Fishin’Pole Sportfishing

Get ready for some premium fishing on a top-of-the-line boat and with a tournament-winning crew in South Florida, the Bahamas, and the Gulf of Mexico. Take on huge pelagics like Wahoo, Sailfish, Marlin and Mahi Mahi, or deep drop for Grouper, Snapper, and even monster Swordfish.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 33’ Albamarle sport fishing boat – a hardy vessel purpose-built for taking on the biggest and best the Gulf has to offer. Fully-restored in 2016 and powered by twin 350 HP Caterpillar engines, she comes armed to the gills for some awesome fishing.  With GPS, a fishfinder, outriggers, a choice of tournament-grade lures or live bait fresh from the tank, you’re in for a productive day wherever you decide to fish.

In the winter, you’ll specialize in kite fishing, while in the summer you’ll go trolling. Do whatever you can to catch delicious Mahi Mahi and majestic Marlin, as well as others. Try an impressive array of different fishing techniques depending on the species you want. From deep dropping way down to the murky depths where Swordfish rule, to jigging for Grouper and Snapper, with the obligatory choice of light and heavy tackle. Whatever your style, these guys pack nothing but the best.

All trips come with licenses, live bait, and a complimentary cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take home at the end of the day. The whole of the Florida Keys is your oyster with Fishin’Pole Sportfishing.

Just set aside a date, grab your sunglasses and sunscreen and join captain Arek on the water!
