What We Offer

Deep Dropping & Snapper Fishing

When we decide to deep drop here off the coast of Fort Lauderdale aboard the Hooked Up 2, we like to start out with some live bait, typically small bonitos, Speedos, pinfish, tinker mackerel or blue runners.

Sail Fishing

Here of the coast of Fort Lauderdale the most practiced method for targeting sails are with kites. It’s most popular and affective way of catching these magnificent fish that swim up and down the coast of South Florida.

Shark Fishing

There are many different techniques for targeting sharks, but here aboard the Hooked Up 2 we have found a very productive way to cover the top middle and bottom of the ocean, all at the same time.


Trolling the reefs for kingfish and bonitos and trolling off shore for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tunas and some times a Blue Marlin.

Day & Night Time Sword Fishing

South Florida offers some of the best sword fishing around! One of the benefits of this type of fishing is that we can go fishing for these good eating worthy opponents during the day or at night
