Nighttime Tarpon Fishing in Fort Lauderdale

May 26, 2010

May 24th, 2010

Joe, his son, and his friend George went Tarpon fishing tonight with Jeff and I aboard the Lady Pamela II. We left Lauderdale Marina and anchored in 7 ft of water on the grassy flats. As soon as we got situated and started chumming behind the boat, a Tarpon visited our bait, jumped a few times but managed to get away. After our first bite, we caught two Barracuda’s and then another Tarpon came up and ate. Joe’s son did a great job and landed his first 40 lb Tarpon. We pulled him in the boat, got a few pictures then expertly released the fish back into the water. Within minutes after we freed the Tarpon, a Stingray ate and held on for about 20 minutes before it broke the line. We went 1 for 4 on the Tarpon bite, caught 2 Barracuda, and battled with a Stingray.

TESTIMONIALS

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!
