Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

There was a brutal 25-30 mph wind out of the north northwest kicking up 5-8 foot seas today, but we had three boatloads of anglers that were ready to fish. The Lady Pamela I, Lady Pamela II and the Lady Pamela III were about the only charter boats out today and we had a fishing bonanza. I was running the Lady Pamela II and we had caught one blackfin tuna and had a few kingfish chop offs when the Lady Pamela I called us out to a log that was floating a little further offshore. They already had six mahi-mahi in the box so we headed out there to get in on the action. On the first pass by the log we caught a wahoo and three nice mahi-mahi. I then saw a few frigate birds just north of us, in 600 feet of water, so I radioed to the LP III to join us and go after the birds. As soon as we got under the birds we all hooked up and it was fish after fish. All three boats were only out for two hours because of the weather, but I caught 12 mahi-mahi, two wahoo and a tuna, and the other two boats each caught more than six mahi-mahi and a few tunas each. All of our anglers were sick or queasy, but everybody caught fish. Way to hang in there guys!

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!
