Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo & Big Mahi Spring Fishing Report

May 20, 2018

Wow, what a spring it has been for good fishing in Fort Lauderdale.  We have been catching blackfin tuna consistently along with a lot of mahi and a few wahoo.  The sailfish have slowed down a little as the wind has been out of the South, but on the days it turns North we are […]

Spring Trolling and Daytime Swordfishing

April 17, 2018

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 […]

Wahoo With Stripes

The Best Time of the Year to go Fishing!

April 10, 2018

I absolutely love April and May fishing in Fort Lauderdale.  The variety of fish in our area when “spring has sprung” is very exciting!  We have an abundance of bait, birds and game fish all in our area and it is only going to get better.  Sailfish, tuna, wahoo and mahi are just some of […]

Spring is in the Air in Fort Lauderdale

March 7, 2018

This morning we have taken the time to do maintenance on our boats and gear before our afternoon trips. Keeping our boats in tip-top shape is very important as we want to maximize the time you spend with us by having the tidiest boats, top of line gear and best captain/crew.  Trust that you will […]

Our Anglers Are Leaving With Sore Arms!

February 12, 2018

As we get into the middle of February, the fishing continues to be good on some days and not so great other days.  The one thing that has been consistent is the shark fishing.  We are seeing sharks on the surface as well as getting bites on the deep baits while drift fishing. There has […]

Fort Lauderdale Sailfish Fishing is Heating Up!

January 30, 2018

The past couple weeks have been pretty exciting on the edge (where the gulf stream current starts).  The recent sailfish tournaments have seen dozens of sailfish caught and our fleet has caught several as well including 4 in one day!  With Northeast winds this week, I expect the sail fishing to be the best it […]

Great DeepSea Fishing Here Now

January 28, 2018

What a week we have had here at Lady Pamela II sportfishing. I am so excited, I am fresh off the boat and wanted to let you know what’s been going on. Today we hooked up 8 sailfish between two boats and landed a couple of big wahoos that our lucky anglers will be taking […]

WINTER TIME FISHING

January 14, 2018

I am writing to bring you up to date on the exciting fishing action we have had off the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood area. The last week or so Lady Pamela sportfishing has been catching a few king mackerel, bluefish, and wahoos in around 300 to 400 feet of water. A little further out, in 400-500 feet […]

Tournament Fishing

November 16, 2017

It has already been one year since I kicked off the Lady Pamela II sportfishing’s, fish of the week series, and my kickoff species was the venerable Atlantic sailfish (Istiophorus albicans), the most popular of the billfishes found in our waters. Coincidentally, one year later, here we are, and Lady Pamela II sportfishing participated in […]

Fall Fishing For Sailfish, Mahi, Kingfish & More!

November 8, 2017

The end of this week has produced some impressive wreck fishing for Lady Pamela II sportfishing, as we have been landing a bunch of grouper, including blacks, reds, and gags on the shallower shipwrecks. We have been targeting these groupers using live mullet, live pinfish, and goggleyes dropped over the wrecks and debris fields in […]

TESTIMONIALS

Rough seas yield sailfish bonanza!

My wife and I arrived late on November 19th, as our taxi driver took us on a unscheduled (you know what I mean) tour. Captain David calmly assured me that we would still make out fine, and in fact the rough seas that day were actually a good sign and improved our chances of a sailfish strike. We stopped to pick up some of the best bait available which they call google-eyes (small extra cost, highly recommended). They fish sailfish with kites in south Florida if weather permits. I’ve fished with a kites before, but not in the same manner as the crew of the Lady Pamela II. This windy day they flew two kites with multiple baits on each. It was truly a sight to see and they explained everything as they were going, so it was very interesting and educational too. It wasn’t long before one of the orange floats was zig-zagging across the water and the mate grabbed the rod and free spooled for a few moments before gradually pushing the drag up to strike. Just as he did this, the orange ball seemingly flew horizontally across the top of the water at an amazing speed (I swear as fast as a car) for about 100 yards…the sail was hooked and the rush was exhilarating! I took the rod and began fighting the fish just as I heard the captain and mate discussing that this was a very large sailfish…smiles were all around the boat. The fish put on an incredible fight lasting about 25 minutes and did a few amazing jumps, dancing across the top of the water for 20 feet at a time. We eventually brought the fish to the boat and it was an impressive 7 feet, 3 inches long! (I’m on the left in the picture)There were high fives all around. I’m having it replica-mounted, and it will be a long overdue addition to my present collection. A few moments later we were on another large sail which my wife fought for 20 minutes (we have some incredible footage of jumps on my GoPro) and got just outside the reach of the leader when it unfortunately pulled the circle hook. She was tired and a bit sore after, so when a third sailfish was hooked, I fought this one all the way to the leader too! Later in that day we hit a school of Mahi-Mahi which devoured all the baits in the water in seconds…another rush and it also provided some supper as well. Lady Pamela II was one of the most comfortable boats I’ve fished on, and definitely was family friendly with a clean and spacious restroom as well. David and his crew were professional and courteous and I would have no hesitation recommending them for a family outing, or to experienced deep sea fishermen like us. The trip was a magical memory that we will never forget. Thanks David!
