Fort Lauderdale Wreck Fishing in December aboard the Lady Pamela

December 4, 2010

December 1st, 2010

This afternoon, we had six anglers on a sport fishing charter aboard the Lady Pamela. We left the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six Resort and Spa at 1 PM and headed offshore. A cold front moved in and we all know what that means; great fishing in Fort Lauderdale. The bonito fish were cooperating nicely for us. We caught enough and put them away for later use on the shipwrecks. Shortly after we boated our bonito fish, we began trolling two planners with seawitches and mullet strips along with four top baits in 100 – 250 ft of water. We caught one Kingfish as we trolled the reef making our way to the Bill Boyds wreck. We dropped a live bonito fish on the shipwreck in 260 ft of water. It didn’t take long before David was hooked up with an 80lb rod and reel and a big fish on the other end. David ended the day catching a Greater Amberjack in Fort Lauderdale. The bite slowed down right after.

Pictures to come.

Tight Lines!

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!
