Driftfishing fort lauderdale Lady Pamela 3 may 31

June 2, 2011

Chuck and family from a small “HOME TOWN” of Mitchell, South Dakota came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela 3 on our daily drift fishing trip yesterday. The fishing was excellent the boat caught some big trigger fish, a few 8-12 pound bonitos and a big kingfish. At the last moment of the trip, we had to reel in and head back home. Right at this time Chuck hooked in to a monster fish. He fought the fish for a while and when it came up to the surface, Joe, the first mate on the boat shouted, monster kingfish. The deckhands rushed to grab the bigger gaff and ran to the corner of the boat to gaff the king. Good job Chuck on catching the biggest fish of the trip, a 30 king fish. May is a good month for catching a wide variety of bottom fish and surface feeders on the drift boat. On the Drift fishing we are also catching kingfish, mutton snappers, yellowtail snappers, grouper, bonito and black fin tunas. There is some good deep sea fishing out there these days

Thanks for the great fishing experience. May 2011 to see Mike Miller of The Heat, take in a couple of great basketball games and do some fishing. Mike Miller is from our small “hometown” of Mitchell, SD pop. 14,500. As you can see from my pictures that our prize fish was the 51″ King that I caught, as well as some other fine catches by my brother Mike, my dad Chuck Sr. and Uncle Tony. Thanks again!

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.
