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.

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.
