Fort Lauderdale - Saltwater Fishing Report
What a crazy June it has been here at Lady Pamela Sportfishing. We have been fishing 3 trips daily going non-stop. Our new customers have been absolutely incredible to fish with. We also had the opportunity to fish with many repeat customers which is what our business is all about. And our junior anglers off for summer break are doing amazing at reeling in trophy game fish while learning about our fishery and conservation.
As we leave the marina each day, the seas have been flat calm with hot and steamy temperatures. The early morning trips and evening trips have been doing the best for those that want to hide from the heat. Each day is different, but one thing that remains the same is the amount of seaweed still in our area. I haven't seen this much seaweed in years. It is pretty incredible and we have been using it to our advantage to find the fish.
Rescue At Sea!
And to top it all off, we saved several people from a burning charter boat! Captain Gino and mate Sean did an amazing job getting the crew off the burning vessel to ours before she sank shortly after off Fort Lauderdale beach.Check out the full story from WPLG10. I'm so proud of our crew and happy everyone is OK.
The most consistent fishing right now is the shark fishing trips. We have been fishing for them just about daily and each trip has caught 1 and some have had multiple fish. Check out this video of a wonderful family we were lucky enough to fish with that caught 2 hammerheads after the fish swarmed the kite baits. We had it all on video!
