Fishing in Fort Lauderdale with Michael and his family

January 8, 2011

January 7th, 2010

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.

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.
