Sailfish Fishing in September

Today, Paul from Massachusetts came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela II from 8 AM – 12 PM. Paul has caught 1,100 lb Bluefin Tuna but never a Sailfish, and today conditions were perfect to hook up with a Sailfish! Before we left the dock, Paul decided to buy live goggle eyes for live bait kite fishing. Once we reached 140 ft of water, I released the kites into the air with live goggle eyes dangling on the surface. The King Mackerel were first to show up and shortly after Paul caught his first Barracuda. Around 10 AM, a Sailfish was on the left long and Paul was in the fighting chair. This fish put on a great show for Paul, jumping all over the place within feet of the boat. We expertly tagged and released the 84″ Atlantic Sailfish caught offshore Fort Lauderdale.

TESTIMONIALS

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.
