Trolling on the Reef Red Hot

May 21, 2013

May 16, 2013

The Lady Pamela II sportfishing fleet brought in a mixed catch today. The Lady Pamela IV got into a mess of big kingfish on the outer reef, boating nine fish weighing between 20 and 35 lbs. They also caught a 7 ft. sailfish on the troll as they made a pass into about 180 feet of water while turning the boat south. Catching sails on the troll is exciting as these are generally pretty acrobatic when they hit the bait, and this one was no exception. There is nothing like a couple of sailfish tail-walks and jumps to get the adrenaline pumping!

The Lady Pamela III was out on the all day dolphin trip, which turned out to be a tuna trip. Our anglers boated 14 big blackfin tunas, ranging in size from 8 to 14 lbs today. We consider anything over 10 lbs to be a big blackfin off Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, so these guys really did well. Looks like beautiful weather is in store for this weekend, give Lady Pamela II sportfishing a call and let’s go catch’em up!

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.
