February 2016 Fishing Forecast


Sailfish, sharks, wahoo, and kingfish are on the fishing menu for February. Kitefishing with live goggle eyes off Ft. Lauderdale and Hollywood is the go to method of fishing for sailfish this time of year. Multiple hookups seem to be the norm, with other predators like kingfish and mahi-mahi competing for the baits. If sharks are your passion then February is a good month. This time last year Lady Pamela sportfishing caught hammerheads, silkys, and a couple of big tiger sharks during the month. There were not so many wahoo around last month but an arctic blast of cold air is expected later this week that should kick off a wahoo bite. Kingfish are abundant right now, and we are catching them on the troll around the reefs. So, did I wet your appetite for some rod bending? 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.
