Tiger Sharks Off Fort Lauderdale

September 30, 2015

September 17, 2015


The Lady Pamela II headed out today on a six hour charter and sailed right into a bunch of king mackerel. These fish were biting on the troll, attacking seawitch feathers run behind planers in 60 feet of water. There were a few blackfin tuna and bonitos also mixed in with the kings. After three hours of trolling our anglers were ready for something different so we put the big baits out in 350 feet of water. These baits were spooled out both at the surface and on the bottom, hoping to catch a monster shark. It took all of 45 minutes to get the big bite down deep and we kicked the boat in gear to set the hook. It was a tough 30 minute battle, but it was all worth it for our anglers when about a 9 foot tiger shark finally popped up in the prop wash behind the boat. It was a bruiser!

Baits dropped on one of our go-to shipwrecks produced a snowy grouper, some yelloweye snappers and two nice amberjacks. To top it all off we hooked up a sailfish while slow trolling live baits back to shore!

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
