Member since February 2017 Fort Lauderdale, United States
Background
My dad has been fishing in Fort Lauderdale since the 60's. I grew up fishing in Fort Lauderdale and became a captain the day I turned 18, and I have been fishing every day since. I love fishing and love getting my customers hooked up to the fish of a lifetime. Nothing thrills me more than having people come fishing with me year after year and planning their vacation based on coming out on a big game fishing charter with me. I love to fish and love getting new people into this sport. It's a lot of fun and there isn't any excitement to match being hooked up to a world class gamefish.
Techniques
I love to fish for big game fish. We specialize in fishing for Sailfish, Sharks and Swordfish... all the biggest gamefish that Fort Lauderdale has to offer. I of course like to fish for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Wahoo and more as well, but at New Lattitude Sportfishing, we definitely specialize in big game fishing!

We don't catch these often, but when we do, I simply must write about them. On today's trip we caught one of the most elusive billfish out there, the swordfish. These are one of the strongest, most sought after,… Read Full Report →
