Drift Fishing

“The Lady Pamela drift charter is the best deal in Fort Lauderdale. Captain David and Crew are the only charter boats in the area that are professonal and courteous. Trust me I have fished with other crews in the area and they are grumpy and just take your money. I fished with my 2 sons and we had a blast catching dolphin in the summer time. At the end of the trip the mate cleaned and bagged all the fish for us.” -Matt Halal

Daily Drift Fishing Trips on the Reef

On our drift fishing trips (8AM-12PM / 1PM-5PM) we load the boat with top of the line tackle, bait (squid, ballyhoo, sardine) and head 1-2 miles offshore anywhere from 70 – 150 ft of water on the reef. Once lines hit the water, expect to catch: Bonito, Tuna, Snapper, Grouper, King Mackerel, Wahoo and Mahi – Mahi. If you’re lucky enough, you might even hook a Sailfish in shallow. Fishing in Fort Lauderdale is seasonal, every 2 – 3 months a new species migrates to our waters. Want to see what we’re catching right now, check out our updated fishing reports.

All Day Trolling Trip Thursday

pam19Every Thursday, the Lady Pamela III heads offshore for an 8-hour All Day Trolling trip (8AM-4PM). About 10 miles offshore is where the big ones tend to hang out. When hunting down South Florida’s favorite fish, we look for lingering weedlines and floating debris, which may house many different species. It is common to hook up with Wahoo fish, dolphin, and numerous other fish. If any one species isn’t cooperating, we will try several different fishing techniques to get the bite. We can drop bait on a shipwreck for Snapper, Grouper or maybe even an Amberjack. If conditions are right, live bait Kite Fishing for Sailfish is also an option while fishing offshore. The best part about the All Day Trolling Trip; we have plenty of time to fish plenty of methods.

Awesome Trip!


I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
