Spring Fishing Off South Florida Coast - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Spring Fishing Off South Florida Coast

March 4, 2016

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.

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.
