The past couple days the Florida Current (that part of the Gulf Stream system that flows generally from the Gulf of Mexico along the Florida east coast to the Atlantic Ocean) has been flowing very close inshore. As a result, we caught some mahi-mahi surprisingly close to shore earlier in the week. This morning the Lady Pamela II was again fishing in blue water in 110 feet of water that produced a nice sailfish in the first 10 minutes of trolling. Fishing overall has been very productive as we have seen a mixed catch of bonitos, kingfish, and blackfin tuna. There are some sharks around but we have not done any targeted shark fishing this week. One five foot reef shark was caught and released during the yesterday afternoon charter while trolling the reef edge.

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.
