Fish off Florida’s Atlantic coast like never before with Hook’N UP Luxury Sportfishing. With an experienced crew at the helm and a top level sportfishing vessel, this is an unmissable opportunity to fish some of the world’s most productive waters.

The Hook’N Up is a 50 ft long vessel that was purpose-built for sportfishing and comfort by Tom Fexas, a renowned icon of the yacht building world. Step aboard and discover why his legendary craftsmanship has inspired countless boat builders to try and imitate his crafts’ seaworthiness and design. The huge deck will give you ample space for big game fishing; the covered flybridge will give you incredible views of the surrounding ocean; and the air-conditioned interior needs to be seen to be believed. Take all this and add the tournament-grade tackle that is supplied on all charter trips, and you will be in for an unforgettable day on the water.

Hook’N Up Sportfishing runs a wide range of sport fishing trips that are designed to cater to all types of angler. Beginners can get their sea legs on a half day trip, fishing nearshore for species such as delicious Kingfish, while fanatic fishermen are sure to enjoy taking a full day to target pelagics such as Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Wahoo. The company also offers specialized overnight Swordfishing adventures, as well as full day trips to the Bahamas and back.

Both light and heavy tackle is brought on board so you can get the most out of your adventure whatever the seas throw at you, and the boat is also fully equipped for techniques such as live bait kite fishing, jigging, and trolling.
