Chris Pronger of the Philadelphia Flyers fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV

February 12, 2011

Chris Pronger of the Philadelphia Flyers came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV two days in a row and had great success fishing offshore in Fort Lauderdale. The first day of fishing was great. The bite wasn’t instant, but everyone’s patience paid off. We didn’t get a bite for almost 3 hours and then at the very last minute, we hooked a huge Sailfish. Chris reeled in a 70 lb Atlantic Sailfish and then booked a fishing trip for the next morning because he had such a good time fishing. The next day we left the dock at 8 AM and headed offshore to try our luck Big Game Shark Fishing. We put our all of the 130 reels out with big 5lb King Mackerel bait on the end. The bait sat in 350 ft of water for almost 3 hours before we decided to make a move into shallower water. Shortly after we relocated, we got a big bite. Chris fought a Sicklefin, Greater Hammerhead all the way to the transom. We look forward to fishing with you again, Chris!

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.
