Fishing Fort Lauderdale Lady Pamela 2

January 17, 2012

Today, the Hyatt family from Pennsylvania joined us for an afternoon of fishing. They had just flown in this morning and said it was 20 degrees where they just came from and were loving the 65 degrees here in Ft. Lauderdale. The Hyatts had never been deep sea fishing before so they decided they would try their luck deep sea fishing on the Lady Pamela II.

 We left the dock around 2:00 pm and went right to an anchored freighter where we had previously caught tinker mackerels. After filling our live baitwell full of these prime but rarely seen baits, we went straight to kite fishing in about 200 feet of water as I had heard that a few sailfish were seen at this depth. Within an hour of getting all six lines set out we hooked a sailfish. This was one of the toughest sailfish I have ever caught. Andrew fought this fish for  an hour and half, as it took us out to 700 feet water where the seas were huge. We finally tagged and released this bad boy sailfish though!


After the big battle we ran back inshore to a few shipwrecks trying to get a bite with our remaining live baits. We got a few bites from amberjacks, but none stayed on the hook. That’s the way it goes sometimes. Wreckfishing with live baits is generally very productive though, with amberjacks, groupers, cobias, and big snappers always a possible catch.

Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
