Fort Lauderdale Fishing – 2 Sailfish & Hammerhead Shark

Fort Lauderdale Fishing

October 27th, 2010

Around 1PM, the Lady Pamela II and III set sail out of Fort Lauderdale. Aboard the Lady Pamela II, we had a boat show repeat client interested in hooking up with a Hammerhead Shark. Shark fishing takes place in the spring here in Fort Lauderdale but you never know what you’re going to catch while deep sea fishing in South Florida. We trolled the reef in search of Mahi Mahi and King Mackerel for 2 hours without a bite. We decided it was time to move on and try our luck with a bloody King Mackerel while the Lady Pamela III was live bait kite fishing on an edge north of Port Everglades in 460 ft of water. Adam hooked a Sailfish and a 7lb Mahi aboard the Lady Pamela III just before we got the bite. I floored the boat ahead as Patrick jumped into the fighting chair. After a tough 30 minute battle, Patrick got a good look at his Hammerhead Shark he always wanted to catch while fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I called Adam shortly after our catch and release and he had not only 1 but 2 Sailfish behind the boat, both over 5 ft in length.

Great fishing in Fort Lauderdale.

Pictures to come.

Tight Lines!

Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
