  • Awesome Experience!

    Created Kevin Hurt

    Super awesome experience! As a world traveler I was deeply satisfied with the knowledge and experience that Taco and Rusty brought to the table. The boat was super clean and the fishing was great. To top it all off we caught a shark!

  • "Seas the day"

    Created Justin Kramm

    We had a "reel" great adventure with Captain Taco and Mark. They helped us "seas the day" by showing us all the best fishing spots. We're hooked and we'll definitely try to charter with them again.

  • 10/10

    Created Gabrielle Johnson

    My experience with Hooked Up Fishing was the highlight of my vacation! It was such a fun time and had a super welcoming crew. We began catching fish within just 30 minutes, and went on to catch a huge shark, which we released. I would fully recommend this trip to anyone looking to have a fun time and a good fishing experience. 10/10, such a great time! :)

  • Loved this trip

    Created Aaron Lindle

    Couldn’t be happier with my experience with Taco and first mate Rusty. Taco was extremely friendly and accommodating from the beginning. As an Iowa native I have little experience with deep sea fishing and this charter made it easy! We were on fish within 10 minutes of putting lines in the water and the day ended with a 9 foot trophy Atlantic shark. What an adrenaline rush! I’m still smiling from ear to ear about my experience days later and will most definitely be coming back to fish with Taco and his crew at Hooked Up next time I’m in South Florida! Worth every penny!

  • Great Time!

    Created Angle Cristina

    Hooked Up Sportfishing Charters for a work event and had a great time. The crew struck a good balance by involving us a little bit in the sailing, but not too much. They also plied us with little snacks throughout the trip in addition to the sandwiches and drinks I was expecting, which was nice.

  • Plenty of fun!

    Created Broderick Johnson

    Had a great day at sea with Hooked Up Sportfishing. Clean spacious vessel with a welcoming, friendly and highly experienced crew. Plenty of fun and excitement from start to finish. Ft Lauderdale's best!

  • Great Guides!

    Created Joe Ackerman

    We had a great fishing trip with Captain Taco and 1st mate Mark. They are super friendly, very accommodating, and are very very experienced. Definitely world-class fisherman. It really didn’t feel like a chartered fishing trip it was rather going out with friends. We were engaged in conversation and they were happy to explain and answer any questions that we had. I Will be returning and recommend Hooked Up Fishing.

  • Cant wait to return!

    Created Dustin Knight

    We had such a great time with Captain Taco and Mark... I can't say enough about those two... We took 3 kids with us and they took up so much time with each one....We caught alot of red snapper, a huge golden tilefish and a 6ft shark.. We had so much fun the first day we even went back out with these guys for a second day!! And can't wait to go back again!! Will never ever use anyone else!!

  • Great Charter!

    Created Michael Reynolds

    What a great outfit. Professional courteous staff. Captain Gary and Alex the mate were fantastic. See y'all in 3 months with my trophy sailfish mount.

  • Fish on!

    Created John Zarate

    Had a great day and caught a bunch of fish. No big Sailfish or Grouper but its fishing you don't catch those every day in Florida. JB and Nathan we very helpful and answered any questions I had. They cleaned some of the fish and recommended a local restaurant that cooked them for my lunch. I would definitely recommend this charter and hope to do it again next time I'm in town.
