Determination wins BIG Shark

February 4, 2014

January 28, 2014

Rosie and her son Teddy from New Jersey came out fishing on Lady Pamela II with Captain Darin. The crew got warmed up by trolling up a couple of Blackfin tunas and a king mackerel. Teddy was now ready to catch a big shark as he had never caught one before. Darin went out to 350 feet of water and set up in one of our go-to shark spots. Unfortunately, in three hours of shark fishing we never had a bite. Our go-to spot was no-go spot today! Darin was determined to get Teddy a shark so with 30 minutes left in the charter he ran inshore close to one of the channel buoys, hoping to get a bite. Just before lines up Teddy got the bite and he hooked a monster Nurse shark. This was a big fish that topped out at 8 1/2 feet long. Good job Teddy!

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.
