Fort Lauderdale Mahi Mahi Fishing

There was mahi-mahi mayhem offshore Ft. Lauderdale today as the Lady Pamela sportfishing boats were busy reeling in everything from 25 lb gaffers to little schoolies. Captain JJ ventured offshore into about 800 feet of water where big rafts of Sargassum were teeming with baitfish and mahi. The ocean was calm and clear which made for some exciting site fishing around the rafts of seaweed. There is nothing to get the blood rushing like the sight of a school of mahi, with their flashing blues and greens, come screaming onto a bait you’ve just pitched into the water!

Captain Adam stayed closer to shore and had similar success with the mahi in about 200 feet of water. He had to troll his fish up along a current rip just offshore though, as the Sargassum weed was much more spread out. The two Lady Pamela boats combined had nearly 50 hookups and brought in 20 nice fish during the course of the day.

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.
