Fishing in Fort Lauderdale – Tim & his girls catch nice size Mahi – Mahi & 4 Sailfish bites!

January 12th, 2011

Today, Tim went fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV with his four daughters and his wife, talk about being out numbered. Tim was smart; he told his gang they were going for an Intracoastal cruise. Once he had all aboard, Tim told Captain Paul and Leo they were going fishing and don’t tell the girls. Before they headed offshore, they picked up live goggle eyes for live bait kite fishing. Captain Paul led the Lady Pamela IV to 120 ft of water, where a light N wind was present, blowing about 8 – 15 mph. The kites went up and they were ready to roll. Three Sailfish came into our spread, but got away. In the mist of all the Sailfish action, Leo hooked a nice size Mahi – Mahi and a hefty King Mackerel. Tim was licking his lips, the girls on the other hand wanted to see the homes of the rich and famous. Just before it was time to go back to the dock, a Sailfish ate and Tim caught it.

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.
