Fishing Fort Lauderdale

Today turned out to be mahi-mahi day as both the Lady Pamela II and Lady Pamela IV caught a bunch of big mahi, up to 25 lbs. These fish were in close too, as we found them working weedlines and a current rip in between 200 and 400 feet of water. The fish were not in big schools, but each hookup seemed to bring two or three fish in behind the boats for additional hookups on pitched baits. The crew also caught a few nice blackfin tunas.

The kingfish bite took off during the afternoon trips, with both boats bringing in multiple nice fish in the 20 lb. range. These fish were caught tight along the reef edge in 110 feet of water, north of the inlet off Ft. Lauderdale beach.

TESTIMONIALS

What An Adventure!

I never leave reviews, but we had such a good time, I wanted to share with others. Captain David and his guys are top notch, you can tell as soon as you pull up that you have booked a great trip. We went out with them in April 2015 and we were told this was one of the best months for fishing off South Florida. The captain decided to fly kites (amazing!) to dangle baits so that the fish can’t see the hooks. I have never seen this, but it was amazing to see them do it. Within a few minutes we had a first sailfish on and then another hit. A double header! We landed both fish and the day went on just like that. We were watching the baits dangle on the surface all day.  Other boats in the area were “trolling” and weren’t catching any. David said it was because the water was so clear that it was important to kite fish.  I highly recommend booking them.
