Exploring the bountiful Florida waters is at the top of the list for many anglers and booking a charter with Fox Sea Sport Fishing is one of the best ways to make that dream come true! Their seasoned and knowledgeable local crew with over 20 years of experience is there to make your trip memorable.

Captain Charles Gambrill invites you for an incredible fishing experience aboard his fully equipped and tournament rigged 53’ custom Hatteras offshore sportfishing boat located right on Fort Lauderdale beach at Bahia Mar. Powered by twin 600 HP Detroit Diesel 1271 engines, it can take up to 6 anglers fishing in full comfort.

The vessel is fully air-conditioned with a spacious salon, full galley, and clean restrooms. Full navigational electronics, a large cockpit with three fighting chairs, and two livewells will help you find and land your dream catch in the most efficient and comfortable way possible.

Speaking of the catch, you’ll have a wide range of choice – go after Sailfish, Mahi, Sharks, Wahoo, Snapper, Kingfish, Bonita, and the occasional Marlin. And this is just the beginning of the list. The captain will take you up to 5 miles from the coast and show you the hottest spots with the highest potential of landing various cool species.

The charter features top of the line tackle, from light spinning to heavy big game equipment by prominent brands such as Shimano and Penn. You’ll be supplied with live bait, lures, and dead bait. Live bait will be waiting for you on board stored in two tanks or you’ll get a chance to catch it yourself during the trip.

The first mate will gladly clean and fillet the catch for your convenience and 20% gratuity for his efforts is customary. You’re free to bring any drinks and snacks of your choosing.

Fox Sea Sport Fishing caters to all experience levels, from tournament anglers to novices and everyone in between. Kids aged 5 and older are always welcome – the captain will make sure their first fishing trip is unforgettable.
