Spring Fishing in Fort Lauderdale
April 6, 2012
The spring fishing season has started to heat up, and our anchor snapper trips on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights are becoming popular. These trips run from 7pm-11pm, and with daylight savings time we are catching both the dusk bite and the nighttime bite.
Last night, Adam and Joe had 10 people on our snapper trip, and they caught 40 assorted snapper, including yellowtails, vermillions, grays, and a couple of muttons.

Today the Lady Pamela IV and the Lady Pamela I each had two half day charters, and both crews were kept busy. Our anglers on both boats caught a few mahi-mahi and some kingfish in the morning trip. On the afternoon trip the Lady Pamela IV caught a few kingfish and a huge hammerhead shark out in 350 feet of water. There is nothing like the sound of line singing off of a 130 lb reel, with the rod bent nearly double to get our angler’s adrenaline going!
The next few months offer prime opportunities for shark fishing, particularly for hammerheads. We see plenty of the bigger hammerheads migrating through south Florida during April, May and June. These monsters cannot resist big kingfish or bonito strips fished on the bottom. Fort Lauderdale is the place to be if you every want to do battle with one of these titans. Come on down and give us a call.
