Fishing in Fort Lauderdale with Michael and his family

Michael and his family joined the Lady Pamela IV for a deep sea fishing adventure while visiting Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Once we hit open water, we were catching King Mackerel in 140 ft of water. We caught a handful of Kingfish and went on our way to 220 ft of water. The kites went into the air with live goggle eyes as three baits went underneath the water. It wasn’t long before we had a window shopper. The Sailfish swam into our spread, took a look at our bait and swam away. Not even 25 minutes later and one of our bottom baits got a hit. I pushed the boat ahead as Kevin set the hook and it was on – game time. Michael was strapped in and ready to catch this monster fish.  Michael fought his huge Hammerhead Shark all the way to the boat. The fish was just shy of 8 ft long.

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!
