Monster Mako Shark

This afternoon the Lady Pamela III had a nighttime tarpon fishing trip scheduled, but before it got dark the crew wanted to try some sharkfishing. A quick run straight offshore put the boat in 350 feet of water, and in 20 minutes they had hooked up a 5 foot sandbar shark. This sure wet our anglers’ appetite and they wanted to try to catch another shark, so mates Joe and Dom put big baits right back out. In less than 5 minutes they got a bite from a huge Mako shark. This monster started jumping all over the ocean, with the boat chasing the fish out to 800 feet of water. This was a huge catch; one of the biggest Makos that I have seen caught off Ft. Lauderdale.

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.
