Mahi MAhi fishing Red Hot South Florida

The great fall fishing has continued this week off Ft. Lauderdale. The mullet run is still going strong with pods of bait moving along the beach all the way to outside of the reef edge. The Lady Pamela II has been averaging two sailfish a trip, with some big mahi-mahi working relatively near shore in the 200-300 foot depth range, grabbing the sailfish baits. On the reef, we are seeing some big king mackerel and blackfin tunas, particularly around the bait pods. The spanish mackerel and tarpon have been all over the mullet schools that are in close to the beach, but we have not been targeting those species this week because of so much hot action offshore. What a terrible predicament; we have to choose what species we want to catch during the day!

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.
