Fort Lauderdale Fishing Charters

Ft. Lauderdale fishing has some of the best game fishing in the world. Fishing Headquarters is a sportfishing and drift fishing company that operates out of Ft. Lauderdale. Fishing Headquarters runs daily private and shared charters, as well as open boat drift fishing every day. Our drift fishing boat, the Catch My Drift is the largest and fastest boat of her class in our area. The Catch My Drift is an 85? Gulf stream party fishing boat. We run 3 trips daily for 4 hours each, departing at 8:30AM, 1:30Pm and 7:30PM. On our 2 daytime trips, we go offshore about 2 mile and fish on the 3rd reef off Fort Lauderdale. We drift with ballyhoo, squids and sardines . Depending on the time of year we catch kingfish, bonito, mahi mahi, grouper, snapper, wahoo, tuna and the occasional sailfish. It?s a great way to get outside and have some fun with family or friends while on vacation in Ft. Lauderdale. The best thing is about this trip is that it only costs $30 per person.

Our night fishing trip is a totally different style of fishing. On our night trip, we anchor the boat and chum the water. The chum attracts all the different types of fish that live on the reef and brings them up close to the boat. We fish for yellowtail snapper mostly but we catch a lot of other species while fishing this style. Mangrove, mutton and lane snappers, red and black groupers, cobia, sharks, and some other crazy reef fish like eels, lobster, and sting rays are just a few of the critters you?ll catch on this trip. Our nig ht time anchor fishing trip is our best trip for catching action.

Another type of night fishing trip we offer is our Friday Night Open Boat Swordfishing trip. We are the only boat I?ve ever heard of that offers a trip like this. Every Friday night we head offshore to swordfish grounds, about 15 miles offshore. For this trip, we go out for 8 hours, from 6PM-2AM. We use dead squids rigged with glow sticks and strobe lights and fish position the baits at different depths, spaced apart with balloons. If you?ve never done it before, this is a really interesting style of fishing. And when that s wordfish bites the line, your in for a great fight. Swordfish are one of the strongest fish that we catch and they can range anywhere from 50-300 pounds. We?ve been running this trip for over a year now and it has become one of our most popular fishing trips we offer. Swordfish are great fighting fish, excellent eating and they can make awesome trophies for your wall. If your into catching something really big, this is the trip for you.

Or if your looking for big game fishing during the day, try a charter on one of our sport fishing boat. We can put together a small group shared charter for you, or you can charter the whole boat to yourself and bring up to 6 people. Sportfishing is a bit more specialized style of fishing. On our sport fishing trips, we use techniques like artificial lure trolling, shipwreck bottom fishing, slow trolling of live baits, dead bait shark fishing and even kite fishing where we fly kites and suspend live baits from the kite. We t ake out customers from all different experience levels, from beginners to avid and professional fishermen. No experience is necessary and we show you how to work all the equipment. On our sporfishing trips, we typically catch sailfish, sharks, barracuda, wahoo, tuna, marlin, mahi mahi dolphin, amberjack and dozens of other species throughout the year. Sport fishing is a bit more expensive but I highly recommend it, especially if you?ve never fished before.

Whatever your group consists of, whether it be family or friends, business associates, or even if your by yourself, your going to love Fort Lauderdale fishing with us. Most of our customers come back to fish us with us year after year, and many say that we were the highlight of their vacation. Try a trip or 2 with us and we?ll show you a great time.
