Red Hot Fishing Fort Lauderdale Florida

November 5, 2011

November 2 and 3, 2011

The last few days we had a nice cold front move through, and when that happens, you can expect first rate fishing in Ft. Lauderdale. We have been live bait kite fishing pretty much every trip for the past several weeks. On November 2nd we had a morning trip with Reggie and his friends from Washington, D.C. They caught a few 20 lb. mahi-mahi, and then missed a sailfish first thing in the morning. Later, Reggie hooked up a sailfish that we almost lost. The fish jumped straight at the boat, landed on the covering board, then fell back into the water. My mate Pauli said the fish was teetering like a seesaw! I got a good laugh when I heard that Reggie jumped out of the fighting chair because he thought that the fish was going to hit him!

Nice Dolphin Fishing Fort Lauderdale

On November 3rd we had two half-day fishing charters; one from 8 a.m.-12 noon, with the other running from 1p.m.-5p.m. On the morning trip we caught some nice mahi-mahi and 10 Spanish mackerel. The mahi-mahi we’ve been catching the last few days have all been over 12 lbs, with a few fish of 20-25 lbs thrown in. We also missed a sailfish in the morning.

Anglers Bob, and wife Terry caught a nice sailfish in the afternoon and missed a few other knockdowns off the kites. They also caught three 20 lb mahi-mahi and six Spanish mackerel. They sure boated a nice group of fish in four hours. You’ve gotta love the fishing this time of year!

If you ever wanted to catch a sailfish or a swordfish, this is the time of year, and those are not the only abundant species. We also see plenty of kingfish, snappers, mahi-mahi, wahoo, tunas, and sharks this time of year. Come on down to Ft. Lauderdale and let the Lady Pamela crew show you the fishing trip of a lifetime.

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!
