Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters, Fishing florida

The Lady Pamela II was out for all kinds of fishing action on Saturday, from trolling, to kite fishing. We started the day boating 5 nice blackfin tunas on the troll, fishing off the reef edge in 120 feet of water. We then moved a little further offshore, finding a bit of a tide rip and a school of dolphin. Our anglers had fun landing 8 keepers out of the school. Toward the end of the trip we threw the kites up and had a sailfish take what we had to offer! It was a quick fight, and after a little bit of jumping and thrashing, we got some photos and a sailfish release.

On Sunday all the action was around the reef for the Lady Pamela II. Trolling seawitch feathers with bonito strips, we had the kingfish and blackfin tunas battling it out for the baits. We would hook a kingfish, then a blackfin, then another blackfin, then another kingfish! Despite some thrown hooks and jumped off fish, our anglers ended up taking home a total of 5 blackfin tunas, and 3 kingfish. They also happened to boat a couple of dolphin after one pass into deeper water. Good fishing gang!

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.
