Fort Lauderdale Fishing Forecast for December


December 1, 2014


I am excited that December and cooler weather is finally here so we can get going on the sailfish. This time last year it seemed like we were hooking up at least two sails on every trip. The real challenge is the weather, as the seas will kick up as each new cold front moves through the South Florida area. The good news is that the Lady Pamela II sportfishing boats can easily handle a little bit of choppy water, and it’s the disturbed seas that really get the sailfish hot to bite. Along with sailfish, I expect to see a little bit of everything off of Ft. Lauderdale this month. There should be plenty of kingfish, bonitos, and blackfin tunas around, and the winter wahoo bite should kick off here in the next few weeks.

13 sails ans 1 Blue Marlin

The Lady Pamela III driftfishing boat has been bringing in a mixed bag of snappers along with some nice red and black groupers. Mangrove snappers should be particularly plentiful this month. Our four hour driftfishing trips are only $45 per person and are a great way to get out fishing on a budget.

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.
