Shooting Star Charters
One of our top picks in Fort Lauderdale . Explore the waterways and offshore treasures of Fort Lauderdale aboard ‘Shooting Star’, a luxury 46’ foot custom Bertram. The boat is equipped with an exclusive dry exhaust system that prevents diesel fumes from coming onto the deck but sends them high into the air, away from the anglers. This rare feature makes charter trips pleasant and free from the nausea-inducing fumes that are the downside to so many sportfishing trips. The boat’s twin 750 HP engines ensure that the trip to the fishing grounds is quick and safe, leaving you with plenty of time for fishing in the well-stocked grounds around Fort Lauderdale.
A charter trip aboard ‘Shooting Star’ can also offer you a brush with fame: the boat was featured in three episodes of Miami Vice thanks to her good looks and well-maintained features. Inside the boat, the full ‘head’ (marine bathroom) offers comfort and privacy, while the salon provides space for your things and plenty of seating. As far as fishing is concerned, the boat is equipped with the full range of navigational electronics and USCG required safety equipment. Quality Shimano and Penn gear is provided on the trips to help you hook the fish of a lifetime.
It is not surprising that Fort Lauderdale is famous for its fishing. Capt. Dave will do his best to put you on to the variety of species that inhabit the area, such as Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sharks, Tarpon, Spanish Mackerel, Amberjack, Barracuda, Blue Marlin, Cobia, Dolphin, Grouper, King Mackerel, Sailfish, Swordfish, Wahoo, White Marlin, and more. He is equally happy to cater to novice and experienced anglers, providing a fun and family friendly atmosphere on board. At the same time, if you have been fishing for years he’s happy to let you get on with what you know best. If fishing’s not your thing he can even offer a luxury and informative two hour cruise around the inshore waterways of the area.

Good day out on the water. Our family first fishing charter, kids and wife liked the expierence (less the sea sickness) and crew was professional and nice, straight forward no frills fishing. Caught enough fish for a great dinner. Dry exhaust is definitely a bonus, no noxious Diesel fumes to
