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!

Please, have in mind that live bait is not included in the price.

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. 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.

Mahi on a glassed out day
Mahi on a glassed out day
May 6, 2021
We trolled first thing this morning and got a nice king than shot offshore looking for mahi. After about an hour of no luck running around checking a few weedlines i spotted three birds working the surface and we hustled right over to them to find a school of small mahi that had some bait balled up. We caught about ten before they were spooked on the live bait and 4 were legal fish. Trolled a bit with no luck and than found another school this time casting artificials at them. We ended up with 5 or 6 more fish all throwbacks but always excited to see them out there. Yesterday we found a school in 150' today 850' so you just never know.
Opening day for grouper!

Grouper season opened up today and we got out there and did some freediving early in the morning. I shot the first of the day, a nice red, and a friend of mine shot a big gag after a short chase. After we were tired from all the diving we went offshore with some live bait for mahi and ended up with a sailfish instead! We fought the fish for 35min on light tackle and after allmost getting it close enough to grab for a pic about 5 seperate times he finally broke the leader. Still an awesome fish to catch on light tackle spinning gear.
Sailfish and more today!
Sailfish and more today!
April 12, 2021
We had a late start due to the weather this morning but got a few bonito trolling and we put some live baits out and got a bonito on a flatline and a kingfish on the bottom. The sailfish hit a flatline on a light setup and took us for a nice ride before coming to the boat for a few quick pics and a safe release!
