    You can go in the daytime or nighttime in search of Swordfish, one of the most popular and sought-after gamefish in the world. Swordfish can be found in many deep waters of the world, however, Fort Lauderdale and Miami rivals anywhere as one of the best places to hook up with the Gladiator of the Sea. They are incredibly strong and stubborn fighters with great speed. Once hooked, the average encounters last more than a few hours.

    Tarpon fishing inshore Fort Lauderdale and Miami is an experience like no other. South Florida is known as one of the top-rated areas in the world to catch Tarpon. Tarpon, also referred to as the Silver King, is one of the largest marine game fish and one of the most powerful fish, pound for pound, in the world. Not only are Tarpon strong fighters, they are impressive jumpers. On just about every hook up, these fish provide gill-rattling jumps and long reel screaming runs to get the adrenaline pumping!

At 15 years old, I worked at the Lauderdale Marina fuel docks after school and over the weekends. It was there that I met many other fishermen who invited me to fish on their boats. I was young and eager and happy to go along. The following year, I worked at a tournament tackle shop and was asked to fish the Bahamas Billfish Championship. I am still involved in tournament fishing as my time allows.
