Sharks are still here fort lauderdale shark fishing

The Lady Pamela II morning trip today was three anglers on a shared sportfishing charter. We trolled for a while but fishing was slow, as we only caught one kingfish. We moved on to kite fishing using live baits, fishing in this one spot for three hours. Mike caught one 12 lb mahi-mahi and we missed a small shark. When time was up we reeled in the baits and headed to the barn. On the way home though I happened to see a hammerhead swimming on the surface. I told my mate JJ to rig a big kingfish with a wire rig and he got it out as fast as he could. Sure enough, we hooked the hammerhead on 80 lb test and our anglers had a nice fight to round out the day.

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.
