Fish Lauderdale

1005 Seabreeze Boulevard
Fort Lauderdale FL, United States

Fish Lauderdale connects both novice anglers and experienced professionals with fantastic fishing opportunities in Florida. Captain Chris and his crew will put you on top of the hot bite and prove that there is hardly anything better than fishing with the locals.

One of the best things about the area is that you don’t have to travel too far out to enjoy the bite. The best fishing is right there in the backyard! You won’t lose sight of shore and will be able to enjoy the view in between the bites. However, keep in mind that you will be pretty busy!

Fish Lauderdale specializes in various techniques that work best. Go for the most popular method and troll with bait or lures for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Bonito.

If you want to present live bait in a different method, you can enjoy kite fishing for Sailfish, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, and Shark. Daytime Swordfishing is another thing that can excite even the die-hard anglers.

But if you are after great table fare, let the captain take you bottom and wreck fishing. Use live bait, dead bait, and jigs to produce Snapper and Grouper. Deep down bait on a shipwreck for giant Amberjack. Anchor up with a small rod to catch Yellowtail Snapper. You can catch them less than 10 minutes from the inlet!

All of that magic happens about the ‘Monster,’ a 42’ Post offshore sport fishing boat. Her twin 400 HP Detroit Diesels will power you to the hottest grounds quickly and safely. The Monster is fully rigged with the latest fishing tackle and electronics available on the market. She is equipped with everything you need to have a successful trip!

The crew are all Florida and Fort Lauderdale natives. They have been mastering the local waters all their lives and can show you the most productive spots. You will be provided with tackle, gear, licenses, lures, and live bait. The crew will be happy to clean your catch so it can go straight into the frying pan. All aboard!

    South Florida is the playground for swordfishermen. Not only have we been able to hone in on them during the night, we are crushing them during the day. It opens up a whole new window of species to catch as well. We also regularly catch Mahi Mahi, Tripletail, Wahoo, and Tuna as by-catch on these specialized charters.

    The Broadbill Swordfish is one of the hardest fighting fish in the ocean. We are fortunate enough to have some of the most fertile waters in the world for catching Swordfish. Trips leave about an hour before sunset and usually last about 8 hours (through the night). Sometimes we get lucky and get it done in half the time. This trip is mostly designed for the seasoned angler, but we can teach anyone.

    This is our 'big kahuna' as far as day trips are concerned. The trip includes 8 hours of hardcore fishing for you and up to five of your guests. You will be able to troll the reef for Tuna, Kingfish, and Sailfish, bottom fish, go for kite fishing and try other productive techniques.

    The 3/4 day trip is the perfect blend of being able to spend a good portion of the day on the water, and still, make it back for lunch to enjoy your fresh catch. The extra couple of hours enables us to go a little further North or South to focus on some of the many shipwrecks that are close to our shores. If offshore bluewater fishing is your game, this is also a great option. The 3/4 day trip enables us to head a little further offshore to find those big game species you want.

    We will spend much of our trip trolling the blue water just beyond the reef. Live baiting, kite fishing, and trolling is the name of the game when you are targeting big fish like the ones we have here in Fort Lauderdale depending on the season. The extra hour that is included in the extended half day charter allows us to switch up our tactics a bit to keep your group happy and excited!

I am a second generation charter fishing guide. I was also born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, which gives me a little bit of an advantage over a few of the other guys. I became a Fisherman because it is something I find that I love doing. No matter what type of fishing I'm doing, I love it. With that being said, who wouldn't want to do what they love everyday and get paid for it? Seemed like a simple choice to me.
