Ft Lauderdale Driftfishing

The last few months the snapper trips have been unbelievable and tonight’s trip was no exception. Captain Adam was at the helm for the Saturday night snapper trip. We left the dock around 7 p.m. for the four hour charter with six anglers, including Roscoe and Pat. I have to tell you, these six anglers went to town on the snappers. We anchored the Lady Pamela III between 50 and 80 feet water and once a little chum was in the water the yellowtail and mangrove snapper bite went crazy! The red hot action yielded 120 snappers for what was a great nighttime fishing trip. Our anglers all got their limits on snapper, with many more being released.

Today Mike and I had a four hour trip with Steve from the Florida Keys. He fished Fort Lauderdale on another charter boat last year and did not catch much, so we were hoping to change that for him. We started the morning trolling between 100 and 750 feet of water, and in about 450 feet of water we hooked a nice sized sailfish. It was only a two minute fight though, as he threw the hook.

We kept on trolling for another two and half hours catching three nice mahi-mahi and two Atlantic bonitos. Toward the end of the tip we trolled on in to 160 feet of water and switched to kite fishing with live baits hoping for a sailfish or a shark. Ten minutes before we were going to reel in the baits I saw a sailfish swim up to the left short kite bait. Mike quickly hooked the sailfish and Steve jumped into the fighting chair for the highlight catch of the day. This fish jumped all over the place right next to the boat, but didn’t make any big runs. He sure put on a spectacular display; just the thing to show Steve what Fort Lauderdale fishing is really like!

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.
