Spring Trolling and Daytime Swordfishing

April 16, 2018
Lady Pamela Sportfishing has had a busy couple of weeks, so I am just now finding the time to update you on the South Florida fishing scene. First, I want to give a shout out to James and his mother Brenda from Oakville, Ontario, Canada. They were in South Florida visiting relatives over spring break and shared a split afternoon charter. James is a high-schooler who has been an avid follower of Lady Pamela fishing, both on the internet and email, for several years now and he finally got the chance to come fishing with us. The fishing on that day was not particularly hot but James did end up landing a nice Blackfin tuna. At least he and his relatives were able to enjoy a nice dinner!

This morning fishing was a little different, as the action heated up for six buddies out with us on a six-hour charter. By the time we returned to the dock in the afternoon the gang was able to pose for a nice catch of 3 wahoo, 3 mahi-mahi, a couple of kingfish and a skipjack tuna. Needless to say, there were smiles all around! 

Mid-April and May is prime time for both daytime big game shark and swordfish action. We are targeting game sharks like hammerheads and threshers with chum slicks in 300-400 feet of water. Our daytime trips for swords generally run six hours, as we are fishing further offshore in 1200-1400 feet of water. Springtime swords tend to run larger than those fish caught in the summer so now is the time to book a trip. us a call!

Tight Lines,
