Background
Captain Taco Perez has been mastering the waters of South Florida since the mid 70’s. He fished for Jacks, Tarpon, and whatever else patrolled the canals and Intracoastal waterways. Taco’s first boat was a 25’ Open Fisherman, aboard which he explored the Ft. Lauderdale coast. Taco gained as much information as possible from local anglers, perfected his cast, and tried various techniques and fishing methods. Before he knew, people began asking him about fishing! Taco’s repertoire is not limited to the waters of South Florida. He has fished all over Mexico, Venezuela, St. Thomas, and Turk, as well as the Bahamas. He has successfully taken part in various fishing competitions, including the Bahamas Blue Marlin tournament. Now, Captain Taco has his own charter business and he is loving every minute of it.
Techniques
We du quite a bit of trolling and in the winter months we also like to kite fish along with some deep drops on some of the ship wrecks.

Rainy day turns out to be GREAT day Fish
Rainy day turns out to be GREAT day Fish
Nov 22, 2020 Fort Lauderdale
Today we went fishing with David and Vanessa from West Palm Beach. There down in Fort Lauderdale celebrating David’s B Day and fishing was part of their planes. Now as it turns out David is an avid fisherman and spends time in the Florida Keys fishing for tarpon with a fly rod but today he had a couple other fish he wanted off his bucket list. He was hoping to catch a black fin tuna a Mahia Mahia and if possible a sailfish. Well this was a tall order to fill I told him but we would do our best but I guaranteed a good time. But as we set off looking for a black fin ob a Mahia Mahia off shore thing started l;ooking pretty bad with the winds cranking at about 18 knots and to make matters worse the rain came and I mean it came down hard. It was looking like I was going to have a hard time just that guarantee about the good [email protected]%@%^* But we stuck it out trolling with 2 baits down deep and 3 baits skipping across the surface. Than all of a sudden bite on one of our deep lines and BAM 1 small black fin tuna in the box. A few minutes later another small tuna followed but a skip jack tuna than another. Ok the rain stopped and things were looking up when we got another bite on one of the deep lines BUT this time a Wahoo heck yea was not on the order but heck high 5s for every one. Ok now the rain was gone and we thought we would set out a couple kites with live bait suspended from them and that’s when thing really started hopping. A Mahia Mahgi and we were Hooked Up after a 5 min back and forth tug a war fish in box!!! Yep we got what they ordered but wait we were still fishing and here comes another Mahia and yep another they were biting and we were having a ball. Then out of nowhere popped up a sailfish and yep the fight was on. 20 min later David had this 6 foot sailfish to the boat. We got a few pictures with the sail still in the water then we released this beautiful fish to fight again another day. David and Vanessa thanks SOOO much had a ball fishing with you and I’m sure we will be fishing again soon. Captain Taco tacohookedup.com **hidden content**and all had a great time.

Today started out with 4 to 5 foot seas and slows fishing BUT some how by the grace of good thing took a big turn for the better. We had some of the unthought-of heroes (Truck Drivers) and when you think about it with out them we would have no food, medicine, appliances ECT so yea these guys are heroes in their on right. We had Albert who brought along his 3 sons Ripton, Omar and Owen along with close friends of the family Sean and Normun. Eating fish was the target today so we headed right off shore looking for some Mahi Mahi but only catching a couple small black fin tunas. Ok time for plane B so we headed in to fish some of our local wrecks but it just was not panning out for us so we were just going to make a move to another wreck when here came this gift from god a school of Mahi and the chaos began. Fish in the water all around the boat lines get tangled with each other BUT fish were hitting the deck and man was it a ball. Soon the school of Mahi left and we were just about to do the same when BAM here they came again only by now everyone was getting the hang of it and fish were now coming into the boat one after another. We finally did find some nice almaco jacks on the bottom and the box looked real good at this point with more than enough eating fish for everyone and some extra for the freezer. Thanks again Albert had a ball fishing with you and your family next time we will order a little calmer seas. (LOL) Captain Taco
