Corsair Sportfishing

Corsair Sportfishing specializes in second to none angling experience. This boat is run by Captain Luis Pino, who has over three decades of local knowledge. Join him aboard his boat and explore deep sea fishing opportunities.

Capt. Luis knows the best fishing grounds and honey holes in and around Fort Lauderdale. His Corsair Sportfishing targets a variety of species and offers a comprehensive service to anglers of all skill levels.

Test yourself in trolling, try kite fishing in the fall and winter months. Bottom fish, target Sharks and enjoy big game fishing. Capt. Luis and his crew use modern equipment and attractive, custom-made lures to help you get the most out of your fishing trip.

With an experienced local captain and a friendly mate, you have all the chances to make a great catch possible. You will be fishing 2-10 miles offshore for Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Kingfish, various types of Tuna, and Wahoo. If you are a big fan of fangs, target Hammerhead, Tiger, and Mako Sharks. There’s always something biting!

You will go out aboard the ‘Corsair,’ a 46’ Hatteras that is decked out thoroughly for all your fishing needs. She can reach the best fishing grounds quickly and in style. The Corsair comes powered by two Detroit engines with 780 HP combined.

The Corsair has plenty of fishing space for up to six anglers. She is fully outfitted with electronics, tools, and accessories to put you on fish. Inside and outside, the Corsair has all the comfort of home.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, and licenses. The deckhand will clean your catch at the end of the trip.
