Sandbar shark - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Sandbar shark

May 13, 2013

The Lady Pamela IV was out this morning trolling the outer reef edge north of Port Everglades Inlet in search of toothy predators. Captain Darin kept the charter busy with bonitos and blackfin tunas crashing seawitch feathers. They also caught a couple of 20 lb kingfish, and then it was time move offshore with fresh bonito as bait for sharks. It took two bait sets in 350 feet of water before the big bite. It turned out to be a 6ft sandbar shark that put up a nice little fight as it was reeled to the boat, photographed, and released. These sharks are easily recognized because they have a tall dorsal fin.


Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
