April Fishing Off Fort Lauderdale

April 13, 2015

This week has been a mixed bag with fishing, mainly associated with weather changes. On Sunday we went kite fishing for sailfish right after a cold front came through, and the billfishing was awesome. We went 12 for 19 on the sailfish bite and boy it was busy in the cockpit. We had rods bending, reels screaming, fish jumping, and our anglers hootin’ and hollerin’! The day after the front went by the billfishing completely dropped off, but the Lady Pamela II found a few dolphin, along with some kingfish and blackfin tunas.

The last couple days of fishing has been all about the game sharks. Hammerheads and silky sharks are really starting to come through the Ft. Lauderdale area as they migrate from the north to the south.

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.
