FORT LAUDERDALE FISHING CHARTERS
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!
