TROLLING SUMMERTIME FISHING - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters


September 4, 2014

August 29, 2014


Trolling along the reef picked up this week with a little bit of chop on the water thanks to Hurricane Cristobal. The challenge this week was keeping sargassum off the lines long enough to catch fish. Weed was spread all over the water surface rather than in nice lines. Still, there were plenty of bonitos and a few little tunny mixed in anywhere from 120 to 250 feet. We also hooked up one sail while on the troll. Our angler had just hooked a bonito on the left short rigger when the left long rigger took off. Another angler got to that rod quickly but the fish threw the hook after a couple of nice tail-walks.

All Day Dolphin Trip

Captain Darin was busy kite fishing the past several days and had some nice sailfish hookups as well. He got one sailfish each on three successive charters. One group of anglers also got a spectacular show as a 23 lb wahoo skyrocketed a bait off one of the kites and took off on a blistering run. If this fish had been any bigger he may have spooled the reel!

Night Time Snapper

Bottomfishing was slow early in the week as our anglers were having a tough time keeping baits on the bottom in the choppy seas. However, there were some nice yellowtails and vermilion snappers for those that could keep the baits down. Weather for the next week is forecast to be excellent so there should be plenty of grunts, snappers, and triggerfish to be had.

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!
