August 9‑12, 2014


This has been a crazy good week of fishing here in Fort Lauderdale. In the last 5 days we have caught some amazing sharks, including some big hammerheads and sandbar sharks. The big catch of the week though was a 12 foot tiger shark estimated at over 600 pounds. It has been Lady Pamela II’s own personal version of shark week! In addition to sharks we’ve been catching nice mahi-mahi averaging 12 – 15 lbs. Of course every trip we’re catching some combination of 6 or more kingfish, bonitos, or blackfin tunas from the reef edge.


The nighttime snapper trips on the reef are producing some yellowtail, mangrove and mutton snappers. If our anglers can keep the baits down long enough they have found a few black and red groupers mixed in.


We took a group of anglers out nighttime swordfishing one night last week Wednesday and caught one 125 pound broadbill and pulled off two other fish that were pretty nice.

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
