Fishing Fort Lauderdale Lady Pamela 2 March 27

The seas were flat and calm as we left Ft. Lauderdale this morning with a full boat. For the first few hours we trolled using sea witches and fresh-cut bonito strips. A nice 8-lb. blackfin tuna and some kings of about 5-10 lbs. were caught before we moved on. Using a live blue runner for bait we dropped on a wreck inabout 100 feet and hooked up an abaco jack. The weather picked up in the afternoon with 20-kt. winds and seas of 4-feet so we called it a day.

The fisherman sharing our boat this morning also shared the thrill of catching a 6 1/2 foot sailfish! We were on the troll using a pink and white sea witch and fresh-cut bonito strips when the fish hit. After a 25-30 minute fight the fish was close enough to the boat to attach a tag and safely release it, The rain came and went and we ended up catching 4 kings on planers in about 60-100 feet of water.

The afternoon was sunny again as we left the dock with Sean from Illinois. A couple of nice kings of about 8-10 lbs. were caught trolling. The conditions were good for kite fishing and up they went. We were in 150 feet of water right out from Port Everglades using kingfish as bait and a Penn International 130 reel. Our reward was a magnificent 8-foot Great Hammerhead shark! Another fantastic day fishing out of Ft. Lauderdale.

Tight Lines.

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.
