Fishing Ft Lauderdale

October 30, 2012


First and foremost, our thoughts are with all of our fishing friends in Delaware, New Jersey, New York and elsewhere who have been affected by hurricane Sandy. We had high seas from the storm and couldn’t fish, but we had no other effects. That being said, the post-storm fishing the last few days has been very good. The sailfish were biting today up to the north and one of our boats had ten plus shots at sailfish using live googleyes suspended from kites. We are now moving into the prime time of year (November to April) to catch a billfish. If you like to billfish now is a great time to book a trip. We have also been catching plenty of mahi-mahi, kingfish, and wahoo.

If you are interested in game sharks, we love to move out into deep water and hunt for hammerheads, makos, threshers, or bull sharks. There is nothing like a fresh bonito or small kingfish dropped down to 350 feet to raise some exciting shark action.


The Lady Pamela driftfishing boat has also been catching plenty of fish, using fresh ballyhoo during the daytime and squid and fresh kingfish belly at night. The night fishing in particular has been producing lots of yellow tail and mangrove snappers, as well a few nice mutton snappers. During the daytime fishing we have been landing kingfish, snappers, triggerfish, cobia and bonito. There is always something to catch here in south Florida!

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.
