White Marlin caught in Fort Lauderdale aboard the Lady Pamela

Today we had four guys on a split fishing charter. We purchased live goggle eyes before heading offshore in 6-8 ft seas blowing out of the NE with a south current. The King Mackerel, Bonito and Mahi – Mahi fish didn’t take long to show up. An hour and half into the trip and we were out of bait. Our customers wanted to head back to the dock, so as we made our way back inshore, Justin put a ballyhoo bait out. As he was letting it out, a monster fish ate. Don jumped into the fighting chair with no hesitation and went straight to work. We thought maybe a small Blue Marlin ate, or a big Sailfish or maybe even a White Marlin was on the other end on the line. It was a brutal 30 minute battle before we got the 90 lb White Marlin to the boat. This is the time of year when you may spot a few White Marlin while fishing offshore in Fort Lauderdale. Way to go, Don.

Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
