Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report

July 15, 2013

The past few days the Lady Pamela II fleet has been bottom fishing on the deep reefs and shipwrecks off Ft. Lauderdale. The grouper fishing has been particularly good, with lots of Warsaw and goliath groupers bending the rods. We are also seeing a few blacks, gags and snowy groupers in the mix. The wreckfishing off Ft. Lauderdale really is fun, check it out!

Today Adam and I took Scott and Chuck from North Carolina out into what was one hellacious weather day. We battled ten foot seas and rain all day, but the fishing was awesome! Scott and Chuck caught three barracudas, four bonitos, two mahi-mahi, one big kingfish, six blackfin tunas, a small yellowfin tuna, and a remora. They also hooked up but lost a big warsaw grouper during a fishing trip that they will not soon forget!

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.
