    This trip is for our early riser customers, its nice because you get first pass on most spots and beat the boat traffic. Also many species of fish like to feed in the dawn hours of the day. We can target your pelagic fish like Wahoo, Tuna and Sailfish or fish the deep wrecks for Amberjacks and big groupers or snappers for dinner.

    5 hours of fishing off the coast of Fort Lauderdale. It gives us plenty of time to do a couple of different techniques to target what is biting on that day. We can troll for Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Wahoo. We can also bottom fish on shallow and deep reefs and wrecks for snapper, grouper, amberjacks, and sharks. In the fall and spring time we also will drift with live baits out all over the water column and catch Sailfish and mahi one second and a big shark or grouper the next bite!
