Sharks are Here Fort Lauderdale

The Lady Pamela II had two trips today, though as expected the seas were pretty rough. There was a strong wind straight out of the north so we worked close in to shore where the seas were a little calmer. We got a few Spanish mackerel on the reef and also had a big hammerhead up on the top but he threw the hook.


In the afternoon we again trolled in shallow and caught some Spanish mackerel. We then moved out to 100 feet of water and caught a couple kingfish. The seas started to cooperate so we moved further offshore and found some blackfin tunas in 400 feet of water. Just outside of these fish we saw a few big frigatebirds which often point to mahi-mahi or big billlfish. This time we found mahi-mahi under the birds and got one 10 pounder and jumped off a couple of twenty pound fish. Turned out to be pretty good fishing despite the weather!

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!
