Tuna fishing Fort Lauderdale

February 28, 2014


The Lady Pamela II fleet has two all-day charts today. I ran the 55 footer and Capt. Justin ran the 45 footer. My charter was a mixed of fishing as got a couple tilefish on some deep drops, and pulled in couple of bonitos on the troll. We saw a couple of sailfish but could not draw any bites. We also had a big shark bite on one of the surface baits but he bit clean through the monofilament leader of the sailfish rig and swam off.


Capt. Justin’s charter caught some blackfin tunas up to 13 pounds, as well as a few bonitos. Some of his charter party got a little sick so they ended up coming in early.


I am excited about March fishing off Fort Lauderdale as my review of last year’s trips shows that big sharks and loads of blackfin tunas and bonitos should be around. The weather will be the tricky part with fishing in March as the seas may be somewhat unpredictable. Whatever the weather though, the LPII fleet is always ready to go! Give us a call.

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.
