Hooked Up II

There are some things in life that you look back on afterwards and still can’t believe you did it. A 3-day fishing trip to the Bahamas with Hooked Up II is definitely one of those moments. Have the most amazing time, catch a trophy fish, and make some incredible memories. Captain Taco Perez and his crew has decades of experience between them, and will make sure you have the most amazing time.

This dream fishing trip will have you targeting Blue Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, Tuna, Hogfish, and many more. If 3 days all-inclusive luxury fishing extravaganza isn’t your cuppa tea, how about a shorter half day trip? You’ll still be able to try a variety of techniques, that will have you catching Sailfish, Tilefish, Grouper, and many more. These trips are great for the whole family or you and 5 fishing friends.

You’ll spend the day aboard a 46’ Hatteras boat. This beautifully maintained boat has full navigational equipment that will have you on top of the fish before you know it. She has all the comforts of home, with a full kitchen, restroom, air-conditioning, and a multimedia system.

She also has a fighting chair, which will be a godsend when you are battling the monsters of the deep! It doesn’t take long to get on the fish, allowing you to spend maximum time fishing. This also makes these trips great for beginners who haven’t quite got their sea legs yet.

You’ll use great rods and reels, from Penn and Shimano. When deep sea fishing there are also special electric reels at your disposal. This great gear won’t let you down mid-catch.

The minimum age for children on board is 3 years old. Start them young and ignite a lifelong passion for fishing. These trips are great for those new to fishing and the more experienced anglers alike. Captain Taco and his crew are happy to show you a variety of techniques, so there is never a dull moment on board!

Captain Taco Perez has been mastering the waters of South Florida since the mid 70’s. He fished for Jacks, Tarpon, and whatever else patrolled the canals and Intracoastal waterways. Taco’s first boat was a 25’ Open Fisherman, aboard which he explored the Ft. Lauderdale coast. Taco gained as much information as possible from local anglers, perfected his cast, and tried various techniques and fishing methods. Before he knew, people began asking him about fishing! Taco’s repertoire is not limited to the waters of South Florida. He has fished all over Mexico, Venezuela, St. Thomas, and Turk, as well as the Bahamas. He has successfully taken part in various fishing competitions, including the Bahamas Blue Marlin tournament. Now, Captain Taco has his own charter business and he is loving every minute of it.
