Kingfish and Sharks - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Kingfish and Sharks

April 18, 2013

April 16, 2013

Jack and his family from Rhode Island came out fishing with Adam and I on an afternoon charter aboard the Lady Pamela II. We heard that the sailfish were biting down south so we motored on down and fished there for a while, but never got a sailfish bite. We did however hook into a 50 lb. kingfish on the kite. This was an amazing catch, without a doubt the largest kingfish ever landed on one of our boats.

Kingfish 50 LBS

After catching our breath from the kingfish fight we bumped out a little deeper and put a few more big baits out, hoping for a sea monster. It took until the end of trip for the big bite. With 5 minutes to go before reeling in, two big scalloped hammerheads showed up and were fighting over the baits. The winner of that fight got hooked up and our anglers fought a 30 minute plus battle before finally getting this nice fish to the boat. What a crazy fishing day this turned out to be.

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!
