Another Great Day Fishing

August 20, 2012

August 17, 2012

Lady Pamela boats I and IV of the Lady Pamela sportfishing fleet, along with the Lady Pamela III driftboat, were busy on the water today catching a variety of Ft. Lauderdale gamefish. Lady Pamela I worked the outer reef edge this morning, trolling up some aggressive barracudas and kingfish. One barracuda, going 30 lbs put on a great aerial display, jumping clear out of the water, tailwalking, and flipping.

The anglers on the Lady Pamela IV also landed a few kingfish as well as a nice wahoo. The wahoo fishing has been spotty over the past few weeks, so this was a nice surprise catch. The LP IV crew also spent a little time sharkfishing, catching and releasing two nice sandbar sharks. One was over six feet, which is big for sandbar sharks, as their maximize size is only about seven feet.

The driftboat had a good Friday night fishing trip, with the crew anchoring in 80 feet of water and chumming up a mix of yellowtail, and vermilion snapper. A few small grouper were also caught and released. Overall, it was a nice way to end a busy fishing week.

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.
