What is the difference between Sportfishing and Drift Fishing?

  • Drift fishing is done 100% on our large party boat the Lois Ann. This is a shared charter with up to 60 people that goes out daily at 8am, 1pm and 7pm. On this boat everything is provided including captain, mate and all the tackle.  The boat features full air-conditioning, bathroom and large cockpit with plenty of room for everyone. We fish inshore on the reef for smaller fish such as snapper, grouper, king mackerel and sharks. It is up to you to hook the fish. This trip is $45/person.  More info…
  • Sportfishing is a more private hands-on experience done on our bigger sport fish boats in which we target the largest big game fish of South Florida and some of the world.  Our sporfish boats generally fish up to 6 people with our larger boat fishes up to 22.  You can take it as private charter (recommended) or shared charter if there is only you or a couple of your friends. This trip you have a much better opportunity to catch large game fish such as mahimahi, sailfish, tuna, wahoo, white marlin, sharks and much more.   More Info…

Are there any age requirements?
There are no age requirements.  All ages and skill levels are welcome.

Do I need any fishing experience? 
No, we have all the experience that is needed. We love teaching others about our sport and coaching you through it all. We have many people who have never fished a day in their life, but leave with a new understanding and a unforgettable experience.

What is commonly caught on board?
Fishing always varies from season to season. I have a fishing report link on the homepage, that I update weekly. To see the latest news on what’s biting and what you would most likely be catching at that time, check it out.  For big game fishing, be sure to check out our shared sportfishing and private sportfishing charters.

Is the fish edible?
Some of the fish you are likely to catch is edible, and is yours to keep. Generally, if the fish is not edible, we release it, or use it for bait.

Do you accommodate persons in a wheelchair?
Absolutely. Our boats have a flat deck in the back that allows for easy wheelchair access and ability to fight fish. Our crew will help you get on and off the boat.

What if I catch a really big fish?
We have a great local taxidermist here in town, and they do fantastic work. If you catch a big one, tell your mate you want to mount it, and they will be happy to help you set everything up with the taxidermist.

TESTIMONIALS

Rough seas yield sailfish bonanza!

My wife and I arrived late on November 19th, as our taxi driver took us on a unscheduled (you know what I mean) tour. Captain David calmly assured me that we would still make out fine, and in fact the rough seas that day were actually a good sign and improved our chances of a sailfish strike. We stopped to pick up some of the best bait available which they call google-eyes (small extra cost, highly recommended). They fish sailfish with kites in south Florida if weather permits. I’ve fished with a kites before, but not in the same manner as the crew of the Lady Pamela II. This windy day they flew two kites with multiple baits on each. It was truly a sight to see and they explained everything as they were going, so it was very interesting and educational too. It wasn’t long before one of the orange floats was zig-zagging across the water and the mate grabbed the rod and free spooled for a few moments before gradually pushing the drag up to strike. Just as he did this, the orange ball seemingly flew horizontally across the top of the water at an amazing speed (I swear as fast as a car) for about 100 yards…the sail was hooked and the rush was exhilarating! I took the rod and began fighting the fish just as I heard the captain and mate discussing that this was a very large sailfish…smiles were all around the boat. The fish put on an incredible fight lasting about 25 minutes and did a few amazing jumps, dancing across the top of the water for 20 feet at a time. We eventually brought the fish to the boat and it was an impressive 7 feet, 3 inches long! (I’m on the left in the picture)There were high fives all around. I’m having it replica-mounted, and it will be a long overdue addition to my present collection. A few moments later we were on another large sail which my wife fought for 20 minutes (we have some incredible footage of jumps on my GoPro) and got just outside the reach of the leader when it unfortunately pulled the circle hook. She was tired and a bit sore after, so when a third sailfish was hooked, I fought this one all the way to the leader too! Later in that day we hit a school of Mahi-Mahi which devoured all the baits in the water in seconds…another rush and it also provided some supper as well. Lady Pamela II was one of the most comfortable boats I’ve fished on, and definitely was family friendly with a clean and spacious restroom as well. David and his crew were professional and courteous and I would have no hesitation recommending them for a family outing, or to experienced deep sea fishermen like us. The trip was a magical memory that we will never forget. Thanks David!
