Deep Sea Fishing in Fort Lauderdale

Florida’s Gold Coast is an angling mecca that boasts plenty of fishing hotspots, from canals to reefs, to the Intracoastal Waterway. Top of the list, though, has to be the Gulf Stream, which holds plenty of world-famous big game fish all within 10 miles of shore. Hop aboard one of the many Fort Lauderdale deep sea fishing charters for a bucket list-worthy adventure!
 
As we mentioned, the Gulf Stream comes straight past Fort Lauderdale, and it brings some seriously impressive big game fish with it. The waters get deep so quickly that you’ll have the chance to encounter anything from Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Tuna varieties, and Sailfish a short boat ride from shore. And that’s not all – Marlin and Swordfish are in the cards here, too. 
 
Most local anglers recommend opting for a full day trip if you’re deep sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale, in order to get the most out of your day on the water. However, as the travel time to deep waters is so short, you can also target a variety of big game fish on a half or 3/4 day trip. You’ll see that Fort Lauderdale is home to some of the most accessible deep sea fishing around.
 
You’ll find charters dotted along the city’s waterfront, offering a variety of trips for anglers of all skill levels. There’s really no bad place to depart from here. You’ll generally be heading out on a large sportfishing vessel, with all the gear included and rigged up for you already. It’s just a case of choosing your perfect charter and getting ready for some deep sea action!

If you're going with kids bring drinks and snacks. Hats, sunscreen, and a positive attitude with those around you go a long way.

Speak to your guide about how the fishing is going at that particular time of the year. Some months are better than others

I booked this trip for my husband for Father's Day. Along with a friend. They had a good time. The Captain and crew were great. Unfortunately they came home with no fish. One person caught a Grouper and my husband caught a Trigger Fish. The Captain felt bad and even stayed out a little longer but nature said No.. This also was the night fishing trip. I will definitely book again.

Waters are a little more rough in May as opposed to the summer months but a little more choppy waters get the fish more active. Quality over quantity during the month of May.
