SummerTime Fishing - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

SummerTime Fishing

July 12, 2016

The trolling off Fort Lauderdale in the past two days has been decent, with blackfin tunas, bonitos, and mahi-mahi’s all taking seawitch feather or ballyhoo off planers. Lady Pamela 2 sportfishing boats have been trolling anywhere from 100 to 350 feet of water, sometimes wandering out to about 800 feet.


The nighttime driftfishing has really started producing some mangrove snappers as they are starting to spawn this month. I expect July and August to be very good for mangrove snapper fishing both day and night. Today, in addition to mangroves, we caught a bunch of her over 40 vermilion snappers, along with a mixed bag of triggerfish, big porgies, and grunts.


Swordfishing has been hit or miss this week. We had a nighttime swordfish trip last Saturday night and we caught one fish that went about 100 pounds. On a daytime swordfish trip one day earlier this week we had three sword bites and had one hookup in 1200 feet of water, but the fish threw the hook when it was still 800 feet underneath the boat.

Awesome Trip!

I took my 3 kids out with Captain David and Crew for a day of fishing in Miami. Upon arriving we were greeted by a beautiful marina and the captain was ready to go. We had the opportunity to catch some bait and the mate through the cast net a few times while my kids helped load them into the baitwell. We were fishing within 10 minutes and the action was great. I was just happy to share this with my kids, but Captain David went beyond my expectations. I highly recommend you book Lady Pamela. We will be back!
