Whether it's the peaceful and serene beauty of being on the ocean, the excitement of a Sailfish or Dolphin erupting from the water, the brute strength of a Tuna or the drag-searing run of a Wahoo or Kingfish, the local waters off of Fort Lauderdale are the best place to go. During an offshore sportfishing excursion you can encounter any of the species listed above.
Sailfish are the most acrobatic and energetic game fish that inhabit the offshore waters of South Florida. A local Fort Lauderdale Sport fishing Captain will use many different tactics to catch Sailfish, the most exciting tactic we use is Live Bait Kite fishing. When we kite fish we suspend live baits from a fishing kite, the live baits sit just inches under the surface of the water so they splash and create sound waves which penetrate into the depths and ripples which magnify across the surface. These sound waves and ripples get the Sailfish and other offshore pelagic species attention. With the baits only inches under the surface of the water we can watch the Sailfish, Dolphin, Kingfish, Wahoo, or Tuna attack the bait, you witness some very impressive hits.
A local Fort Lauderdale fishing guide will use light 15lbs to 20lbs stand up tackle to fight these offshore sport fish. They will have all the necessary gear and experience to keep you fighting fish all day. A Fort Lauderdale fishing excursion is the perfect gift for someone who is an outdoors enthusiast and the perfect way to get the family together.

Swordfishing & OffShore Charter Boat Captain
Vinnie's love for the sport of fishing began at an early age. He was raised with a fishing pole in his hand in the old harbor town of Annapolis, Maryland. Growing up Vinnie spent his summer's Big Game fishing with his father and brothers out of Montauk Point, Long Island and in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. He spent the winters fishing for Blues and Stripers in the Chesapeake Bay. Vinnie took his knowledge of fishing to the next level at the age of 17, when he was a mate on numerous charter and private fishing boats and worked at local tackle shops while attending college in South Florida. His love for fishing has taken him all over South Florida including the Everglades and the Florida Keys, the Bahamas and the majority of the Caribbean Islands. Vinnie's knowledge of boats, water, and fishing far exceed his tender age of 22 and his fishing performances have earned him a reputation.
