Shark Fishing Fort Lauderdale

July 12, 2012

July 1, 2012


The really nice south Florida weather returned today, and some good fishing was on the agenda. Two of the Lady Pamela sportfishing trips started out by trolling the deep reef. Both boats were busy as the kingfish and bonitos were snapping up every bait that could be tossed.


The wreckfishing has been pretty slow the last few weeks, so another of the Lady Pamela fleet went to shark fishing in 350 feet of water. Plenty of fresh bonito was available for bait, and the sharks were ready to eat. Our anglers boated a nice bull shark, a sandbar shark and a great gray hammerhead shark.

Today, it was great to have Dan and Dan (father and son) back for some fishing with Mike and I. I hadn’t seen either of them for two years. They used to fish with us quite a lot, but we hadn’t seen them for two years. Young Dan got the wanderlust and moved away to Hawaii for surfing. We got to catch up on a lot of stuff on the way out.


Young Dan has always been a very lucky guy and it showed again today. We went straight to shark fishing and the baits weren’t out 5 minutes before top bait got a hit. Thirty minutes later Dan brought a huge hammerhead shark, well over six feet, to the boat. After tagging the monster hammerhead, Mike got three more baits out and then we waited. We finally got a bite and big Dan got into the fighting chair. It was a big bull shark and big Dan taught this monster a lesson! Thanks guys for coming out, it was great fun catching up on all your latest news.

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.
