on the left short kite – Sailfish!!! Eva was the angler this time. Dorsal and bill came out of the water as hechased the Goggle Eye around till capturing it. Immediately the Sailfish came out of the water and tail-walked towardsthe boat, which felt like an eternity. From there he did a 360 showing off his beautiful neoncolors while the sun glimmered down on the Sailfish. Our mate, Jackson, wired the fish, pictureswere taken and the Sailfish was released to do battle again. Back to setting up again – this time catchinga Black Tip Shark and a 4 ft. Barracuda.
