Driftfishing Report Fort Lauderdale

October 2, 2013

Today I ran the Lady Pamela II for a four hour charter. It was a mixed bag of fishing today, with a little bit of trolling along with some bottom fishing. We got four bonitos and a skipjack tuna on the troll. We then went deep for some snappers, bringing n a few vermilions and some yelloweyes.


The nighttime snapper fishing has been great. Since school is back in session, and Friday night football is going on, there has been plenty of room aboard the Lady Pamela III for nighttime snapper fishing. The Friday and Saturday night trips have seen plenty of yellowtail, mutton snappers and a few groupers making it into the boat. During the daytime it has been a mixed bag of kingfish, red groupers, gray triggers, mutton snappers, porgys and grunts. The weather has finally started to cool off a bit which sure makes fishing more pleasant! Give us a call!

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.
