Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing – BIG Wahoo fish!

September 20, 2010

Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing September 17th, 2010

Today, Emmit and his family came sport fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II with Richard and I. Fishing started extremely slow. We trolled seawitches and mullet strips for about an hour, and all we got was a 5lb Barracuda. After we expertly released the Barracuda fish, we got a big bite in 480 ft of water. Richard (the mate) backed the drag off on the reel as Jessica stepped up to the plate to fight the fish. Richard got the leader and shortly after, I saw the 30lb+ Wahoo fish. Jessica fought the fish all the way to the transom, I gaffed it and he went into the fish box. What a beautiful fish! We didn’t let the grass grow under our feet; trolling gear went right back in the water. A few more Barracudas ate along with some tasty Blackfin Tuna and a couple of Bonito fish.

Another great day of fishing in Fort Lauderdale!

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.
