Fort Lauderdale Fishing during the Holiday Season

December 25, 2010

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.

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.
