Shipwreck Fishing in Ft Lauderdale, Florida!

Fishing in Fort Lauderdale is a creative way to socialize with clients, guests and employees in a stress free environment. Today, Ray & Larry brought a few business clients aboard the Lady Pamela for an all day fishing charter and had a great time. For the first few hours of fishing, the Mahi – Mahi were busting bait on the troll left and right. We caught 20 Dolphin fish, all too short to keep. After we had to leave the Mahi alone, we headed to a shipwreck to see who was home. Wreck fishing was red hot; we went 3 for 4 on the Amberjack bite and fought a 50lb Warsaw Grouper out of the wreck. Now Ray had dinner covered. We moved in to shallower water and our first drop produced a nice size Cobia. Wreck fishing made up for all those short Mahi!

An Amberjack's dark stripe extends from nose to in front of dorsal fin and "lights up" when fish is in feeding mode.

Amberjacks are aggressive predator fish that prowl the water column near obstructions from the surface to the bottom.

Warsaw groupers are classified as deep-water groupers since they inhabit reefs on the continental shelf break in waters 180 to 1700 feet deep.

Warsaw Grouper's are found in Belize, Brazil, Cuba, Haiti, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago, the United States.

Cobia make seasonal migrations along the coasts in search of water in their preferred temperature range. Wintering in the Gulf of Mexico, they migrate north as far as Maryland in the Summer, passing through Florida in March.

Enjoy your dinner!

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.
