Background
At 15 years old, I worked at the Lauderdale Marina fuel docks after school and over the weekends. It was there that I met many other fishermen who invited me to fish on their boats. I was young and eager and happy to go along. The following year, I worked at a tournament tackle shop and was asked to fish the Bahamas Billfish Championship. I am still involved in tournament fishing as my time allows.
Techniques
Daytime Swordfishing and kite fishing is the best type of fishing here in fort lauderdale and come spring time if you want to catch a monster shark lady pamela 2 is the boat for you.

Went fishing on Tuesday, May 3, 2016

The trip was amazing….it was everything you said it would be. Now that we are back in Canada, I can’t immediately supply photos because my son has them all. This trip was on my bucket list since I am older and it was my son’s first trip. We caught 4 King Maceral, a sword fish (catch and release) and 2 Mahi Mahi.
Regardless whether we caught any fish, Captain Steve and Joe were an absolute delight. They knew what they were doing at all times and knew the fishing grounds. Regardless of the celebrity endorsements they are the “go to guys” for an enjoyable experience and it was worth it. I would recommend it period. If any one has a question….my email is wod@rogers.com.
