 Good Hit Sportfishing leaves the dock around 1:00pm, on a sunny afternoon in South Florida with only a couple clouds in the sky. After a 15 minute boat ride, we arrive at the fishing grounds. The ocean was magnificent, less than 2 feet, flat as a lake. We then put the trolling gear in the water, 3 planners and 2 highlines. We usually fish Bonita strips with sea witches on the planners and the high lines. After about 5 minutes of fishing, we got our first Good Hit, FISH ON!!

We then boated our first King Mackerel, and before we could even get the line back in the water... we got another strike. This goes on for about an hour and a half we reach our limit of King Fish. I guess we were in the right place at the right time. After reaching our limit of Mackerel we begin to make our approach for some deeper water in search of some Big Game. We later arrive in 350 Feet of water, and then deploy 3 live Goggle Eyes, a King Mackerel head and a King Mackerel tail.

We put the 3 live Goggle Eyes in the kite, along with the King Mackerel Tail, we want those bait directly on the surface. We then put out the King Mackerel head to the bottom in 350 feet of water. We watched the baits carefully till its just about time to pull the lines in and head in.

Out of the corner of my eye, I see a large dorsal fin. The large creature is heading directly for my right kite with the king tail. After watching this beautiful beast swim around the bait for 2 minutes-which felt like eternity-he decides to eat. I then floor the boat ahead to set the Hook. FISH ON!! CLEAR ALL THE LINES!!!!
After we clear all the lines from entanglement Andrew gets in the stand up harness for  the battle. We fight the beast for around 30 minutes before the fish is boat-side. The Fish is a Large Hammerhead, 91" to be exact.

We then pull the big Hammer head in the boat for some measurements and a couple of pictures. We then immediately release the Big Girl back into the water; she then swims off in a hurry. By that time it was well after 5:00 pm, so we make our way back to the dock. Congratulations to Peter, his brother Andrew and their friends on the Big Catch.
