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.

Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
