Come fishing in one of the most unique areas in the world with Lucky Hook Charters! Captain Jorge Fernandez has been fishing in the area for over 20 years and he has brought his skill to perfection. He can take you fishing all the way from North Miami Beach to the Upper Florida Keys and out to the Gulf Stream. These spots bring a wide range of fishing opportunities.
     
“The Short Timer” is a 28’ custom build fish around that enables 360 degrees of unobstructed fishing. She accommodates up to 4 anglers and she’s powered by twin 300 HP Mercury Verado engines. This fishing machine’s renowned hull will get you to the fishing grounds fast, dry, and comfortable.

Your captain will provide you with conventional and spin fishing gear for any convenience. Whether you decide to go bottom bouncing for Snapper and Grouper, live baiting for Kingfish and Sailfish, trolling the Gulf Stream for Wahoo and Mahi Mahi, or fishing Biscayne Bay for Sea Trout and Spanish Mackerel – they have the right bait and tackle. The season will usually dictate what can be caught and on which fishing spot.

A successful fishing day does not end at the marina – it ends in a restaurant! Capt. Jorge will clean, fillet, and bag your catch and you can have it prepared in a local restaurant.

Pack your lunch, recharge your camera, and come fishing with The Lucky Hook!
