Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report Feb 26

February 26, 2013

Michelle and friends from Miami had some great fun with Captain David yesterday afternoon. After loading up with some goggleyes, the Lady Pamela II motored out to 180 feet of water where they set out the kites. There was nice blue water and the north running current was still moving quick so it wasn’t long before the first sailfish showed up. The action on this first fish was pretty good, then a second bait got popped and the group hooked up to another sailfish! The crew got these Three fish to the boat and after pictures and high-fives the fish were released. The mate reset all the lines and 30 minutes later another sailfish had hit the baits. This fish put on a nice acrobatic display before the angler brought it to the boat.


To round out the trip Captain David decided to drop a few baits on a wreck in 260 feet of water. This wreck produces nice sized fish if they are biting. Well today they were biting as the rod started jerking. The battle was on and our anglers muscled in a 60 lb Warsaw grouper. These are very aggressive fish and they put up a heck of a fight. Just another great fishing day here in Ft. Lauderdale.

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!
