Great Fishing Christmas Week - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Great Fishing Christmas Week

December 28, 2012

December 26, 2012

I was at the helm of Lady Pamela I this afternoon, with a group of anglers anxious for some after-Christmas fishing. Our 1‑5 pm trip was nonstop action with big schools of bonito tearing into every kind of bait we threw in the water. The Spanish mackerel were also abundant, but it was a challenge keeping baits away from the bonitos long enough for the mackerel to bite! We even hooked into a silky shark that ate one of the bonitos as it was being reeled in.

The Lady Pamela III was also out on a 1‑5 pm charter with Gui, a guest visiting Ft. Lauderdale from Canada. The LP III spent the afternoon kitefishing and Gui was rewarded with a nice sailfish catch.

The Lady Pamela IV was out on a morning charter with Jeff and Max, a father and son visiting from New Jersey. They too were rewarded with a nice sailfish catch. Good job guys! A little bit of cold weather has settled in which should keep the fish frisky and biting through the weekend. Come on out!

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.
