Great Fishing Christmas Week

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!

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!
