Summer Inshore Saltwater Charters/Daytona/Orlando

May 1st, 2011

April has had a great steady bite and super weather with Seatrout continuing to be my main attraction. However with summer coming soon we will be hunting Redfish again on Mosquito Lagoon. The Reds will begin to spread out in small schools and single fish again as the water warms, fishing with live and fresh cut baitfish will become the main technique for Reds. The flats of Mosquito Lagoon will be alive with large schools of mullet which attract the attention of Reds and Trout as the grazing baitfish flush shrimp and baby crabs out of the grassy bottom making for easy meals for the game fish. Backcountry mixed bag fishing also remains good through the summer for a more easy going style of fishing catching lots of different types of saltwater fish. Here are a couple of pictures of clients from recent charter trips, Lorin with a great Seatrout and Dr Ray and Jeff with a double on hard fighting Jack Crevalle.

Come fish with me on beautiful Mosquito Lagoon, summer is coming soon with its beautiful calm mornings and the surface of the inshore saltwater lagoon is alive with marine life. By late morning we usually have a great cooling easterly sea breeze which feels great on a summer day. As we are out hunting for fun saltwater fish we will be seeing lots of wildlife up close and personal near the boat with Dolphins and Manatees on just about every trip. If you are looking for a little challenge, we will go for Redfish and Seatrout on the grass flats by sight fishing in 1 to 2 feet of water, as I pole my boat over the clear shallow waters, we will hunt for Mosquito Lagoon Redfish. If you are looking for a more laid back trip, summer is a great time to try one of my Indian River Backcountry trips in the north end of the Lagoon, this is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, & other saltwater fish. On the average summer Backcountry trip we catch 10 to 15 or more different species of fish. You never know what will bite with this type of fishing, mainly drift fishing while free lining live shrimp on light tackle make for lots of rod bending and drag pulling. Fun for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish.
. We will pick the best choice of which type trip will be the best for “catching” on your day out with me depending on your preferences for a fun day.

Spring Inshore Charters/Daytona/NewSmyrna/Orlando/Florida

March 31st, 2011

Backcountry fishing has been really great this March here on Mosquito Lagoon, we have been targeting the northern Lagoon backwaters at Edgewater. The spring shrimp run has the game fish keying in on live shrimp which has been our bait of choice on light spinning tackle. Seatrout have been one of the main targets with several slot sized Trout in the 15” to 20” range on most trips, also on some trips a couple of nice keeper size Black Drum or Redfish. The Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, & Bluefish have also been biting well which keeps the action fast on most trips. Here are a couple of recent fish pictures of clients. Chris was out with her husband Ray on a great fun trip with lots of fish, she is holding her best Seatrout of the morning in this pic. Other picture with one of the Black Drum caught on a Backcountry trip a few days ago..

Come fish with me on beautiful Mosquito Lagoon, spring is a great time to try one of my Indian River Backcountry trips in the north end of the Lagoon, this is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Bluefish, & other saltwater fish. On the average springtime Backcountry trip we catch 10 or more different species of fish. You never know what will bite with this type of fishing, mainly drift fishing while free lining live shrimp on light tackle make for lots of rod bending and drag pulling. Fun for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish.
If you are looking for more of a challenge, we will go for Redfish and Seatout on the grass flats by sight fishing in 1 to 2 feet of water, as I pole my boat over the clear shallow waters, we will hunt for Mosquito Lagoon Redfish, this type of fishing is best done with prime weather of calm and clear conditions.
We will pick the best choice of which type trip will be the best for “catching” on your day out with me depending on conditions for that day.

