Fort Lauderdale Fishing

It’s some of the most famous fishing in the world. That’s partly due to the location. Because it's in South Florida, the weather is warm year-round, and that means warm surrounding waters. Even more important, Fort Lauderdale benefits from the "super highway for fish" known as the Gulf Stream. Not only is the water in the Stream warm and welcoming, it's also nutrient rich. At many points along the eastern coast of the U.S., you have to travel miles and miles just to get to deep water. At Fort Lauderdale, however, the Gulf Stream flows incredibly close to the shore. In fact, large predatory fish often migrate just a mile or two off the beach, and the middle of the Stream is only about fifteen miles offshore.

In addition to the deep blue waters of the Gulf Stream, Fort Lauderdale fishing includes other types of marine habitats that fish love - everything from deep wrecks and reefs to clear, shallow water. Don't worry – your experienced fishing guides know where the fish are because they fish these waters regularly - usually on a daily basis. You get to have a blast taking full advantage of their knowledge and expertise.

Fort Lauderdale fishing is amazing all year, and your guides know which time of the year is best for individual fish species. Some of the most popular fish are swordfish, dolphin, wahoo, tuna, marlin, sailfish, cobia, snapper, grouper, kingfish, amberjack, and several species of sharks. Several methods are used for locating and landing big fish. These might include trolling, bottom fishing, drift fishing, anchor fishing, or even kite fishing. Your guides offer daytime fishing and nighttime fishing. Night fishing is prime for big swordfish, along with reef fish like yellow tail snapper, mutton snapper, cobia, and grouper.

Customer Comments

"Just wanted to take a minute to send you a thank you for the wonderful charter we had with you. I will always remember my 1st sailfish caught with you just minutes after getting started on that beautiful Wednesday morning. Your professionalism was evident from the start with all of the preparation before we even set foot on the boat...everything was handled in a smooth and calm fashion even though we had several multiple hook-ups. Fishing on this particular morning was productive and the resulting dinners were enjoyable. Your hospitality was appreciated and your knowledgeable and coaching was always helpful and welcome. Again thanks and I look forward to future opportunities." – Robert from Maryland

"Our London group had a great time with the Mahi Mahi, the two girls where catching one right after another. Dad got lucky and was able to get two away from them. They really had a great time and felt like they received VERY personalized service. We look forward to seeing you again on our next trip to Fort Lauderdale." – Family from London, England

"I can't tell you what an exciting day we had yesterday with Terry and Eddie! We loved fishing with you and my grandson Sawyer can't wait to go again.
