Red Hot Fishing Off Fort Lauderdale

March 14, 2016

March 8, 2016


This past Sunday Lady Pamela sportfishing had a four-hour morning where we trolled, kitefished and did a little bit a bottom fishing. The troll and kitefishing were not productive but we caught some vermilion snappers and triggerfish off the bottom. We headed back out in the afternoon with six people on a shared charter hoping forbetter action. As soon as we got the lines out in 200 feet of water, we started catching blackfin tuna. Then we caught more blackfin tuna. For three straight hours, we were catching blackfin tuna. This action was nonstop as we boated 26 blackfin tuna in total. It was with a doubt one of the best blackfin tuna bites I have seen.

BlackFIn Tunas

On Monday we caught a few more blackfin tunas off Ft. Lauderdale, then went out to 350 feet to put the shark baits out. Within 30 minutes our anglers saw a giant shark going after the left long kite bait. It was big hammerhead and Jason jumped in the chair and set the hook. This fish put up a tough 30 minute fight before we finally got to the boat. Our lucky angler got some great pictures of his 7 foot scalloped hammerhead shark. What fun!

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.