Fort Lauderdale Fishing Report

Lady Pamela II Sport Fishing Charters

www.ladypamela2.com

954-761-8045

March 11th, 2011

Today was a full day of fishing for the Lady Pamela II Fishing Fleet. Aboard the Lady Pamela IV with Captain Paul and me, we had two trips. Our morning trip was a group of doctors from Minnesota. Conditions for Sailfish Fishing were perfect. Once we hit open water, we sat right out in front of Port Everglades and began live bait kite fishing. Within the first hour of fishing, Mike hooked up with a non-cooperative Sailfish that released itself just 25 ft from the boat. It was a bummer losing the Sailfish so close, but the group did get to see the Sailfish in action, jumping all over the ocean. The north wind and south current told us it was time to stop at the shipwrecks and see “who was home”, so to speak. Bait was extremely difficult to catch, although we boated a single bait fish. The baitfish wasn’t in the boat for long. We dropped it down and ended the day with a 25 lb Barracuda while fishing in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Things were starting to look up for the afternoon trip. Mark and Megan from Dallas joined Donnie from Tennessee with Captain Paul and me. We ran south to Dania pier, set the Shark fishing, and Sail fishing spread out in 110 ft of water. The Lady Pamela I was also looking for the bite live bait kite fishing. Thirty minutes into kite fishing, I got a call from a fishing friend with great news. We packed up and headed offshore to 700 ft of deep blue water and a rippin north current. I called the Lady Pamela I and they weren’t too far behind us. Within just 20 minutes into live bait kite fishing in deeper water, Donnie hooked a nice size Sailfish and fought him all the way to the boat. Tag and release was expertly performed and we went on our way after a few high fives. The Lady Pamela I went 2 for 2 on the Sailfish bite and spotted 3 more fish free jumping. The Mahi – Mahi showed their faces with the Sailfish as well. Fishing in Fort Lauderdale was a great this afternoon.

March 12th, 2011

Travis, Mike, John and a few others came fishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV early this morning. The past few days of fishing have been great, with a very nice edge in 750 ft of water. I explained what was happening offshore and the gang decided to buy a dozen goggle eyes for live bait kite fishing. Within 30 minutes of fishing offshore, we caught a 10 lb Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi) on the kite bait. New bait went out and another Mahi-Mahi ate. Two hours before the trip was over, we hooked a double header Mahi-Mahi. After 15 minutes, Travis’ Dolphin was in the fish box while Mike’s Mahi-Mahi was still fighting. Fourty-five minutes later, Mike’s 35 lb Dolphin was gaffed and inside of the cockpit. It wasn’t long before the feisty Dolphin jumped OUT of the cockpit and back into the blue. On the way back inshore I was riding in the tower and spotted a Leather Back Turtle with a school of Cobia. JACKPOT! I quickly spun the boat around and we pitched live goggle eyes into the crowd. A double header was on the line in no time. We called it a day with 6 chunky Cobia.

Fishing in Fort Lauderdale is fantastic right now – don’t get left onshore, call today 954-761-8045

Spring Mosquito Lagoon/daytona/Orlando/NewSmyrna

March 10th, 2011

Spring has arrived early this March 2011 in East Central Florida, water levels are up on Mosquito Lagoon as well as water temperatures. Redfish schools have spread out through the flats among the islands in the northern Lagoon with the higher water. Schools of bait fish are starting to return from the south and along with them migrating game fish coming back into our backcountry area. We are also having a great early spring Seatrout bite, along with Bluefish, Ladyfish, and also a few Flounder. The backcountry fishing will only get better as calender spring finally arrives and the mixed bag fishing will get into full swing. A couple of pictures from 2 recent charter trips, Richard with a great redfish from his trip with his friend Jim, they caught quite a few good reds on their day. Other picture is Brian and Otto with a Redfish double, also from a great trip with several Reds.

Come fish with me on beautiful Mosquito Lagoon for flats fishing, we will target Redfish and Seatrout. This type of sight fishing can be challenging and very rewarding when you hook up with a drag pulling Redfish,or Trout. Good for experienced anglers or the less experienced anglers looking for a new fishing challenge. Or you could try one of my Indian River Backcountry Fishing trips, that is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Bluefish, Snapper, & many more saltwater fish. On the average Backcountry trip we catch between 10 and 15 (or more) different species of saltwater fish.You never know what will bite with this type of fishing, mainly drift fishing while free lining live shrimp on light tackle make for lots of rod bending and drag pulling. Fun for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish.

