[Fort Lauderdale,FL] In the mist of bait fishing, a 20lb Bull Dolphin hooked itself to the spinner with 20lb test, talk about a nice fight. Mike pitched bait on another spinner and hooked a 15 lb’er. Shortly after, a 12 lb Mahi ate the left planner so we had 3 fish on at one time.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] Around 10 AM, a Sailfish was on the left long and Paul was in the fighting chair. This fish put on a great show for Paul, jumping all over the place within feet of the boat. We expertly tagged and released the 84” Atlantic Sailfish caught offshore Fort Lauderdale.

[Fort Lauderdale,FL] Summertime is the best time of year for action on the reefs in Fort Lauderdale. The King Mackerel, Bonito and Blackfin Tuna are biting nicely and as far as wreck fishing goes, hello Grouper, Snapper & Cobia!
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] Fishing in Fort Lauderdale during the month of June is nothing short of epic. There is plenty of activity inshore and offshore. Whether we are making a deep drop for Daytime Swordfish in 1,800 ft of water or trolling offshore for Mahi, the Lady Pamela II fleet will find the action.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] Deep Sea Fishing in Fort Lauderdale during the month of May offers an endless variety of fish, from 30 lb Mahi – Mahi on the troll to 10 ft Game Sharks in 350 ft of water. May is notorious for its east wind, which pushes the blue water edge in tight close to shore and the fish follow.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] The Sailfish are still biting in Ft Lauderdale. The Blackfin Tuna are providing fresh fish dinners and the Game Shark bite is still solid if bait is presented properly.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] Ft Lauderdale has officially welcomed its spring fishing season. The Sailfish are active on the reef, the King Mackerel are weighing in anywhere from 15-30 lb's and the Mahi are scattered in schools offshore.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] We hooked up with an April Sailfish and it began jumping right in front of our eyes. That was probably one of the last Sailfish we will see until the season kicks off again in the fall. We expertly released the Sailfish back into the blue and ended the day with two Blackfin Tuna for dinner.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] Fishing in Fort Lauderdale during the month of April is always action packed. The Barracuda are stealth inshore, the shipwrecks are full of fish and the Game Shark bite is solid if bait is presented properly. How could you go wrong?
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] We headed out Port Everglades looking for table fare; King Mackerel, Dolphin fish, Wahoo and/or Cobia. Other than some Kingfish and a few Bonito, the eating fish were MIA, but everyone was able to reel in a fish.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] The Swordfish fishing action off Fort Lauderdale is starting to pick up just in time for those calm evenings offshore. A typical night of Swordfishing in Ft Lauderdale produces an average of three to four bites, maybe even more.

[Fort Lauderdale,FL] Spring has definitely arrived to Fort Lauderdale and the action followed. Fishing in Fort Lauderdale during the springtime is great; big game species ditch the north and head south for a few months, just like snowbirds.

[Fort Lauderdale,FL] I realize Game Sharks have been the main subject in many of my daily reports, but the large migratory sharks such as Hammerhead’s, Thresher’s and Bull Sharks have really been pouring through the Fort Lauderdale area offshore. Fresh, bloody King Mackerel and petite, whole Bonito fish really tend to turn these marine monsters on.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] The Game Sharks have arrived to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Put your game face on and come fish the Lady Pamela II for Hammerhead Sharks, Mako Sharks, Bull Sharks and Thresher Sharks.

[Fort Lauderdale,FL] With our solid Sailfish bite, goggle eyes were a good decision. We loaded up with live bait and headed offshore to 170ft of water. Fishing was slow for the first hour then out of no where it was a feeding frenzy just feet from a freight ship.

[Fort Lauderdale,FL] 2010 definitely surprised South Florida with freezing temperatures and a killer bite offshore. Only the brave, die hards were on the water in search of the Atlantic Sailfish and it was well worth it with all the layers.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] In the duration of just four hours, the Lady Pamela II went 9 for 15 on the Atlantic Sailfish bite. 20 fish were seen, a few just weren’t interested in our spread. Talk about action! Today was one of the best Sailfishing bites in Fort Lauderdale this year.

[Fort Lauderdale,FL] December fishing in Fort Lauderdale is a mixed bag. With cold fronts passing through, the bite is solid afterwards and the Sailfish want to play.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing Wreck Fishing is productive when dropping live bait on the bottom. Trolling is attracting King Mackerel, Mahi, Bonito and Blackfin Tuna. The Atlantic Sailfish bite is red hot, especially when live goggle eyes are dangling from a kite.
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] December isn't making its presence felt here in South Florida weather wise, but fishing wise, the bite is just what us Fort Lauderdale fisherman anticipated. A few cold fronts have come and gone and brought much more to the table than just wind and rain; a solid bite afterwards!

[Fort Lauderdale,FL] November fishing has started out with a bang and the Lady Pamela II fleet is gearing up for some serious kite fishing this season. During the height of season, 20 bites per day is common, it happens and we catch 'em. That must be how the name Sailfish Alley came about for Fort Lauderdale, Florida!
[Fort Lauderdale,FL] It may not be snowing or below 50, but between the north winds, the blue water and thousands of bait fish, it sure does feel like winter has arrived in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
