Kingfish, blackfin tunas, and bonitos were the standard catch off Ft. Lauderdale this weekend, with the Lady Pamela II sportfishing boats landing multiple fish during both morning and afternoon charters. The Lady Pamela III also dropped a few fresh bonitos as bait in 350 feet of water and added a big Sandbar shark to the catch.

The action on Sunday was more of the same, with plenty of fish to be caught along the outer reef edge. Some nice kings and blackfins were snapping the baits between 150 and 350 feet of water. The Lady Pamela IV also got into some mahi-mahi during an offshore swing while trolling. The week ahead looks very promising, with water temperatures hovering around 80 F. Sea conditions are predicted to be calm, with light winds out of the southeast. Perfect for a few hours on the water with Lady Pamela II sportfishing!


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.
