Pretty Darn Good Wahoo

June 1, 2013

Captain David and mate Jake made the most of improved fishing weather today, loading the Lady Pamela IV with a bunch of game fish. They started the morning working the reef in 100 feet of water, producing some nice kingfish. Captain David then caught word over the marine radio of a nice color change offshore Ft. Lauderdale so they pulled in the lines and went looking for the break in water color. The brownish-green coastal water turned to a deep purple out in 900 feet of water, associated with a slight current rip. As soonas the lines were back out a 20 lb wahoo slammed one of the baits. This was no monster wahoo but it put up a pretty darn good fight. Jake had just boated the wahoo when the reels started singing again. This time it was gaffer dolphin in the 10-15 lb range. Our anglers had more than a dozen hookups, putting five nice fish in the box.



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.
