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.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
