Fishing Fort Lauderdale Family Style

Today we enjoyed the company of Rodney and his friends from Alabama aboard the Lady Pamela II. This was an afternoon charter, so from 1 to 5 pm we were able to troll around a little bit and catch some kingfish. We also put out the kites trying to catch a sailfish but didn’t get any bites. We did catch about a 6 foot Silky shark though, and as the Alabama crew were reeling him in a massive tiger shark came and took a big bite out of it! JJ quickly grabbed a 130 lb rod and put a three hook shark rig back out. We were hoping to get another bite and sure enough the big tiger shark came up nad took another bite! Unfortunately he didn’t grab any of the hooks, and swam off into the deep.


The morning driftfishing trips aboard the Lady Pamela III over the past few days have down south of Port Everglades inlet. We have been fishing anywhere from 60 to 80 feet of water and catching lots of flag yellowtail snappers. We have been averaging about 15 tails per trip along with a few king mackerel. We are always catching triggerfish and grunts.

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.
