Background
My crewman and I have extensive experience in fishing the Fort Lauderdale/Miami areas: two Bahamas Billfish Championships and numerous tournament wins in addition to our many years of local chartering. None of us enter into tournament fishing anymore and instead choose to spend our days furthering experienced and novice anglers experiences at deep sea fishing and smoothly introducing new anglers to deep sea fishing. Between us, we have a combined total of over 90 years guiding anglers in their pursuit of big game fish and also "action" charters tailored to meet each charters specific wishes. We love what we do, it is all we do, and our love for our job is easily seen with Trip Advisor and Google reviews as well as here at Fishing Booker, as all carry us with a 5-star rating.
Techniques
We offer all types of fishing approaches ranging from big bucket list fish to smaller ones for young children. Live baiting along the reef edges for Sailfish with kites as specialty. Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, Tunas and Kings are primary trolling and live bait targets as well as bottom fishing for various species including grouper, snapper, Golden and Gray Tilefish and also assorted Jack species.

Ft. Lauderdale fishing report
Jun 2, 2021 Fort Lauderdale
Summer is upon us, no longer just around the corner. Time flies when you're having fun, and a perfect summer would include no hurricanes to interrupt the fun. Time will tell on that one. We here have been lucky as the Gulf coast has been more in the bullseye most recently. So here we go into June. Fishing has been pretty good up until two days back, got tough there, but this morning both the 46 and the 53 Marlin My Darlin are presently enjoying a better catch. Summer is here, sunscreen and a hat, we supply unlimited individual sized bottled waters with your charter ( and also A/C). Enjoy the photos of recent anglers who have joined us here. June 's typical summertime catches often include Kingfish, Tuna and Bonito. Amberjack and various other Jacks on wrecks and some snappers too current permitting. Sailfish and Wahoo always a possibility but not high season for them. Light tackle Barracudas run large and are fun on light tackle. Sharks are inshore and offshore as well. Swordfish a good target but as always a roll of the dice. Hero or zero. Mahi become a full day charter target species as they move for the most part further offshore. We'll see some inside the shelf but they will many days prefer the deeper water off the edge. Summer is high season for them, but we see them all year. Always reach me direct on my cell @ **hidden content** for accurate availability and also all reservations. Tight lines, it's already a nice summer and as we all know time flies. So get those kids out on the water, your boat or ours. Rick

Happy to report here that the deep sea fishing in Fort Lauderdale has been productive for many species. Always nice to have a positive and strong Fort Lauderdale fishing report. Many good days now far out number the difficult ones on the water and the oh so erratic fishing we dealt with in the beginning of the year is at least for now far behind us. Weather is stellar, sunny and 3 to 4 degrees below typical temperatures for this time of year for several days now. Pretty wicked wind several days back has ended and the good fishing that often accompanies those winds has continued, and here's what we have been catching. A nice steady pick at the Sails all week, good Jacks on the wrecks, and those Jacks holding on wrecks near the inlet so travel time has been typically been short from spot to spot. Some welcomed school sized Mahi-Mahi action with an occasional larger fish. All sizes of Blackfin Tunas during this past week and some good Kingfish action along the reefs. Good sized Barracudas and sharks continue their rebound likely directly attributed to effective government management anywhere from the reefs on out to 400 feet of water, which is less than two miles off the beach and where most of all species catches are presently taking place. There are Mahi much deeper but we have found the schools of them in 600 feet and less of water depth which is still quite close to shore. No Wahoo for us despite a couple of good cracks at them, and no Groupers either for us with the Jacks eating the live baits and also the dead baits we fish on wrecks where they both frequent. June and July have been traditionally when we see the big Warsaw Groupers on the deeper wrecks and we always look forward to those months offering up some of those big boys. Enjoy the pictures as always included in our reports of recent anglers. Boats are running well, everyone is healthy and the fishing is good. Rick direct @ **hidden content** for accurate availability and all reservations. See you on the rip.

And here we are barreling into the back half of May already and this will be our latest deep sea fishing report for Fort Lauderdale. Trying to post one fishing report each week to keep everybody up to date and also to get the photos of recent anglers up within the report. So enjoy the many photos and here we go with the fishing update. As you see by the first photo with this report a very, very nice Bull Mahi-Mahi joined us here aboard Marlin My Darlin during a two boat charter for Garth and his clients. Just an awesome fish and catch. Likely will be the largest Mahi- Mahi here with us and actually for the entire fleet this season. By that I mean don't expect one as exceptional as that one when you join us here but we'll catch em, and good ones too. Larger tunas now along the outside edges of the reefs, typical for this time of year. That 32# Blackfin Tuna pictured is another super sized fish. Often good numbers of Tunas around but again not as large as that one, but they all add up. Bonito (New England “Albies”) in the mix. Kings around and they will continue to be here most days some Sails but not like the Winter months. Jacks on the wrecks as pictured and some Groupers (good ones too), but this is not really a premier Grouper area. Good sized Sharks frequenting the wrecks as well and tearing up our tackle. You want to have one of them on the end of your line we're ready to tackle up. Tight lines and good fishing. Always reach me direct @ **hidden content** for all reservations and up to the minute accurate availability. See you on the rip, Rick
Fort Lauderdale fishing update
Fort Lauderdale fishing update
Abr 14, 2021 Fort Lauderdale
We continue to have a good number of anglers for our fishing charters in Fort Lauderdale. Weather has been very nice with the exception of a small front which passed thru quickly mid afternoon yesterday. Nothing but blue sky today despite the weather whizzes calling for “possible” 50 % showers coming in. A couple of Sailfish out of three chances this morning but overall the fishing was off today, a continuation of yesterday. Despite crystal clear clean blue water pushing well inside the reefs the what has been a good bite along and just beyond the reefs slowed yesterday. Current is very strong to the north with the moon and would seem to be a contributing factor. We often fish much closer in when that current is cooking along as it is (within a mile of shore today), but the fish can be anywhere as most of us understand. April and May are traditionally good months for fishing here. Some Sails, Mahi, Kings and Wahoo always a possibility. Jacks and some Groupers on the wrecks. Swordfish around but always keep in mind they certainly aren't a sure thing. We are ready if you are ready. If some Mahi -Mahi aren't encountered out there traveling to or from those Swordfish areas swinging for the fences so to speak can be a long day. Looking to bend the rods with various species a charter along the reef lines and inside the continental shelf offers chances for more happy endings, especially with kids. Enjoy the photos of recent anglers who have joined us here on a fishing charter in Ft. Lauderdale.
