Wahoos are still here off Fort Lauderdale

July 30, 2013

Lady Pamela II ended the month of July with one of the best fishing days this summer. A group of tourists from France were on board today for a six hour charter. Things got moving quickly as we hooked up and released a sailfish on the troll just outside of Port Everglades inlet. Right after that we landed three kingfish in a row, up to 20 lbs. It was obvious that the reef edge off Ft. Lauderdale was exploding with action today, as our anglers reeled in bonito after bonito. There were a few blackfin tunas that got into the mix as well.

Toward the end of the trip we moved offshore and set out a few fresh bonitos for sharkfishing. Within twenty minutes we hooked a monster bull shark that really tested our crew at the end of the trip. It was a great catch and release for our friends from France, and a perfect way to round out the day.

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.
