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!
