What is the difference between Sportfishing and Drift Fishing?

  • Drift fishing is done 100% on our large party boat the Lois Ann. This is a shared charter with up to 60 people that goes out daily at 8am, 1pm and 7pm. On this boat everything is provided including captain, mate and all the tackle.  The boat features full air-conditioning, bathroom and large cockpit with plenty of room for everyone. We fish inshore on the reef for smaller fish such as snapper, grouper, king mackerel and sharks. It is up to you to hook the fish. This trip is $45/person.  More info…
  • Sportfishing is a more private hands-on experience done on our bigger sport fish boats in which we target the largest big game fish of South Florida and some of the world.  Our sporfish boats generally fish up to 6 people with our larger boat fishes up to 22.  You can take it as private charter (recommended) or shared charter if there is only you or a couple of your friends. This trip you have a much better opportunity to catch large game fish such as mahimahi, sailfish, tuna, wahoo, white marlin, sharks and much more.   More Info…

Can I bring alcohol on the boat?
Of course you can bring alcohol.

How many people can I bring?
We are the only fleet in Florida that allows up to 62 people. We have sportfishing boats that accommodate up to 6, up to 22 and up to 62.   Simply pick your type of trip when booking to be sure you get on the right boat.  Click HERE for reservations.

Are there any age requirements?
There are no age requirements.  All ages and skill levels are welcome.

Do I need any fishing experience? 
No, we have all the experience that is needed. We love teaching others about our sport and coaching you through it all. We have many people who have never fished a day in their life, but leave with a new understanding and a unforgettable experience.

What is commonly caught on board?
Fishing always varies from season to season. I have a fishing report link on the homepage, that I update weekly. To see the latest news on what’s biting and what you would most likely be catching at that time, check it out.  For big game fishing, be sure to check out our shared sportfishing and private sportfishing charters.

Is the fish edible?
Some of the fish you are likely to catch is edible, and is yours to keep. Generally, if the fish is not edible, we release it, or use it for bait.

Do you accommodate persons in a wheelchair?
Absolutely. Our boats have a flat deck in the back that allows for easy wheelchair access and ability to fight fish. Our crew will help you get on and off the boat.

What if I catch a really big fish?
We have a great local taxidermist here in town, and they do fantastic work. If you catch a big one, tell your mate you want to mount it, and they will be happy to help you set everything up with the taxidermist.

Awesome Tarpon Trip!

We booked Captain David to take us fishing inshore since my wife gets really seasick. He mentioned that the tide was really good on a particular date so we took it. My son caught his first tarpon about 50lbs along with a barracuda and we released a snook. The inshore waters of Fort Lauderdale are very scenic and Captain David showed us some amazing celebrities homes including Wayne Huizenga where we caught a tarpon right behind his house.  Very cool stuff.  David took measurements of the tarpon and my son now how it hanging in his room. The silver king!
