The billfish bite was spectacular today, with both the Lady Pamela II and Lady Pamela IV racking up big release numbers. The Lady Pamela II caught and released 13 sailfish and a blue marlin, while the Lady Pamela IV had a total of 8 sailfish releases. Both boats were fishing multiple lines suspended from kites, using live goggleyes for bait.

Great Day On the water

It was a bit of a surprise to hook up the blue marlin, as not that many are caught in the Ft. Lauderdale area these days. Most billfishermen are focusing on sailfish which are frequently found in 180-220 feet of water, while marlins tend to be found further offshore. Lady Pamela II sportfishing has been lucky with the marlin though, landing a 400 lb’er about this same time last year.

Hunter, Pamela, and Jim escaped the freezing cold of North Dakota for a day of fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II. It was a fine day of hot fishing action for our guests from the north as they landed a 35 lb gag grouper and a nice red grouper. They also bent the rods on a few big kingfish that were trolled up on the outer reef edge. The blackfin tunas were around as well, with a couple of nice-sized fish landed and quickly iced for fresh sashimi back at the dock.

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.
