Lauderdale Sportfishing Reel Legend

Join Lauderdale Sportfishing Reel Legend and explore some of the most prolific waters in Florida! Captain Mike Semko has been fishing the South Florida coast for over 40 years. He is dedicated to providing a fun, memorable, and exciting experience for you and your party.

Join him aboard the Reel Legend, a custom 41’ Hatteras offshore sportfishing boat that is tournament rigged and ready for action. Powered by twin 350 HP Detroit engines, the boat will get you to the fishing grounds in the blink of an eye. Capt. Mike can take a maximum of 6 anglers onboard as per Coast Guard regulations.

On board, you will find a large air-conditioned salon with plenty of seating, which is fitted with a multimedia system, a laptop, and Wi-Fi. The full galley includes a kitchen with a microwave, oven, stove and fridge perfect for storing your food and drinks, as well as a clean restroom with running water, and a hot shower.

Capt. Mike will provide you with top-quality Penn fishing gear, as well as live bait or artificial lures. There’s a fighting chair on board so you can battle some of those monster specimens. The captain will be happy to clean and fillet your catch for you to take straight to the table upon your return!

These waters have a lot to offer, so there’s a variety of trips you can choose from. You can opt for some thrilling kite-fishing for Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, and Tuna, trolling offshore for Wahoo, Tuna, or even Blue Marlin, or go deep-dropping with live bait for large Grouper, Amberjack, and Snapper.

This charter has brought in some of the biggest fish ever to land on the docks of Fort Lauderdale. Capt. Mike looks forward to putting you on some hard-fighting fish in these waters.

Whatever you are after, the Lauderdale Sportfishing Reel Legend crew can make it happen, so join them on your newest Florida fishing adventure!
