Full Moon Fishing Off Fort Lauderdale

February 28, 2016

February 25, 2016


We have had a full moon this week and it has brought primo wahoo action. Lady Pamela II has boated fish from 35 to 60 lbs. caught on the troll between 60 and 120 feet of water over the past several days. These fish are cruising everywhere: off the reef edge, on the reef, even inside the reef off Ft. Lauderdale. The bottom line is there have been a lot of wahoos around this week! The other big news is the mutton snapper on offshore wrecks. We have been boating fish as big 20 lbs. on live pilchards and even cut bait. It is pretty exciting to see the size and numbers of muttons we have been landing. We have not had any targeted shark fishing this week but there are hammerheads, sandbar and bulls around if you goal is to land a big game shark. Blackfin tunas, along with king mackerel, are still in pretty good numbers along the reef

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.
