Swordfishing Report – Saturday Night Swordfishing Trip aboard the Lady Pamela III

Every Saturday night we run the Drift Fishing – Saturday Night Swordfishing Trip for $200 per person aboard the Lady Pamela III. We like to leave the dock at 6 PM sharp to ensure we are situated by sundown. Tonight, the rain caused us to leave at 7:30, but no biggie. Thanks to the flat calm seas, we ran 38 MPH all the way to Swordfish grounds; it made for a very comfortable ride for Andy, John, Sam and Anna. Once we reached our destination of 20 miles offshore Fort Lauderdale in the Gulfstream, we set up 2 recreational buoys and 5 rods with 130 International reels. Our first drift didn’t produce any bites. The current was rippin’ at 3.8 MPH so we packed up and moved 7 miles to the south. No nibbles there either. At 1 AM we were supposed to head back to the dock but Andy and I wanted to make another drift and try one last time. It was well worth it. At 3 AM we were pulling our gear and our last buoy was tight with a large Swordfish. We told John to put on the gloves; he was hand lining this one to the boat. He laughed. It took Tim 45 minutes to get the Swordfish to the boat. Andy threw the Harpoon and we called it a night. The Swordfish weighed in at 200 lb’s, 115″ overall length, 73″ short.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
