2 Giant Barracuda to end the day; Fishing in Ft. Lauderdale

This afternoon, Mario and his family from Canada set sail aboard the Lady Pamela II with Captain Paul and me. As soon as Mario stepped into the cockpit, he informed Captain Paul not to waste his time with little fish, only the big boys. I rigged up shark baits and we ran straight to 350 ft of water right out front. We felt very confident in the spot we chose but we weren’t getting any action. We sat in the same spot for 3 ½ hours, swapping out our bait every 30 minutes just to make sure everything was perfect, which it was on our end, the fish just weren’t feeding. We didn’t give up after our 3 hrs in 350, we ran to a shipwreck to see if anybody was home. As soon as we dropped bait on the wreck, Mario’s 8th grade son sat in the chair over the water waiting for the bite. Wreck fishing was day and night compared to Shark fishing. We left the wreck with two nice size fish that Mario’s son’s caught, an Amberjack and an Almaco Jack. Before we headed home, we made a pit stop at a shallower shipwreck with live Bonito as our bait. We caught two monster Barracuda, fishing turned out to be fantastic!

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!
