Fort Lauderdale FL, United States

Capt. Taco’s Hooked Up Sportfishing is your key to the best angling in South Florida. Cruise out of Fort Lauderdale and feel the connection with the waters. Fishing with Capt. Taco is a unique experience everyone should have!

Deep drop for what is around the wrecks, including Amberjack, Grouper, Cobia, and Mutton Snapper. Try kite fishing for Sailfish and get a bonus of Shark, Kingfish, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and many more.

If you are a big fan of Sharks, target these pelagic monsters in about 350 ft of water. Go for fast Mako Shark, Thresher Sharks that look like aliens, beautiful Hammerheads, Tiger Shark, Bull Shark, Blacktip… and the list just goes on!

One of the best things about the beautiful waters of Fort Lauderdale is that you don’t have to travel too far out to enjoy rod-bending action! Capt. Taco will take you trolling the reef for Kingfish and Bonito or offshore for something bigger. Cast with spinner rods for schools of Mahi Mahi, target Wahoo, Tuna, and occasional Blue Marlin.

Or get the most out of your South Florida trip and get your hands on Swordfish. Head up to 20 miles out, rig bait, and get ready for an adrenaline rush.

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.

About the Captain

Taco Perez
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States
Member since October 2014
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.

We had a fantastic morning trip with Lou and his crew.  The boat was great, equipment top notch and the crew was very helpful.  We caught some great fish which Lou Filleted and we had cooked at a great local restaurant they recommended.  Thanks for creating some great memories, we will be back.  Highly recommend these guys.
