Come Catch a Sailfish

February 2, 2015

January 28 & 29, 2015


These past couple days we have had great fish sailfishing weather off of Fort Lauderdale. Several cold fronts came through this last week and the fishing turned red hot. A couple boats had up to 20 sailfish bites in one day. On Wednesday the Lady Pamela II caught two sailfish in the morning, and in the afternoon caught an Atlantic sharpnose shark and a silky shark.

Nice Sailfish

We haven’t done much trolling this week because the kitefishing for sails has been so productive. Live baiting with goggleyes is the best way to target sails while kitefishing. Live goggleyes run $100 and more per dozen, and are not included in a basic charter fare, so be prepared to spend a little extra. There are no refunds for unused baits, but in my view they are still worth it, as sails cannot resist these baits.

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!
