Summer Time Wreck Fishing

May 29, 2014

May 28, 2014


We have had east southeast winds of 10 to 15 knots and seas around 2 feet off Ft. Lauderdale this week which is optimal weather for deep-dropping on some of my favorite wrecks. We started today’s trip aboard the Lady Pamela II with some trolling along the reef edge. After only a couple of passes we caught 2 nice kingfish and about a 15 lb blackfin tuna. As I moved the boat out into about 300 feet of water we re-rigged for some deep bottom-fishing. With calm seas it was easy to set up over my favorite wreck, and we boated a 25 lb amberjack on the first drop. A couple of drops later we landed a 30 lb amberjack. Both of these fish hit the baits before they hit the bottom, which was our goal. We finally did get some baits all the way down and they produced a monster Warsaw grouper. This fish was 100lbs of fight that lasted all the way up from 300 feet. What a great trip!

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.
