May Fishing Forecast

May 8, 2014

May 1, 2014


The Lady Pamela II’s May 2014 sportfishing forecast off Fort Lauderdale is another toothy one, with the bonito, king mackerel and blackfin tuna bites expected to go into overdrive this month. We’ve been trolling seawitch feathers tipped with bonito strips on the reef edge this past week and it has been nonstop action with these predators.

The biggest news is that grouper season opened up today which means we can now keep all those big gag and black groupers we have had to release over the last few weeks. Look for a nice mix of snappers during our Lady Pamela III bottomfishing trips for grouper.


For those that want to battle the sea monsters, we saw plenty of hammerhead action last May out in 350 feet of water. We caught and released two 8 footers last week and expect these big fish to stay around for another month or so. Give us a call and let’s go fishing!!

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
