Fort LAuderdale Fishing Charters

Captain JJ and Mike were out on the Lady Pamela IV today, trolling the reef edge using seawitch feathers tipped with bonito strips. The action was pretty constant, with bonitos, blackfin tunas and kingfish slamming everything that they put in the water. With more than a dozen fish in the boat they decided to put the kites out to see if they could raise some sailfish. No sailfish bit, but a smoker 42 lb kingfish demolished one of the baits and gave our anglers a great fight. This was a big fat fish that would have been a big money winner had they been fishing a kingfish tournament.

The Lady Pamela III was out driftfishing today and hauled in a mixed bag bottomfish. There were yellowtails, mangrove snappers, grunts, a few grey triggerfish and one gigantic filefish! The filefish was nearly 3 feet long but only about one inch wide! They are commonly found around coral reefs but are rarely caught on hook and line because they have a very small mouth. Filefish do not have any food value so this one was released back into the briny deep.


The Lady Pamela II spent the day sportfishing, trolling the reef edge. There was a strong northwest wind which made the seas pretty choppy further offshore which limted fishing optios. There was plenty of action along the reef though, with three big barracudas hooked up, along with fifteen bonitos up to 10 lbs. All in all it was a pretty productive day, despite the weather. The next few days are looking a little iffy with the weather, but a cold front that’s due to pass through before the weekend should get the fish popping.

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.
