Fort Lauderdale Shark Fishing; Big Bull Shark puts up a wicked fight!

Sport Fishing Report – Fort Lauderdale, Florida

July 6th, 2010

This afternoon, the Lady Pamela II left the dock for a 1 PM start. For the first two hours of fishing, we trolled around offshore looking for some fish. The customers got sea sick so we headed inshore but didn’t want to cut them short of fishing. On our way in, we tried a spot that locals refer to as the ledge. We dropped two big bluerunner baits down and it didn’t take long to attract a visitor. A big Bull Shark rolled on our bait and Mike set the hook to get him on there. We fought the Bull Shark for 30 minutes and cured all sea sickness!

Fort Lauderdale Shark Fishing, Bull Shark!

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.
