No clue saw it on FB and didn't see it here so I figured everyone would like to see it.

I'm sure someone on here knows/has used this boat ramp.

I did that once and attracted a large crowd. fought that son of a bitch for 1 hour and hauled in a f--king manatee. didn't realize what it was until I had clubbed it.

15 street ramp in Fort Lauderdale. I used to launch out of there all the time and never saw anything like that. Tarpon, snook and jacks, yes, but never a gol.

That's the 15street ramp in fort Lauderdale. Hooked it at the cleaning table and landed it at the west ramp. Years ago we would fish the table area when the weather was bad., caught many groupers, snappers and sharks. Hopefully the yo-yo's don't take one home.

we used to catch them like that in the tortugas at the cleaning station on the main dock. no ramp, so no way to land it. they love yellowtail skins

Several years ago on one of his shows Jose Weibe was at a dock where they would fight them on handlines, not sure if they were using hooks though just bait and rope. Anyway it looked like his shoulders were gonna be ripped out of their sockets.

Those things are running over all our reefs and wrecks. We need a season for them.
