Fanntastic Fishing

801 Seabreeze Boulevard
Fort Lauderdale FL, United States

Fanntastic Fishing has a fairly simple mission goal:  they want you to be happy, comfortable and mostly, to catch fish! They offer more than just fishing on their trips. The service is ou

The charter is operated by Captain Steve Souther who is the main captain at Fanntastic Fishing after taking the reigns from captain Mark Fann. (See where the site name came from)? For over 40 years he has been guiding guests to the fish off the south Florida coast.

With Fanntastic Fishing there is no reason to concern yourself with fishing licenses, tackle or anything else to do with the fishing. They provide all that is needed. You are welcome to bring anything you wish to eat or drink with you. A large cooler with ice and a small fridge will keep your things cool.

The air conditioned salon has two large sofas to help keep you cool in the warm summer months if you need a break from the heat. But being on the ocean is considerably cooler than the temperatures on land. Down two steps from the salon you’ll find a clean restroom (the head).

In the cockpit area they have 3 fighting chairs and mezzanine seating. This is where the action is! Whether we are trolling for Mahi Mahi or flying the kites for Sailfish, you’ll be taken to the most productive spots in the area. There is plenty of room for up to 6 guests.

Fanntastic Fishing will take you just 20 minutes from the shore with the rest of the time spent purely fishing! Whether you are looking for edible fish like King Mackerel, Wahoo, Amberjack or Tuna, or hoping to test your strength against something big like a Marlin or a Sailfish, their courteous and professional crew will have their best foot forward to make it happen. So sit back and relax. Fanntastic Fishing will put you to work as soon as that first bite comes.

It was a fun day on the water. I would recommend not booking online as it is more expensive then if u we’re to show up there.
