Description:

My name is Taco and I run the best Fort Lauderdale fishing charter in South Florida! Heck, you won't have a better time on any fishing boat from West Palm to Miami. Why, because you get a sport fishing captain who has fished the waters of Fort Lauderdale for over 20 years. I know where to fish and how to fish for sailfish, marlin, tuna, dolphin, barracuda and just about anything that has gills.

You also get a great time fishing with Hooked Up. We're not one of those stuffy South Florida fishing charters where the mate and captain are stuck on themselves and barely talk to you. We want you to party, relax, or whatever you like to do. Our job is to make your time on Hooked Up the most enjoyable you can have in Ft Lauderdale fishing.

You don't have to be a seasoned angler either. We will show you and your guests/family how to work the sport fishing equipment. So there is no intimidation factor. We love helping people get into the sport of fishing! Let me also tell you I will assist you with locating hotels, restaurants, bars or whatever you're interested in. I know the South Florida area, since I've lived here all my life. I can make sure you don't go to the overpriced tourist traps. I will be your Fort Lauderdale connection!

Located at the Bahia Mar Resort and Marina in Fort Lauderdale Florida, we are minutes away from all the major hotels. Boca Raton is only a 30 minute drive and so is Miami. Our Florida fishing charter is accessible and definitely worth the drive to Ft Lauderdale.

Amenities:
Bait & Tackle, Coolers and ice, Fish Filleting, Fishing License, Instruction, Rods, Safety Gear, Soft Drinks, Water
Experience:

Well first of all, we love to fish and enjoy getting others into the sport of sportfishing. I still have to make a living at it so here’s my philosophy: If I show you a great time you will tell others about fishing on the Hooked up and that’s why I am one of the busiest boats in town.

Also the ocean off of the South Florida coast is my backyard and it has been since 1969 so over the years I’ve become very good at catching fish, not just fishing these waters, so whether you are into catching that trophy fish of a life time or your looking to have that big fish fry, come get Hooked up.
