Spring Fishing Off South Florida Coast

March 3, 2016


Game sharks seem to be the catch of the week, with fishing in general being quite good. On a night charter aboard the Lady Pamela II last night, our anglers hooked up a big 10 foot thresher shark. This is the first thresher we ever caught at night and it was a pretty spectacular sight once we got the monster alongside the boat. One of my good fishing friends reported catching a 9 foot tiger shark while kingfishing yesterday. During March of last year, Lady Pamela sportfishing caught three tiger sharks off Ft. Lauderdale.


The kingfishing and blackfin tuna fishing was red hot at the beginning of this week but it has since slowed down. There are a few mahi-mahi to be found offshore but no reports of any monster fish. The nighttime snapper fishing has been quite good with plenty of yellowtails, vermilions, and a few mangrove snappers.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
