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!!

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.
