Fort Lauderdale Fishing

August 18, 2012

August 16, 2012 Thursday

The Ft. Lauderdale weather has been spectacular all week, with clear skies and calm seas. The Lady Pamela sportfishing fleet has been working the reef edges from 100 to 250 feet, trolling for kingfish and bonito. The catches have been steady, and since we have the closest charter boats to the inlet, we can get to the bite before everyone else.

The nighttime driftfishing is producing good catches of yellowtail and mutton snappers. The calm seas and the cooler temperatures at night make this type of fishing an attractive option during the summer.

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.
