Fort Lauderdale Fishing during the Holiday Season

December 21st, 2010

Today, Patrick, Amy and Amy’s parents joined Captain Paul and I for a deep sea fishing trip aboard the Lady Pamela IV. We left Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Resort and Marina and began trolling seawitches and planners from the south as we made our way north. The King Mackerel fish kept us busy for over 2 hours. After enough trolling, we rigged up the live goggle eyes and pulled them from the out riggers. Usually, we would live bait kite fish but without the right amount of wind, it is nearly impossible. Plan B worked. It wasn’t 15 minutes before we got a bite and missed our first Sailfish of the day. Captain Paul re-baited as I kept the boat moving in 110 – 165 ft of water. One hour before it was time to head back to the dock, we got a double header Sailfish bite. Patrick and Fred had a tough time during the fight but they got the job done.

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!
