Shark Fishing

April 25, 2015

Shannon and her friend were out on the Lady Pamela II this week and the sharks were biting. The pair of anglers caught a big dusky shark and we also got a big hammerhead that day. On the 19th we caught a 35 pound mahi-mahi and another hammerhead. We also hooked up, but lost a sailfish. The bonitos have been running solid on the reef off Ft. Lauderdale and we’ve been averaging at least six fish per trip. With the sun going down later in the afternoon we have started running a 2pm to 6pm trip, and both bonito and blackfin tunas have been anxious to bite during that time slot. Yesterday afternoon we caught eight blackfin tunas in a row. Nothing like fresh tuna sashimi for our fishing guests!

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.
