The Lady Pamela sportfishing fleet has been landing a mixed bag of fish this week. Kitefishing has produced a few sailfish, and one of the boats had a big wahoo crush one of the live baits hanging from the kite. This fish rocketed out of nowhere to take the bait, and then spooled nearly half the line off of a 50 wide reel before slowing. Our angler had his job cut out for him but he eventually brought the 40+ lb fish to the boat. The Lady Pamela II also caught a couple of wahoo, as well as some king mackerel on the troll. They stopped over a wreck at the end of one trip and hooked up two beefy amberjacks. They were big enough to put the ache in our anglers’ arms!

Nice Sailfish

Schools of finger mullet and pilchards having been moving in and out of Port Everglades inlet and these have attracted some big tarpon. We caught a 60 lber with live bait fished on the bottom, along with and a few barracudas and jacks

Sailfish Jumping

The Lady Pamela III nighttime anchor trips have consistently produced some nice mangrove and yellowtail snapper everyday this week. This trip, which runs from 7‑11 pm weeknights, is a real bargain at only $45 per person. Sometimes it seems like the fish are just schooled up, waiting for our anchor to drop!

Tight LINES,

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.
