Drift Fishing in Fort Lauderdale

 

Thanks to its proximity to the Gulf Stream and numerous reefs and wrecks not far from the coast, Fort Lauderdale is especially popular among anglers. Just about anything you can think of, you can target! One of the best ways to do that is to head out with one of the many Fort Lauderdale drift fishing charters.

Drift fishing in these prolific waters gives you easy access to a variety of species. Around the reefs and wrecks, you could hook into Snapper (Yellowtail, Red, Mutton, Vermilion) and Grouper. You could also easily find Cobia, Amberjack, King Mackerel, Porgy, and Triggerfish at the end of your line.

Venture further out, and you’ll be in the realm of trophy pelagics. We’re talking Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, even Sailfish. Some charters offer Swordfishing as a special treat if you’re up for some unforgettable angling battles.

One of the main reasons drift fishing is so popular in the “Venice of America” is that it’s as affordable as it’s productive. There are big party boats that will take you out to the reefs for a reasonable price and put you on a solid bite. The private drift fishing charters Fort Lauderdale has to offer are better suited for longer runs that could result in record Billfish catches.

There are dozens of marinas in Fort Lauderdale, and most of them are the home of charter guides. Remember to book your trip well in advance and enjoy yourself!

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.
