Capt. Taco will take you out aboard the ‘Hooked Up.’ With 45’ of excellence, she comes powered by two 450 HP Cummins engines. Inside and outside, six anglers will find ample of space and can have a seat wherever they like.

Once the Hooked Up sets out, a reliable set of navigational electronics will guide you, homing in on the hottest grounds. You will be using International reels ranging from 20 to 80 lb and custom rods, built by Capt. Taco.

The action will take place outside the cockpit. There are 4 fighting chairs for those who are up to a challenge. All aboard!

The trips aboard the Hooked Up are all-inclusive. You only need to bring your own food and drinks.

Captain Taco Perez has been mastering the waters of South Florida since the mid 70’s. He fished for Jacks, Tarpon, and whatever else patrolled the canals and Intracoastal waterways. Taco’s first boat was a 25’ Open Fisherman, aboard which he explored the Ft. Lauderdale coast. Taco gained as much information as possible from local anglers, perfected his cast, and tried various techniques and fishing methods. Before he knew, people began asking him about fishing! Taco’s repertoire is not limited to the waters of South Florida. He has fished all over Mexico, Venezuela, St. Thomas, and Turk, as well as the Bahamas. He has successfully taken part in various fishing competitions, including the Bahamas Blue Marlin tournament. Now, Captain Taco has his own charter business and he is loving every minute of it.
