Capt. Taco’s Hooked Up Sportfishing

801 Seabreeze Blvd
Fort Lauderdale FL, United States

Hi, My name is Taco.

I’ve been fishing the waters in South Florida since the mid 70’s in the canals and intercoastal waterways, for Snook, Tarpon, Jacks and whatever I could get to bite my hook. When I got older, I bought myself a 25’ Open Fisherman and started fishing the waters off the Ft. Lauderdale coast. As time went on, I started asking some of the local fishermen questions about South Florida fishing techniques and different strategies for catching fish and was soon catching more and more.

Before I knew it I had people asking me questions about sport fishing. In fact, I started taking more people fishing on my charter boat, at my expense. Then one day, my wife suggested I try to get a job on one of the South Florida sport fishing charter boats.

So off I went to fish the Bahamas Blue Marlin tournaments with Captain Paul Roadhouse. After a few fishing tournaments we hit the jackpot and won one of the Bahamas Bill Fish Tournaments, and I was hooked! So, I started traveling to St. Thomas, Turk and Caicos, Mexico, Venezuela and all through the Bahamas. It was great and I was catching more and bigger fish than I ever imagined I would. But it was taking its toll on my marriage.I came back to the Ft. Lauderdale fishing charter docks and landed a great job on the Happy Day Today.

After 7 + years on the Happy Day Today, I knew the time had come for me to start my own charter business in South Florida, and I am loving every minute of it. I have combined the experience of over 6 different captains I have the utmost respect for, and my knowledge and crazy personality to make my charter boat a huge success. So, you are invited to come aboard the Hooked Up, but be prepared for a lot of laughs and some great South Florida sport fishing!

Taco is very knowledgeable and honest. He makes sure that my fishing trip across the state of FL is worth every penny. I would recommend him to all skill levels. I look forward to my next trip.
