30lb Mahi – Mahi Fishing in Ft Lauderdale, Florida!

April 17, 2010

April 16th, 2010

Fishing in Fort Lauderdale was great today. Jimmy and Sarah, from Jacksonville, set sail aboard the Lady Pamela II while Mike, from Delaware, joined the Lady Pamela I. Both boats left Lauderdale Marina at 8 AM with high hopes of hooking up with the last bit of the Sailfish Fort Lauderdale will see until the season kicks off again. Captain Paul and I ran the Lady Pamela II to 300 ft of water and popped the kites into the air while the Lady Pamela I trolled the reef. After an hour of waiting and wishing for the bite in 300 ft of water, I moved the boat around and the mid bait in 150 ft of water got a hit. Jimmy landed a Hammerhead Shark and a nice size Mahi for good measure aboard the Lady Pamela II. The Lady Pamela I came back to the dock with a 4 Mahi – Mahi, one 30 lb’er and 2 King Mackerel; looks like Mike will be eating good tonight!

TESTIMONIALS

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.
