Going fast!

Lauderdale Sport Fishing is conveniently located at Fort Lauderdale beach at the prestigious Bahia Mar Marina, Slip 119. Captain Mike Semko has been fishing the South Florida coast for over 40 years, and is dedicated to providing a fun, memorable, and exciting experience for you and your party. His fishing charters have brought in some of the biggest fish ever to land on the docks of Fort Lauderdale, and he looks forward to putting you on some hard-fighting fish in these waters.

Join him aboard the ‘Reel Legend’, a custom 41’ Hatteras Sportfisher that is tournament rigged and ready for action. The vessel features a flybridge, full tuna tower, top-quality Penn fishing gear, fighting chair, outriggers, high-tech GPS, fishfinder and VHF radio, twin 350HP Detroit V8 diesel engines, and full safety equipment. With plenty of room up on deck, including a spacious cockpit, the boat can comfortably accommodate up to six guests. Inside you will find a large air-conditioned salon with plenty of seating, which is fitted with a 40” flat screen TV, CD and DVD players, as well as a surround-sound system, laptop and Wi-Fi. The full galley includes a kitchen with microwave, oven, stove and fridge perfect for storing your food and drinks, as well as a clean restroom with running water, and hot shower.

Capt. Mike and the crew are happy to customize each fishing trip to your desires. Choose between some thrilling kite-fishing for Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna and other game fish, trolling offshore for Dolphin, Wahoo, Tuna or possibly even Blue Marlin, or go deep-dropping with live baits for large Grouper, Amberjack and Snapper. Trips include the use of rods, reels and tackle, lures, fishing license, cleaning and bagging of your catch, as well as sunscreen and bottled water.

Whatever you are after, the Lauderdale Sport Fishing crew can make it happen!
