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!

What anglers said about Drift Fishing in Fort Lauderdale

Wear sunscreen and bring lots of water with you. If you get seasick, take Dramamine and don’t eat much prior to leaving the dock.

It was very hot so dress appropriately. There is air conditioning in the cabin to cool off. Sunglasses, water, snacks, a hat that doesn’t fall off when the wind blows, and lots of sunscreen are necessary. We all wore long sleeve sun shirts.

I booked the charter for my 18 yo son and his 5 friends who were in Fort Lauderdale for their senior spring break. They had a blast on the boat. They were so thrilled with how they were treated. Everyone was so nice. They caught their limit of blackfin tuna and had a great dinner that night. Thank you!

Many of the target species are highly migratory depending on the time of the year. Catches can vary wildly day to day or even between morning and afternoon trips.
