Sharks And Tunas Fort Lauderdale

May 31, 2013

May 30, 2013

The past few days have seen strong east winds and high seas, but today the Lady Pamela IV had some tough anglers aboard that wanted to catch fish. Captain Darin and JJ opted to kitefish into the seas because trolling along the reef edge in the trough would have been a miserable rollercoaster ride. The decision turned out to be a good one as they caught some big blackfin tunas in the 15 lb range and a 10 lb mahi-mahi.

They also had a big slab of bonito rigged with 2 hooks hanging off the kite, hoping for a shark. They got their wish when a big dorsal fin popped up behind the bait. It only took one circle of the bait before the monster hammerhead ripped the bait from the kite. This fish put up a great fight, made even more exciting in the high seas. Our intrepid anglers prevailed and got the fish to the boat for some quick pictures and a release. What a trip!

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!
