Our South Florida summer has been pretty typical, weather wise – calm seas and afternoon thunderstorms! As for fishing, July has been a very active month for the Lady Pamela II crew here in Fort Lauderdale. We have caught several different types of fish throughout the month and the kingfish and bonito bite has been red hot! We average just about 10-15 kings and bonitos per trip, reaching anywhere from 8-35 lbs (the biggest bonitos I have ever seen!). The inlet is holding larger cuda’s along with some nice size amberjacks in deeper water. A few sailfish are still being spotted; catching a sailfish mid July is pretty amazing – they usually don’t hang around the Lauderdale area this late in the season. There’s been some brutal game shark battles off the local ship wrecks as well. Can’t wait to see what August has in store for us here in South Florida!
