Great November Fishing Fort LauderdalePosted on: 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!
