NightTime Swordfishing Fort lauderdale

February 9, 2015


One of the Lady Pamela II sportfishing specialties is swordfishing, either as day or night charters. Last night we had a swordfish charter that from 6 PM to 2 AM. We ran off shore nearly 12 miles with a light southeast wind blowing 5 to 10 miles an hour, and seas of 2 feet or less. We had ideal nighttime swordfishing conditions. We also had lots of action with not one, but three rare Cuban night shark hookups. These are deep water, bottom feeding sharks that run about 6-7 feet in length. They are very feisty when hooked and can be problematic when trying to target swordfish. Fortunately, in between the shark hookups were able to boat a nice 100 inch 100 pound swordfish. We had one other swordfish hookup but lost that fish on the way up. All in all it was simply a beautiful fishing night out there off Ft. Lauderdale.



Thanks to Our Charter Jack Dallal, Pat Baker, Mark Dallal From Florida for taking us 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.
