Captain Andy - Party Boat Fishing

(130) Going fast!
301 Seabreeze Blvd
Fort Lauderdale FL, United States

Let’s go fishing! Join Capt. Andy of Drift My Boat every single day in Fort Lauderdale on three party boat fishing trips. Their daily schedule is:

8:30am - 12:30pm
1:30pm - 5:30pm
7:30pm - 11:30pm

All their trips are $40 per person plus tax, and that includes everything you will need. Just bring your own refreshments and they will supply everything else - rods, reels, licenses, and bait.

On this boat you will go bottom fishing for Snappers, Grouper, Porgies, Grunts and other small to medium sized bottom fish.  Most fish caught are in the 1-2 pound range and they are good eating fish. You will be accompanied by an experienced captain and mate, who will guide you and take you about one mile offshore to the Fort Lauderdale reef.

This is a great boat to come out fishing in Fort Lauderdale without spending a lot of money as the cost of the charter is divided among several people.

    On this trip we go out to the reef which is about a mile offshore. Everyone lines up along the side of the boat and fishes off the side. We bottom fish for Snappers and other small to medium sized bottom fish. Our main target is Snapper which are in the 1-2 pound range. Sometimes (but certainly not always) we catch larger fish such as Kingfish or Tuna. This is a great trip to get out on the water inexpensively and hopefully catch a couple good eating fish to take home for dinner.

    Come party boat fishing at night for Snapper and Grouper. At night we anchor the boat and chum the water for the snappers and other small bottom fish. Most of the fish we catch are in the 1-2 pound range and they are mostly good eating fish. We catch Snappers, Porgies, Grunts, Grouper, Jacks and more. Our main target is Snapper, which are not big fish, but they are fun to catch and delicious. This is a great way to get out fishing inexpensively in Fort Lauderdale and have some fun.

I am a 3rd generation fisherman in Fort Lauderdale. I started in 1967 as a mate on one of the local drift boats. I fished with my dad who also worked the boat and taught me how to fish. When I was old enough, I began working as a mate on the sportfishing boats. As years past, I got my captain's license. I took a private sportfishing captain's job for about 8 years where the owner of the boat and I fished the Bahamas Billfish Championship tournaments, all through the Bahamas, Caribbean and south Florida. In 1994, I took out a $30,000 loan to buy a charter boat and start my own business, me and my sons. A couple years later, we bought a drift boat, the Catch My Drift and we've been drift fishing off the coast of Fort Lauderdale every day since. The Catch My Drift is Fort Lauderdale's largest and only air-conditioned drift boat. We run 3 trips every day and nobody fishes more than we do. There are several captains of the boat... me, my son Rod and my other son Andy, Stu and Billy.
