Fishing Florida In the Summer

May 21, 2013

May 4, 2013

The weekend fishing off Ft. Lauderdale turned out as predicted with both the Lady Pamela IV and Lady Pamela III producing some good catches. The LP IV, with Captain Darin at the helm, spent Saturday morning trolling the reef edge, from 90 to 120 feet of water. Seawitch feathers, tipped with bonito strips, and trolled behind planers, were irresistible to both kingfish and bonito. Our anglers were busy with multiple hookups and landings.

The LP III was out both in the morning and the afternoon and also caught a few kings and some bonito during both trips. In the afternoon they also caught a couple of 60 lb. plus amberjacks that put a big bend in the rods and some aches in our fishermen’s arms.

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.
