Breathtaking sandy beaches? Check! Reel-screaming action to remember? Check! Passionate and experienced captain willing to do everything to put you on the fish? Check! Captain Josh of Chasin Finz Sport Fishing Charter and his crew invite you to explore the bountiful offshore waters of Hollywood, FL.

You’ll have a once in a lifetime opportunity to target some of the biggest game species just a few minutes from Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and Boca Raton. The superstars of your trip will be Swordfish, Blue and White Marlin, Sailfish, Tuna, Wahoo, and many other offshore VIPs.

The boat of the day is 53’ offshore sportfishing Hatteras, spacious, comfortable and reliable, able to take up to 6 passengers fishing at the same time without tangling lines. It comes powered by twin Detroit Diesel motors, 800 HP each so it can develop a top cruising speed of 28 knots, impressive for a vessel of that size.

This beauty offers you so much more than your average fishing boat - it has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, AC, huge cockpit, salon equipped with two couches, and a full kitchen with a freezer, refrigerator, grill, and stove.

It can offer even more when it comes to fishing - on board you’ll find a Bluewater fighting chair, 150-gallon livewell, fish and drink boxes, and even a Tuna tower.

Chasin Finz Sport Fishing Charter will provide you with state-of-the-art Shimano gear, from 15 lb spinning to 80 lb conventional tackle. You’ll also be supplied with all the lures, fishing licenses, and soft drinks and water. The crew will even clean and fillet your fish free of charge. The only thing you have to do is show up and reel in the catch of your dreams!
