Mahi Mahi Action

July 8, 2017

Lady Pamela II sportfishing has seen some excellent mahi-mahi action the past week or so, with big schools of fish from as close to a mile offshore of the Fort Lauderdale/ Hollywood area all the way out to 20 miles. My captains are on the lookout for birds, weedlines, or debris as prime indicators of possible fish. One of our anglers aboard our driftboat Lois Ann was even lucky enough to land a mahi. Our wily angler was free-lining a surface bait while also fishing another line on the bottom for snapper.

500-1000 feet of water this week

when you find these bird a lot of the time it means mahi

There have been a few blackfin tuna caught on the troll in about 120 feet of water, and the shark fishing has really picked up. Over the last week the Lady Pamela II sportfishing boats caught a hammerhead, a sandbar shark, and a bull shark. The highlight of the week though was a small tiger shark! In honor of the Discovery Channel’s July shark week series look for some of my upcoming reports to focus on the popular game sharks found in our south Florida waters.

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.
