FISHING HERE IN SUNNY SOUTH FLORIDA - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Fishing has been quite good everywhere this week, from the reefs to offshore. The Lady Pamela III driftboat really had a nice catch of snappers today, including both vermilions and yellowtails. The sailfish have been hot on the kites all week as the Lady Pamela II went 2 for 4 on sailfish using live goggle eyes. Blackfin have been the big catch on the troll, and we also caught and released a couple of nice hammerheads out in 350 feet of water off Ft. Lauderdale.

The snapper fishing was hot again today on both the reef and in deeper water on some wrecks. The driftboat brought in another bunch vermilion and yellowtail snappers, as well as a couple of kingfish. Another one of the other Lady Pamela boats worked some wrecks offshore, landing a box load of yellow eye snappers, black snappers, and a couple of 20 lb. plus snowy groupers. A cold front is headed our way today so the fishing should continue to be good through the weekend, and into next week.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
