Great Fishing Now in Fort Lauderdale

December 11, 2013

December 6, 2013

We had a great group of guys from Kentucky with us today that were hoping to catch some dolphin and sailfish. We bought two dozen goggleyes on the way out in the morning for the all-day charter. There was some green water and a nice knot and a half north current right out front of Port Everglades, so we set up there in about 150 feet of water. The sailfish bite was on and we went one for two on the sails right away. Unfortunately one of the guests got seasick so we ran back in to drop him off at the dock. It was nearly noon by this time so we ran the Lady Pamela II offshore and found three nice mahi-mahi and a big African pompano.

To round out the day, we set the kites back out in 200 feet of water looking for more sailfish. The lively goggleyes we had left were just ticket, as our anglers hooked up and landed another three sails. Mahi-mahi, African pompano and four of five sailfish sure made for an exciting full day charter.

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.
