Fort Lauderdale Sailfish Fishing – SOLID bite!

January 17, 2011

January 14th, 2010

Today, David from Wyoming and Kenneth from Nebraska came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV with Captain Paul and myself. We stopped for live goggle eyes before our 6-hour adventure offshore began. I was in the tower riding the edge when I saw the first Sailfish of the day. I slowed the boat down and we put the kites up immediately. Kenneth hooked Sailfish #1 and won the battle in the fighting chair. The fish wasn’t cooperating easily, but we did manage to get great pictures. David was ready for round two; it was his turn to land a Sailfish. We relocated and set up the kites off the bow of an anchored ship. The bite was nearly instant. Captain Paul cleared the cockpit as David geared up. David’s Sailfish put up a 25-minute fight and we were able to tag and release. We finished off the fishing trip catching two Bonito fish on the troll. Live bait was the way to go today.

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.
