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 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!