Fort Lauderdale Swordfishing

Lady Pamela II Sportfishing Charters

www.ladypamela2.com

954-761-8045

February 4th, 2011

Scott, Bobby, Daren and I went nighttime Swordfishing aboard the Lady Pamela IV on Friday night. Scott and Bobby are in South Florida from Panama on a business trip for a Viking Yacht Preview Show. Scott said in Panama, the squids eat your bait before a Swordfish could even have a chance; Scott decided he’d try his luck in Fort Lauderdale. We left the dock at 6:30 PM and made it to our destination around 8 PM. For bait, we used live bluerunners and dead squid. It wasn’t long before our 100 ft tip rod (which was under the light) bait was getting whacked. The live bluerunner was getting hit hard, but the fish never hooked itself. I reeled it up and the bait was gone. I added fresh bait and dropped it back down. Five minutes didn’t pass before we were hooked up with a nice size Swordfish. Bobby began the fight on the 130 penn, before the hooks pulled. We made a move to the south, set up for round two and Darin came tight on our second bait. Bobby reeled in a 73″ Pumpkin Swordfish, weighing in at 180 lb’s. (Pumpkin meaning the meat is orange…and tasty!)

Florida Winter Seatrout/MosquitoLagoon/Daytona/Orlando

January 29th, 2011

The Seatrout fishing has been great this January 2011 on Mosquito Lagoon. We have been targeting the deeper holes and sloughs with Gulp shrimp jigs and live shrimp fished right on the bottom in the cold 50’ F water conditions. On most trips the last couple weeks the fish count has been from 40 to 75 fish, mostly Trout, also a good numbers of fun small size baby Redfish, with a few Flounder and Black Drum thrown in the mix. Most trips have had several or more keeper Trout with many smaller trout also in the count. Lots of fun fishing on light spin tackle and mostly artificial lure fishing. On the low wind days we are also targeting the shallow flats Redfish schools, a fun but challenging sight fishing tactic for better size Redfish.
Here are a couple of pictures of clients with the winter Seatrout we have been catching this month.
As Florida spring time arrives and the water begins to warm up a little, we will also start to do backcountry mixed bag fishing trips again for Seatrout, and Redfish, but also catching Bluefish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Jacks, Ladyfish, and more species. You never know what type of saltwater fish you will pull up. This style of fishing on the mixed bag trips is mainly drift fishing and bottom fishing while free lining live shrimp and Gulp shrimp on light tackle which make for lots of rod bending fun. Good for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish.

Winter Redfish/Daytona/NewSmyrna/MosquitoLagoon/Florida

December 27th, 2010

December 2010 has brought early winter conditions to East Central Florida with several below freezing nights and very cold water temperatures before the first day of winter. I am pictured with a frosty morning Redfish taken on a scouting trip right after the cold spell began. After the Reds and Trout got used to the cold water temps down in the high 40’s and low 50’s on the cold mornings, our early winter pattern of schooled up fish in the sand sloughs and pockets began to be the go to fishing style. On the beautiful sunny post cold front days we are also finding larger sized Redfish schooled up on the shallow flats looking for some warmer water in the sunshine. Lately I have had several charter trips with catches of 50 to 100 plus fish, mixed Redfish, Trout, and a few Flounder mainly from the sand sloughs. Most of the Reds have been “fun to catch on light tackle”, smaller fish around 15” to 20”, but many of the Trout have been quality fish up to 17” to 20”, with lots of smaller sized mixed in also. These numbers of fish are exceptional for fun catch and release fishing, but the Seatrout season will reopen after New Years Day so we can start to keep some for dinner again. The trip catch numbers of fish will begin to be lower at some point through the winter as the big totals as of late are the exception not the rule. But fun fishing will continue here on Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River. The other picture is client Steve from Connecticut with a beautiful 14 spot Redfish.

Come fish with me on beautiful Mosquito Lagoon for flats fishing, we will target Redfish and Seatrout. This type of sight fishing can be challenging and very rewarding when you hook up with a drag pulling Redfish,or Trout. Good for experienced anglers or the less experienced anglers looking for a new fishing challenge. Or you could try one of my Indian River Backcountry Fishing trips, on WINTER mixed bag fishing trips we catch mainly Seatrout, Redfish, Bluefish, Sheepshead, & Black Drum, the style of fishing on the mixed trips is mainly drift fishing and bottom fishing while free lining live shrimp on light tackle which make for lots of rod bending. Fun for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish. Lots more different species of fish return to our area in the springtime.

