All Good Charters

Setting off from Fort Lauderdale, All Good Charters offers both inshore and offshore fishing for all levels. The diverse waters are home to a range of species and here you’ll be able to explore them all. With Captain Matthew Schenk, you’ll be in the hands of a native to these waters. His knowledge of the area is rivaled only by his passion and he’s determined to give everyone the same opportunities he had when young.

In traversing both the shallow and deeper waters, you’ll be on a 20’ Privateer center console boat, newly-restored in 2018. This boat gives you the ultimate 360 degree view of the waters and allows you to move freely when struggling against a big catch. The boat is powered by an economic 130 HP Honda engine, reaching speeds of up to 28 knots, but allowing Capt. Matthew to keep costs down.

Inshore trips will see you pursue reefs where species such as Mangrove, Mutton, and Yellowtail Snappers like to hide. If you head out on one of the offshore trips, you’ll be targeting some equally tasty fish like Mahi Mahi and Blackfin Tuna. The boat comes equipped with top of the range rods and reels from Penn, Saint Croix, and Shimano. If you have some experience, you can check out one of the spearfishing trips. All equipment will be provided and you can even hunt lobster when in season!

Children over the age of 5 are welcome aboard and Capt. Matthew will give them a helping hand to master the art of fishing early on. Waters and sodas are provided to all, free of charge, and any fish you’d like to take home with you will be prepared on return to the marina. That’s fun, sport, and dinner provided by All Good Charters. What more could you want?

Growing up in the Chesapeake Bay, all Captain Matthew Schenk wanted to do as a kid was fish. Not much has changed and he's been lucky enough to realise his dream, taking advantage of the year-round inshore and offshore fishery in South Florida. With such a passion for fishing, he's determined to ensure that everyone who comes along enjoys their trip and he's more than happy to pass on his chumming, drifting, jigging, and trolling skills to anglers of all levels.
