Sharks are Here Fort Lauderdale

March 13, 2014


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!

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.
