Huge Yellowfin Tuna Off Fort Lauderdale

April 25, 2016

Today started out as just another average fishing day for Lady Pamela II sportfishing, as we set out the kites for some sailfishing. We were in 240 feet of water off Ft. Lauderdale and had a couple of frisky googleyes bouncing around on the surface, on light action 30lb outfits. Our anglers were ill-prepared for the freight train that slammed one of the baits and started screaming line off the reel. A single, cruising 130lb yellowfin tuna crashed our sailfish party and had me scrambling to chase the fish before it spooled the reel. Nearly two hours later some extremely happy (and tired!) anglers got the bruiser into the boat. You can clearly see the looks of sheer joy on the faces of not only our anglers, but the captain and mate too! I can’t believe we didn’t break the line off. All I can say is WOW!!

Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
