Bluefin Tuna Fishing

from sept 22- sept 29

What does the Lady Pamela II crew do on vacation? Fishing! What else! A few of us from the Lady Pamela II went to Nova Scotia for six days of giant bluefin tuna fishing the last week of September. We had Captain Steve and mate Mark on the boat called the Brian’s Last and we had the best time. On the day of fishing there our good friend Mike Q landed one nice fish around 900 lb. Darin was the first angler up on the second day and he caught one around 800 lb. My dad Peter, “the old man”, also got in on the action and reeled in about a 750 lb fish.


The tuna were everywhere feeding on herring on the third day. The commercial herring boats had moved in and we were hand feeding 1000 lb bluefin tuna right from the boat! We logged more than 8 hours of GoPro of underwater movie footage that is unbelievable. Both Jeff and Mike each caught fish, with Jeff’s weighing in at 900 lb. During the next two days we did more of the same, handfeeding the fish in the morning, then trying to hook up in the afternoon. I got to land one at 906 lbs on the fifth day. It sure rounded out the trip of a lifetime with my dad!

On our last day of fishing we made Mark the mate fight one of the fish we hooked up. This fish turned out to be an 1100 lb monster of a fish. It is something that not many people could even imagine.

Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
