Ft. Lauderdale Charter Fishing Tips


We want your Ft. Lauderdale Fishing Charter experience to be a good one, whether it’s with Captain Taco on the Hooked Up or with another good captain.  When you’re searching for the right Charter be sure to consider the following:

  • Is the person you are talking to or exchanging email with the person you will be spending your day on the ocean with or is it just someone trying to talk you into going fishing? You should make sure the person you are talking to and developed a relationship with is the same person you will be fishing with. Unfortunately, there are some in this industry who talk to you on the phone or through email who will put you with someone else when the time to fish comes. This may not be the best for you, your friends and family. It is best when you get to fish with the person you have established the relationship with.
  • Is the Ft. Lauderdale charter boat you will be fishing on fully air-conditioned? Here in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, it is nice to be able to escape the heat and relax in the cool air conditioning when the afternoon is hot.
  • Will the crew be happy to clean and package the fish you caught for you?
  • If you reserve a fishing charter boat and the weather turns bad, what is the boats policy for refunding your deposit?
  • There are very reputable fishing charters in South Florida, come on down and talk to a couple of us, give us a call or send us an email. When you find the right one for you, give them a try. If the Captain you like is booked ask them for a recommendation for another boat, they will be more than happy to hook you up with another good captain.

If you feel uneasy about the fishing boat you are about to charter, call the better business bureau at 561-842-1918.
