Darrin and I headed out today in the Lady Pamela II for a six hour fishing trip with Bill and his family from Ohio. The goal for today was for Bill, his son, and son-in-law to catch a billfish. We picked up some live goggleyes at Fort Lauderdale Marina and headed out of Port Everglades inlet. The wind was out of the southeast along with a smoking south current running about 3 knots. We put out the kites with live goggleyes in about 250 feet of water, and put one big shark bait on the bottom. It was a long two hours before we got the first bite, but it was giant seven and half foot Atlantic sailfish that took nearly 40 minutes to get behind the boat. This was a spectacular catch and we got some great pictures before releasing the fish and putting the baits back out.

The wind had moved the Pamela in to 130 feet of water but there were fish here too. We caught a couple of mahi-mahi and a king mackerel on the kites. Then, in the last hour of the trip we hooked up another sailfish. Bill and his family from Ohio got what they were angling for and then some! Sailfish, mahi, and king mackerel on the hook sure made for a fun day.

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.
