Soak in some amazing views under the Florida sun, and reel in some prized fish with Good Hit Sportfishing! Captain Mike is a very friendly captain, who has been fishing this area since he was a boy. He has experience in both commercial and charter fishing, and is the perfect guide to put you on fish in this region.

You’ll head out on these productive fishing grounds on his newly restored 33’ Ocean Master center console boat, powered by twin 250 HP outboards. With its deep sides and twin engines, it provides a dry and fast ride to the fishing grounds. There is space to accommodate up to six anglers, so it’s a great option for a nice day of fishing with a couple of friends.

The captain will provide you with all the fishing equipment, including rods, reels, and tackle, as well as a range of artificial lures. Capt. Mike takes great care of his live bait, feeding it to make sure it is big and strong to really entice the big beasts below. If you’d like to try the fruits of your labor, he’ll be more than happy to clean and fillet your catch, so you can taste it for dinner.

The waters out of Fort Lauderdale are brimming with life, so there’s a variety of fish species you can target. You can choose from a range of trips, and you can try out the specialized Swordfish trip. Other target species include Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Shark, Tuna, Kingfish, Tarpon, and Wahoo.

There will be water and soft drinks, but make sure to bring some snacks on the longer trips to stay refreshed. Bring some sunscreen as well so you can relax under the hot Florida sun.

All that’s left to do is book Good Hit Sportfishing, and you’re all set to have a memorable Florida fishing adventure!

January 2022 - Swordfish and Sailfish
January 2022 - Swordfish and Sailfish
January 6, 2022
January 20222 In January we have been targeting Sailfish and Swordfish. We Have normally been sticking to the kite fishing methods for the Sailfish. Getting Hooked Up on Goggle Eyes, Pilchards, Threadfin Herring, and ballyhoos. Using The Kite to target fish is the most exciting tactic of all. Watching your baitfish on the surface while looking for s large Pelagic Game fish stalking its Prey. Sometimes the fish even jump1-20 ft in the water to catch its prey. The main fish that we are targeting is Sailfish, but no the only fish we can catch while fishing for these beauties. The fish that we catch while targeting sailfish can be – King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo and Sharks. There is no telling what will bite the hook while kite fishing. Perfect example a few years ago while kite fishing in Fort Lauderdale on a local Shipwreck. I hooked and landed a 50lb Swordfish, which is extremely rare and unheard of in these waters. Like I always say-“if its going to happen, Its going to happen out there. Speaking of Swordfish December and January have been the most productive month that I have been in the past decade. Friends and Other fisherman catching above average fish on the daily basis. The tactics that we normally use is Daytime Sword fishing, using electric reels to drop to the bottom in 1650ft-1900ft of water. We normally use 10-12lbs of lead to hit the bottom, using the electric reels are a must when fishing this deep with this much lead, you also can not forget the 3.5 kts of current that is in the gulf stream as well. Some people think that this fishery is doing so well because of El Ninyo, but I am just going to say that it has been great season. The second way we have been targeting the Swordfish is Nighttime Sword fishing. We tend to target these fish in about 1000Ft-1350ft of water, when the sun goes down these fish tend to gravitate towards the surface. Fishing in the **hidden content**ft range of depth to target these Swords. I also like to light up the water to target these guys. I like to use glow sticks, LP lights, Strobe lights and blinkers. Experimenting with these lights can be half the fun and they work., trust me. (no light, no bite) and old famous captain once told me while fishing for the Gladiator of the sea at night.
