Just booked!

Hook’N Up Sport Fishing runs fishing trips off the coast of Florida. You will experience the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and go after the likes of Cobia, Mahi Mahi, Skipjack Tuna, Wahoo, Swordfish, and Kingfish. And, if you want to go a bit further off, you can choose the Bahamas as your destination.

You will come aboard a 50’ saltwater fishing boat of Tom Fexas make. She can provide plenty of comfort to a group of six anglers, and comes equipped with a fighting chair, flybridge, live bait well, snorkeling equipment, AC, fishfinder and GPS, outriggers, and an icebox.

The vessel also has a toilet, kitchen, bed, and multimedia system - you get the picture, it’s a big boat that can weather the depths, and give you a smooth ride.

There is a variety of techniques to try out - trolling, bottom fishing, spinning, jigging, and even kite fishing. The crew will be by your side, and their experience will direct you towards the right fishing spots.

If you’re just starting out, you may want to go on a shorter trip, staying closer to the shore and casting your lure for King Mackerel. More experienced anglers can head out further, and try to reel in bigger fish.

Before you head out on your trip, there are not many things you need to pack. Aboard Hook’N Up Sport Fishing, you will get rods, reels, and tackle, lures, and if you wish, you can purchase live bait as you exit the marina at additional costs.

Drinks and snacks are served onboard, and the crew will clean and fillet your catch. The fishing permit is included in the trip rates. If there are no available spots for your trip, check out the other boat - just scroll down, and click on the charter operator’s name.
