from some of the BEST PLACES TO FISH !

3rd October, 2009: FISHING REPORT:  Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Captain David Ide of Lady Pamela II Sportfishing Charters


Starting off October with a monster Mako Shark!

This afternoon, Captain Paul and Captain Darin set sail with Ryan, his daughter and his wife aboard the Lady Pamela II. Once Captain Paul cleared the port and hit open water, he led the family north to troll the reef. Trolling wasn’t attracting; Ryan’s daughter reeled in a King Mackerel and that was it for the bite. Ryan had something bigger in mind so they headed to a shipwreck in 300 ft of blue water and made a drop. A live bluerunner caught the eye of a nice fish. Ryan was in the chair and ready to reel. Once Ryan battled the fish to the surface, Captain Paul yelled “SHARK!! DARIN, SHARK!” Paul ran down from the bridge and grabbed a shark rig as Darin pulled the Amberjack into the boat. Paul cut a chunk out of the Amberjack to attract the game shark and threw it over the side. At this point, the shark is munching on the bait as Paul set the hook. “Round two Ryan!” Ryan won the 30 minute battle with a monster Mako shark. Once they got a hold of the leader, Paul threw the harpoon and the fish took a run, he was not a happy camper. After a tough 30 minutes, another 10 minute run is brutal on the angler. It was all worth it in the end once they got to see the set of teeth on this bad boy. Awesome catch guys!

Mako Shark with Grilled Pineapple Salsa
1 medium ripe pineapple, trimmed, cored, quartered lengthwise and cut again lengthwise
Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
2 limes, juiced and lime halves reserved
1 small red onion, minced
1/2 bunch fresh mint, leaves finely chopped (about 1/2 cup leaves)
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves finely chopped (about 1/2 cup leaves)
Couple pinches kosher salt
Superfine sugar, optional
4 (8-ounce) center-cut mako shark fillets
Drizzle extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
20 grinds black pepper

Heat a grill pan or griddle over medium-high heat. Lightly rub the pineapple pieces with oil. Grill on all sides, about 2 minutes per side or until lightly caramelized with nice char marks. Remove from grill and set aside to cool slightly.

Cut grilled pineapple into 1/2-inch dice and add to a medium bowl. Add all remaining salsa ingredients, including the lime halves. These will lend the additional lime oils in the rinds to the mixture, making a more aromatic salsa. Set aside until ready to use.

While grill is still hot, rub each shark steak with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Place steaks on grill across the grill ribs and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Gently turn fish so it does not fall apart. Once the flesh has become opaque and firm to the touch, it is cooked through. Remove to a platter and spoon salsa over fish. Serve immediately.
