What a great day for sailfishin

The seas have been relatively calm this weekend, but today we had another couple of kids get seasick on the Pamela. We had Scott and his family from NY on board, and at 9:00 am we left the dock and started trolling. We had just caught one kingfish when the girls started to get seasick so we ran in and dropped them off at the pier and ran back out. There was an awesome edge in 70 feet of water that was a sharp blue/green. It looked very good for sailfishing so we sat there for a brief 15 minutes before a sailfish popped up on the right short line. The fish didn’t eat, but swam to the left short and we hooked him up. Of course wouldn’t you know it, while fighting this sailfish a sailboat race came right through our fishing zone! We’re fighting this sailfish and there are sailboats off our bow and stern almost running our fish over! To add to the drama, while all this mayhem is going on, another sailfish swam up to the boat, so I pitched another bait to it. He took the pitch and all of a sudden we had a double header. We got both fish to the boat, despite the sailboats. What a great day for sailfishing!

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.
