They say if you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he'll stop bobbing for guppies in your aquarium. Set your sights on more sizeable swimmers with today's Groupon: for $22, you get a four hour fishing trip with Lady Pamela II Sportfishing Charters, located on Southeast 17th Street (a $45 value).
The experienced mariners at Lady Pamela II enable aspiring rod-jockeys to reel in a mix of fish, sun, and comfort. Anglers will embark on an aquatic excursion stretching from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., or 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. outfitted with all the requisite licensing, tackle, bait, and more, cruising the waves aboard the spacious Lady Pamela III in search of mankind's greatest and most delicious enemy, fish. Expeditions often linger amid the reefs around Ft. Lauderdale, where minnows and monsters often live side by side without ever saying a word to each other. During the four hour stretch patrolling the waters, reel wranglers may also encounter amberjacks and grouper.
Custom built by Stapleton Boat Works, the Lady Pamela III, which is licensed and inspected by the U.S. Coast Guard, comes bedecked with the latest in gill-tracking tech. The arsenal of equipment, tools, and amenities ranges from GPS satellite navigation and tri-color fish-finding sonar to live-bait tanks, shaded seating, and pristine restrooms, keeping cruisers comfy and one step ahead of even the craftiest and most highly educated fish.
Fanntastic Fishing's Captain Steve Souther steers his newly-renovated custom-built Hatteras through the waters of Fort Lauderdale, and even miles out from shore, he and his passengers find what they're looking for: fish. Transporting anglers from across the country out across the gentle waves, Captain Souther aids his guests in their quest to snag marine life both big and small, from tuna, snapper, grouper, and mahi-mahi to large swimmers such as swordfish, sailfish, and sharks.
