Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report March 2011

Chris and his buddies joined the Lady Pamela II for a full day of fishing offshore Fort Lauderdale. It was flat calm offshore; with a SE wind blowing 5-10 mph. We left the dock at 8 AM with trolling gear in the water. For the first 6 hours of the fishing trip, we caught fish non-stop; Mahi-Mahi, Kingfish, Bonito, Blackfin Tuna. We ended the day with two nice size Barracudas caught at one of the many shipwrecks here in Fort Lauderdale.

Greg, Jeff, Amanda and two other friends joined the Lady Pamela IV for a fishing trip today. We left the dock at 8:10 AM and headed across the Intracoastal to pick up live goggle eyes. Once we had our bait covered, we were on our way and I headed south out of Port Everglades. It was blowing out of the NW. We flew the kites in 90 ft of water with 2 knot north current with bright blue water. Just as we were getting the second kite out, there were two Sailfish already in our spread. Captain Paul hooked the Sailfish that ate that short bait and handed it off to Greg and then began to work the second Sailfish. It didn’t take long for Captain Paul to hook the second Sailfish and hand it to Jeff. Jeff’s fish didn’t cooperate and fell off while Greg’s fish put up a battle. I was backing down in 8 ft swells for 20 minutes before we got Greg’s fish to the boat. After Greg’s catch, they called it a day and we were back at the dock by 9:30AM.  

Pictures to come.

Tight Lines!

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.
