Tiger Shark Caught Off Fort Lauderdale

April 23, 2013

April 22, 2013

Mark, a friend of mine, and two of his family members from MN headed out around 1:00 p.m. aboard the Lady Pamela II for one hell of an afternoon of fishing. We trolled for a couple of hours catching ten bonitos and two nice sashimi-size blackfin tunas. With all these bonitos on the boat we headed out to shark land. We put out 3 fresh bonitos; one on the bottom, one in the middle and one on top. In no time at all we had a monster bite on the bottom bait. This was a big fish that hit the bait so hard I thought it was going to break the rod. The heavy tackle held up though, and twenty minutes later a big tiger shark swam right to the boat! This was a big deal for me as I have never caught a tiger shark out here. A few of our other boats and captains have caught these fearsome fish, but not many. What a cool shark this was! As these fish are now a protected species, we tagged it, photographed it, and let it swim away.

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!
