Yellowfin Tuna Action in the Bahamas

If you are one of those intrepid and adventurous anglers then Lady Pamela II sportfishing is rigged and ready to hook you up with the yellowfin tunas in the western Bahamas. The summer months are prime time for yellowfin tuna action in the northwest providence channel between Bimini and Grand Bahama Island. We run our boats north from Bimini using radar and keen eyes looking for flocks of birds. They are the sure sign that tuna are crashing bait. When we get within distance of these schools we’ll use chunked sardines and fresh live pilchards to excite the tuna and turn on the bite. Last season we were catching yellowfins ranging from 30 lbs to over 100 lbs. When the fighting is over we get to enjoy the best sushi and grilled tuna you’ll ever eat. There are also plenty of mahi-mahi mixed in with or close to these schools of tuna. Sometimes it is hard to catch the tuna because of all the mahi around! We’ll often tie into a blue marlin as we are coming or going from Bimini to the tuna grounds.

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.
