Today  Lamar Scott and bob came fishing aboard the lady Pamela IV. We stared the trip out trolling using fresh Bonita strips and new sea witches with a 80 foot leader the fishing was great. The first few fish were 15-20 lb kingfish Scott and Lamar both caught the first two our next couple of bites where black fin tunas around the 5- 8 lb range in 200 feet of water is where we are catching the black fin tunas . Next all of a sudden a nice sailfish on the right long rigger I was in the cockpit and I told paul to put the boat in a turn well I feed the fish now I yell I’ve got him and it was jumping all over the ocean it makes one great trip if you catch Atlantic sailfish.

Today ran the boat and Paul was in the cockpit working hard as normal. We were on a big convention and the group we had only wanted to catch big sharks so we spent the whole trip using 200 lb test 130 penn reels and big kingfish head on the bottom four rods it took a few hours but once we got the bite the fight was on. It took a good 30 min and we had a rare Cuban night shark.  The first one I had ever caught in the daytime it was a great trip.

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.
