Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing – BIG Bite Offshore

February 16, 2011

February 11th, 2011

Jessica and Mike from Massachusetts joined Mike, a Fort Lauderdale local, aboard the Lady Pamela for a deep sea fishing charter. We began trolling fresh Bonito strips to the south in 80 ft of water and moved into 130 ft of water. The pink/white and milar seawitches produced a few 5-10 lb King Mackerel fish in 90 ft of water. After we caught a couple of Kingfish, we put live Bonito fish on the troll in 85-115 ft of water. Within minutes, we were hooked and the bite was big. Too bad it didn’t hang on tight. Twenty minutes into Josh’s battle, the fish managed to pull the hook and release itself. Jessica’s bait got eaten shortly after our loss and she won the fight with a nice size Barracuda. Two more baits went in the water and before we knew it, a double header bite. Josh and Mike were back in the game. Mike’s fish pulled the hook as Josh’s fish continued to fight. Josh ended the day with a 25 lb Barracuda that put up one brutal fight.

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.
