Shark's Are Here

Captain Darin and mate Steve were busy today with back-to-back fishing charters off Ft. Lauderdale. Their anglers had great fun catching a giant greater hammerhead shark and some bonitos during the 8‑12 pm morning trip. The shark action continued during the 1‑5 pm afternoon trip as their second group of anglers caught a scalloped hammerhead shark. Some blackfin tunas and a nice mahi-mahi were also caught in the afternoon.

The last day of the month turned out to be an awesome fishing day as guest Jay chartered the Lady Pamela II for his daughter Katie’s 15th birthday. We started the eight hour deep-sea fishing trip with some kite fishing for sailfish but it started raining so we reeled them in and moved on to trolling. The rain never stopped but we caught three blackfin tunas, three bonitos, two mahi-mahi, and a kingfish on the troll.


There was plenty of fishing time left after several hours of trolling, so we moved the Lady Pamela II offshore for some shark fishing. We sat out there for four hours before we got the one big bite to put the icing on Katie’s birthday cake. That one hookup turned out to be a monster thresher shark in the 600‑650 lb range. These threshers have massive tail fins that can be as long as the total body length. They use the long tail to stun prey, or to put up a great fight like this fish did when hooked. Nice catch gang!

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.
