Sailfishing Is Here

November 2, 2012

Captain Darin and mate Mike were out this afternoon on the Lady Pamela II for a three hour charter. They started off trolling the reef edge and quickly hooked up a few Spanish mackerel. These tasty fish have just started showing up with the bait schools that continue to move into the Fort Lauderdale area. They are a lot of fun to catch on light tackle and go crazy over small trolling spoons. Once the anglers got warmed up to catching fish the crew moved out into 130 feet of water where they instantly hooked a sailfish on the high line. While Darin was busy passing the high rod down from the flybridge, a line on one of the planer boards tripped and another sailfish started jumping around the boat. All of a sudden it was a sailfish bonanza! They hooked up two more sails right after that, and they caught one but lost the other. It was a pretty incredible three hours of fishing, and another great day on the water in Fort Lauderdale.

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.
