November Red Hot Fishing

November 29, 2012

November 26, 2012

High winds and heavy seas out of the northeast really put a damper on the Thanksgiving fishing. Few anglers were willing to brave the elements, choosing football and turkey instead. The wind completely died the past few days which flattened out the seas, but also slowed the fishing. On top of that we have had a full moon which also slows the bite. Regardless, we have caught some sailfish both live bait trolling and live bait kitefishing. The wind is expected to pick back up out of the north/northeast which should kick up the bite once again.

Just before the full moon, the Lady Pamela sportfishing fleet was catching wahoo, kingfish, and mahi-mahi on fresh ballyhoos trolled from 400 to 700 feet of water. We also were landing a few small blackfin tunas. The driftfishing has been good with lots of big trigger fish being caught. We have also been bring in some kingfish and lots of yellowtail snapper between 50 and 150 feet of water. Now that all the turkey leftovers are gone it’s time to put some fish on the table. This weekend will be good sportfishing weather; so give us a call.

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!
