DRIFT FISHING Fort Lauderdale

February 8, 2013

February 6, 2013

Hump day Wednesday was a prime fishing day for Lady Pamela II sportfishing. We trolled the reef edge for awhile, bagging a few kingfish and some bonitos. Then it was out into 350 feet of water where we did some deep-dropping. The tilefish bite was still on and our anglers boated 30 nice fish. To top things off we hooked into a big shark that gave our guys a workout. Just as it was getting close enough to the boat to identify, the fish came free and was gone. It turns out the brute actually broke the hook. That’s fishing!

The Lady Pamela III driftboat also had some good fishing, bringing in a nice mix of yellowtail and mangrove snappers, and lots of porgys while bottomfishing. A few surface predators got in on the action as well, with a couple of our anglers landing a kingfish and a blackfin tuna.

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.
