WINTER TIME FISHING - Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

WINTER TIME FISHING

January 14, 2018

I am writing to bring you up to date on the exciting fishing action we have had off the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood area. The last week or so Lady Pamela sportfishing has been catching a few king mackerel, bluefish, and wahoos in around 300 to 400 feet of water. A little further out, in 400-500 feet of water, the shark fishing has also been good. We caught a variety of sharks including hammerheads, makos, and a thresher shark.

THIS WAS A GREAT FIGHT IT WAS ON 20 LB TEST AND IT TOOK 30 MIN AND THATS FAST FOR LIGHT LINE GREAT ANGLER

THIS BLACKFIN TUNA WE CAUGHT WAS OUTTA THE KITE ON THE LADY PAMELA WITH CAPT STEVE AND MATE DONNIE

WE HAD TO RELEASE THIS BLACK BECAUSE GROUPERS ARE OUTTA SEASON

Live-baiting from kites has produced more mahi-mahi than sailfish in the 100-300 foot depth range. Small schools of 5-7 fish were having a great time chasing our surface baits under the kites. Out closer to 300 feet of water we caught 3 sails while trolling and caught a few more while slow trolling live bonitos. There has been a little bit of everything offshore and the action should keep up this week as a small cold front pushing through today.

WE DONT TROLL MUCH IN THE WINTER BUT SOME TIMES WE DO AND CATCH MAHI

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.
