FT Lauderdale Fishing LADY PAMELA 2

Today Captain JJ and I handled a 1p.m. – 5p.m. trip out of Fort Lauderdale. We trolled for the first 2 hours, missed a few bites and landed no fish. We pride ourselves on putting fish in the boat, and this wasn’t working, so, with five anglers onboard we had to make a positive move. We reeled in the trolling gear and rigged up some live bait for shipwreck fishing, hoping for an amberjack or big grouper. Again, no bites! We then tried some snapper fishing on the wrecks in 200-315 feet of water. No bites again! It was tough fishing, so we went north and offshore into 450 feet of water where tilefish are sometimes found. Finally, during the last hour of the trip we found the bite and ended up catching 16 nice size tilefish. These Atlantic tilefish are some of the best eating fish in the world. We gave it our best and eventually we were able to bring home the dinner!

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.
