Great November Fishing Fort Lauderdale

November 11, 2015

November 8-9, 2015


The past few days the Lady Pamela II has had some exciting kite fishing offshore Fort Lauderdale. We have been catching big mahi-mahi and sailfish off live goggleyes hanging below the kites. The mahi-mahi have run up to 25 lbs. and they have been in close to shore, in anywhere from 120 to 150 of water. We have been averaging two sailfish on every trip too. We really never know what species is going to crush the baits! On a couple of trips this week we moved out into deeper water and got a great hammerhead shark and a dusky shark. The drift fishing trips has been a little slow but our anglers are still bringing in some yellowtail snapper, triggerfish, and mutton snapper. Flat lines fished on the surface have also produced a few king mackerel.





Big tarpon have moved into the Port Everglades Inlet area and we have had a couple tarpon trips this past week producing nice bites but no tags and releases. We are typically getting 2-3 tarpon bites on the evening trips, with some big jack crevalles periodically crashing the baits, providing a little extra excitement!

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!
