Experience the best fishing charter off the coast of Florida with Hook’N Up Sport Fishing! Explore the Atlantic Ocean and catch exciting fish species such as Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Skipjack Tuna, Wahoo, Swordfish, and Kingfish.

Want to go further? You can choose the Bahamas as your destination! Come aboard a spacious 50’ saltwater fishing boat designed by Tom Fexas, equipped with a fighting chair, flybridge, live bait well, snorkeling equipment, AC, fishfinder, GPS, outriggers, and an icebox. The boat has a toilet, kitchen, bed, and multimedia system, ensuring a comfortable trip.

Our crew is experienced and will guide you through the different fishing techniques, including trolling, bottom fishing, spinning, jigging, and kite fishing. Depending on your experience level, you can choose between shorter trips near the shore or further out to sea for bigger fish. Don’t worry about packing, as we provide rods, reels, tackle, and lures, and live bait can be purchased at an additional cost as you exit the marina.

During your trip, drinks and snacks are served onboard, and the crew will clean and fillet your catch. The fishing permit is included in the trip rates, but bear in mind live bait is not included. If there are no available spots for your preferred trip, check out our other boat by scrolling down and clicking on our charter operator’s name.
