Hook’n Up Sportfishing offers the perfect range of trips to get the most out of Florida’s deep, Atlantic Coast. From half-day taster sessions to multi-day sportfishing extravaganzas, you won’t find a better mix of trips to choose from. And with over two decades of offshore experience, you won’t find a better captain to take you out than Capt. John.

Launching out of Jupiter, FL, you don’t have to travel far to hit the deep sea fishing grounds. Hook’n Up Sportfishing makes the most of this, offering four-hour offshore trips targeting Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, and other ocean hunters. Head out for a little longer, and you can also find Sailfish, Wahoo, and monster Sharks.

But that’s not all. Capt. John specializes in running multi-day Bahamas adventures and overnight Swordfishing trips. These charters both offer some of the toughest sportfishing in the Atlantic, but they couldn’t be more different.

Swordfish are one of the most punishing species to catch, battling for hours just to get them to the surface. The Bahamas are much more relaxed, but the journey there will involve trolling for Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and more, so you definitely won’t get bored!

Whatever you’re after, Capt. John’s 50’ Tom Fexas cruiser is the dream boat to target it from. She was fully overhauled in 2017, and cruises at an incredible 25 knots. This is even more impressive when you see the amount of equipment onboard.

Full cabins, bathrooms, shower, galley - there’s no end to what you’ll find in her spacious, air-conditioned interior. Up on deck, outriggers, downriggers, fighting chairs, and tournament-grade tackle let you battle even the fiercest Billfish with confidence.

The Hook’n Up team really have thought of everything. Trips come with all you’ll need except live bait, which can be picked up at the marina at the start of the trip if you want it. So what are you waiting for? Climb aboard and get ready for the trip of a lifetime!
