September 20-23 Lady Pamela 2 Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report

September 23, 2014

September 20-23, 2014


The weather has cooled down just a bit which is making the September fishing really pleasant. This past week the Lady Pamela II hooked into a few big game sharks in about 300 ft. of water. One was a nice hammerhead estimated at 350 lbs that was caught and released. Trolling outside the reef is producing bonitos and some kings. On one of our afternoon trips on Sunday we made a few drops on a shipwreck and hooked up a 40 lb. amberjack. There are groupers around these wrecks as well, but no hookups on Sunday.


We are starting to see a few more sailfish with the cooler weather. The east winds that are predicted over the next 3 or 4 days are perfect for kitefishing in around 200 ft. of water. Live baits hanging below the kites are no doubt the most productive way to put sailfish in the boat.


The Lady Pamela II driftboat is finding a lot of yellowtail snapper for our bottomfishing anglers, along with grunts and a few grey triggers.

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.
