Night Time Snapper Trip
Over the last four nights anglers on the Lady Pamela III have been going home with sore arms, and full coolers, as we have been slaying the yellowtail snapper and mangrove snapper. We have been fishing in depths from 40 to 80 feet at night anchoring up and chumming heavily. Fresh bonito and cut squid have been the baits of choice. If you are looking to bring home a nice seafood dinner, our nighttime snapper trips are the way to go.

Today saw the return of an old friend and a good day of fishing. My mate/Captain JJ returned to the Lady Pamela sportfishing team after 5 years and it was great getting back on the water with him. We had a 10 hour trip that included both fishing and listening to one of our anglers, Mr. Ellison, regale us about hunting trips to Africa and other exotic places around the globe.
We started the day catching a few bonitos and some kingfish, and some really nice gray tilefish. The tilefish are good eating, but the anglers didn't want to take any fish home, they only wanted to catch big fish. Toward the end of the day, about 15 miles north, we caught some beefy barracudas, and then hooked up an 8 ˝ foot Dusky shark. I have only caught one other Dusky shark and this was a big one. It was also a surprise catch because Dusky sharks typically migrate north in the summer and south in the winter. James was the lucky angler that caught the monster shark and we recorded all the action on a GoPro camera.