Sailfish Fishing in Palm Beach aboard the Lady Pamela fleet

December 13th & 14th, 2010

Sailfish Fishing in Palm Beach

I have spent the past two days sailfish fishing with a few of my repeat customers in Palm Beach on our 31′ Yellowfin Center Console. Goggle eyes, threadfins and pilchards were readily available for us both Monday and today. Yesterday (Monday), we ran to Lake Worth pier and set 6 baits and 2 flat lines. Within the first 30 minutes, Drew caught Sailfish #1 in 130 ft of water. We moved to 150 ft of water and waited for an hour before we saw a “flopper” (jumping Sailfish) in 300 ft of water. We quickly picked up and ran to where I thought they might be and before we could blink, Drew, Matt, Brian and Brandon were all hooked up. Four Sailfish on at once is exciting. After we caught all four Sailfish, we set back up and lost one before calling it a day.

Monday = 5 Sailfish

Tuesday morning was brutally cold; 37 degrees with a wind chill of 25 and steam coming off the water surface. Our fishing spot yesterday produced so we went back to the pier and set up in 130 ft of water. We missed a sailfish right away and within 45 minutes we hooked a triple header. Drew’s sailfish pulled the hook and fell off immediately. Matt and I fought ’til the end and caught both fish. We ran in to shallower water and set up in 110 ft.  Matt pitched a spinner rod and hooked a sailfish right away. Matt caught his fish and the rest of our spread went out. Twenty minutes later, Matt jumped off another sailfish and we called it a day catching 4 sailfish out of 8 bites.

Tuesday = 4 Sailfish

December Daytime Swordfishing in Fort Lauderdale – BIG FISH & GREAT PICTURES!

December 1st, 2010

Today was a great day for the Lady Pamela fishing fleet. One of our smaller boats, a 27′ Ocean Master center console, went daytime swordfishing to see if the cold front would make them snap. The cold front was expected to move through around 3 PM, so Mike left the dock at 8 AM sharp. Around 9 PM, Mike was sitting in fertile grounds and made his first drop in 1,800 ft of water with Dolphin belly. Our first drop didn’t attract any Swordfish so we made a move to the south. Our second drop of the day provided a 2 ½ hour battle with a big Broadbill Swordfish. The current was kicking at 2 knots with a S SW wind. When the fish came to the surface, Brett threw the harpoon as Mike gaffed the Swordfish. When we got the tail rope on the fish, he went nuts. I had to call over another boat to help us get this monster fish in the boat. It took 5 of us to get the 450 lb’er in our 27 footer. Nice fish with a 103″ fork length.

Lady Pamela Sportfishing Charters is starting off the new year right (and early!) with a new location and a new addition, the Lady Pamela IV!

Mosquito Lagoon Redfish/Daytona/NewSmyrna/Orlando/Florida

November 29th, 2010

December is almost here and I have had some great trips during the end of November 2010 on Mosquito Lagoon Florida. On a charter with cousins Frank and Joe from West Palm Beach and Pennsylvania respectively we caught 10 Redfish including the 30” beauty Frank is holding in the picture, also caught several Seatrout along the way. On another trip a few days later Donovan and his friend Doug from Daytona Beach caught 6 big Reds along with 8 more smaller ones. Here is a picture of them with a double they landed at the same time on this chilly windy cold front day.

Come fish with me on beautiful Mosquito Lagoon for flats fishing, we will target Redfish and Seatrout. This type of sight fishing can be challenging and very rewarding when you hook up with a drag pulling Redfish,or Trout. Good for experienced anglers or the less experienced anglers looking for a new fishing challenge. Or you could try one of my Indian River Backcountry Fishing trips, that is mixed bag fishing for Seatrout, Redfish, Black Drum, Jack Crevalle, Ladyfish, Bluefish, Snapper, & many more saltwater fish. On the average Backcountry trip we catch between 10 and 15 (or more) different species of saltwater fish.You never know what will bite with this type of fishing, mainly drift fishing while free lining live shrimp on light tackle make for lots of rod bending and drag pulling. Fun for experienced anglers and an easy way for less experienced anglers to be successful at catching lots of fish.
