Deep Sea Fishing Fort Lauderdale - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Deep Sea Fishing Fort Lauderdale

The Lady Pamela II sportfishing boat had a great four hour afternoon charter with five guys from Toronto, Canada. I ran the boat while JJ kept the baits fresh in the cockpit. We trolled the reef for a little bit catching a few kingfish. Some were keepers, though a couple of fish were short that we threw back. Our guys from Canada were now primed for sharkfishing. JJ put out some nice bloody baits and within 30 minutes we had a bite. The fight was on, and then it was off, as the fish threw the hook. JJ re-rigged with fresh baits and 40 minutes later the big one was hooked good. The fish was a massive giant scalloped hammerhead that the Canadians fought for 2 1/2 hours before landing it. We got a great bunch of pictures and released it.

On both Friday and Saturday night we had driftfishing trips aboard the Lady Pamela II that were spectacular. On Friday night our anglers caught 100 fish, mostly snappers, and Saturday night they landed another 70 snappers. We sure had a lot of filleting to do this weekend!

Mike captained the Pamela on Monday and the good bottomfishing continued. Our ambitious anglers brought in a bunch of big yellowtails. The crew also landed some big triggerfish, a few grunts, and even a couple Vermillion snapper. Good job!

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.
