Sharks, Swordfish, Tarpoon , Kingfish & More Off Fort Lauderdale

The first part of this month is famous for Octoberfest in Germany, but here in Fort Lauderdale I am officially renaming it Octoberfish, because the fishing has been so good. The king mackerel fishing on the troll is the best I’ve seen in probably 10 years. Yesterday morning the Lady Pamela II boated 14 keeper king mackerel, with 20 kings caught overall. On top of that, we had five shots on sailfish on the troll, with two hookups!

Out in deeper water, off the reef, we have seen a nice variety of big game sharks. We got a big bull shark and a hammerhead two days ago. And yesterday afternoon we hooked up about a 7 foot tiger shark. For those interested in a longer charter, the daytime swordfishing has produced a few fish up to 300 pounds. The Lady Pamela weekly dolphin trip yielded fish ranging 8 to 20 pounds caught along the Gulf Stream edge between 5 and 10 miles offshore. So, who wants to go October fishing? We’ll provide the tackle, you provide the beer, and let’s go catch some fish!

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.
