Ft Lauderdale Fishing

Captain JJ and mate Mike spent both morning and afternoon trips on the Lady Pamela II out sharkfishing off Ft. Lauderdale. They set fresh bonito baits on the bottom, mid-depth, and at the surface in 350 feet of water. Both trips produced hammerhead sharks, to the thrill and excitement of our anglers.

The Lady Pamela IV cruised the reef edge both north and south of Port Everglades Inlet and brought in blackfin tunas and a pile of bonitos. The blackfins and bonitos tend to school together, or in close proximity to each other, so you never know which one you are going to hook up. They have been particularly plentiful this spring, and we expect their numbers to stay high in the Ft. Lauderdale area through June if the weather does not get too hot.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
