Fishing Fort Lauderdale

The last three days the weather has been mild, with temperatures in the low 60’s, and moderate winds out of the northeast. The bit of chop and swell resulting from the northeast wind has produced some great fishing. We have caught a few sailfish trolling on fresh mullet strips, prepared from some of the mullet we’ve netted as they move down the beach. The mahi-mahi have been abundant out in 600-800 feet of water. On the 15th we found the remnants of a cuban raft floating offshore that had a nice school of dolphin swimming underneath. The next day we found a 55 gallon drum floating offshore and it too was loaded with mahi-mahi, up to 10 lbs. We are always on the lookout for floating debris as it invariably attracts tripletail, mahi-mahi and wahoo. No wahoo were landed from around the raft or drum, but we landed three nice fish while trolling live bonito around from 150 to 300 feet of water.


The Friday night driftfishing off Fort Lauderdale turned into another snapper fest, as our anglers landed 50 snappers, including yellowtail, lanes and mangroves. They also hooked up 60 blue runners, a barracuda, and a small shark. That’s over 100 fish in one four hour trip! Fort Lauderdale fishing sure is exceptional this time of year and the Lady Pamela Sportfishing fleet is making the most of these great fishing opportunities.

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!
