Ft Lauderdale Offshore

Get ready to experience the thrill of deep sea sportfishing with Ft Lauderdale Offshore! Captain Will Howard specializes in trolling and bottom fishing, offering full day trips as well as multi-day excursions on his luxurious Bimini Center Console.

His boat is the ideal vessel for an offshore expedition. She comes with downriggers, a live bait tank, state-of-the-art Connley fishing tackle, safety gear, and Simrad navigational electronics. She’s got plenty of walkaround room for 6 people to fish at the same time and a cover over the center console for shade.

Captain Will will take you trolling and bottom fishing along some of the best spots on the coast. Offshore trolling is fast, intense, and challenging as you’ll be chasing big game fish such as Tuna, Mahi, Wahoo, Cobia, Kingfish, and more!

You’ll be fishing between 3–10 miles from shore and it only takes about 15–20 minutes to reach the ideal spot. This maximizes the time you’ll be fishing and increases your chances of success! You can even target Sailfish and cool Shark species such as Bull, Tiger, Hammerhead, Bonnethead, and many others!

Reef fishing trips are just as exciting and appetizing as you’ll be targeting some delicious bottom-dwellers such as Grouper and Snapper. You can also catch Amberjack, Shark, Wahoo, and other species that like to feed off of the bottom of reefs and wrecks.

Captain Will provides more experienced anglers with the opportunity to do some vertical jigging, popping, and kite fishing as well. You can also deep sea fish, spin, drift, use light tackle for a challenge, or take out the big guns for the heavy-weight champs! It’s your trip so it’s up to you.

Everything you need is covered, including your Florida Fishing License. You’ll also have a first mate to help you with anything fishing related. Just pack some snacks, drinks, sunblock, and sunglasses and you’re all set. Join in on the deep sea action with Ft Lauderdale Offshore and get ready to have the time of your life!
