Lou’s Hooked Up 2 Sportfishing is here to take you on one of the best Fort Lauderdale fishing charters imaginable! There is never a dull moment on our fishing trips with all the fishing opportunities Fort Lauderdale presents. Our crew will go above and beyond to ensure you are right where the action is. We welcome anglers of all experience levels to come join us for an amazing day of Fort Lauderdale deep sea fishing!

 

Captain Luis Perez will be piloting the boat as you cruise the deep waters in search of your trophy catch while soaking up the beautiful Florida sunshine. Capt. Luis was practically born with a pole in his hand. He developed his love for fishing at a very early age while learning everything from his father, who is an avid fisherman. He has vast experience fishing in Florida and running Fort Lauderdale fishing charters. Capt. Luis cares deeply about the success of your trip. His top priority is ensuring you have the Florida fishing trip of a lifetime. He and his crew are always happy to pass on their knowledge and answer any questions you may have on fishing trips with them. 

 

Our fishing charters will begin in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Depending on where all the action is, Capt. Luis may lead you to the nearby fishing grounds of Hollywood, Pompano Beach, Aventura, North Miami, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, and many other popular fishing locations along the Southeast shores of Florida. 

 

All of the excitement and elation begin the moment you hop aboard our stunning 45ft Hatteras sport fisherman. Few other boats can do Fort Lauderdale fishing charters like this one! Her set of 480hp Cummins engines will get us to where the fish are biting in a very timely manner. This vessel is rigged with features such as GPS, VHF radio, air-conditioning, refrigerator, and all of the latest fish finding technologies. You and 5 of your friends will have more than enough room to enjoy Fort Lauderdale deep sea fishing! 

 

We offer full and half day trips covering the shores of Fort Lauderdale. We also offer special Swordfish trips where we specifically target these giant gamefish that Southeast Florida is full of. Everything you will possibly need for a productive day of fishing is included in the trip price. A first mate will be on deck to help you out with anything you may need. After the trip, any catch you are able to keep will be cleaned for dinner options. 

 

There is no shortage of sportfishing opportunities in Southeast Florida and Captain Luis will make sure you do not miss any of these opportunities! We will target all of the exciting local species on our Fort Lauderdale fishing charters. Some of our favorite species to chase after include Swordfish, Mahi Mahi, Sharks, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Tuna.

SWORDFISH TRIP – DAY

Includes 6 guests

Trip time: 8:00am to 4:00pm (8 hours)

3 Day Cancellation Policy

Daytime sword fishing is amazing because we troll our way out and back for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna and maybe even a Blue Marlin.

 

Once we get out to the sword fishing grounds (15 to 20 miles offshore) we rig a squid or a bonito to a long leader about 120 to 150 feet long. We also clip on a blinking light about 10 to 15 feet away from the bait.

 

Than we connect a 15-pound lead to the line and start our long drop to the bottom (1200 to 1700 feet down). Once we hit bottom, we will reel the bait up 75 to 100 Ft.

 

Now here’s the funny part, when we get the bite, 9 out of 10 times you’ll just see the rod twitch just a little or the line will go slack. What’s happening is the fish is swimming up because of the 15-pound lead pulling down. So, at this point it’s a race with the electric reel to gain all the line as quick as you can before the fish starts pulling line out. Once the lead gets to the boat, we un-clip it, and this is the true beginning of the tug-a-war game.

 

 Now we’ve got to somehow get this sea monster close enough to throw a harpoon into him. But the fight is still not over. Once we have connected the fish to the harpoon, we have a polleyball connected to the dart, so if the fish does decide to take off again the polleyball causes such drag that it tires the fish out quickly.

 

This kind of fishing is one hell of an adrenaline rush when it all comes together.

SWORDFISH TRIP – NIGHT

Includes 6 guests

Trip time: 5:00pm to 1:00am (8 hours)

3 Day Cancellation Policy

 

Aboard the Hooked Up 2 for nighttime Swordfish trip, we like to leave the dock 2 to 3 hours before sunset so we can high speed troll our way out for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tunas and maybe a Blue Marlin.

 

Once we are at the sword fish grounds (20 to 30 min before sun set), we set out 4 to 5 baits ranging from 75 feet down to all the way to 350 feet down, all with blinking lights 5 to 10 feet away from the bait.

 

Another thing we like is a real bright light hanging off the boat and just about 7 or 8 feet under the water it is amazing all the little fish, turtles, squids and even BIG sword fish that will swim right up to the light.

 

When it all comes together, there is nothing like coming back to the dock with a BIG SWORD that took some real team work by everyone aboard just to catch!!

  • Amazing Time!

    Created Kenny Bilwin

    Cannot say enough about how comfortable and easy Captain Taco made the booking process. I had multiple boats chartered on different days, and my family and friends could not have been happier. I had the pleasure of fishing with Captain Lou and Brian on both days I went out. They immediately made us feel like family and we had a great and successful fishing trip. We caught a big Amberjack, a bunch of Blackfin Tuna, a few Snapper, multiple sharks over 5', and a bunch of Kings and Bonita..... Amazing time, we will certainly book next year!

  • Amazing Experience

    Created Brandon Morton

    This is the charter to go with! Such an amazing experience! Louis and Brian were entertaining very knowledgeable. The prices are fantastic for the amount of enjoyment thos fishing trip peovides. We will be coming back every year for the rest of our lives. Thanks again, guys!

  • Great Day!

    Created Barbara Duncan

    We chartered Hooked Up II for a full day, just my husband and myself. Our crew was Captain Lou and mates Brian and Steve. It was something we had been looking forward to, this is our second annual quick right after Christmas trip to Fort Lauderdale. Our hotel room overlooks the marina, last year we were boat shopping for ourselves (we’re from NJ) so we didn’t get to go fishing but knew we’d be back and planned to go with those great guys from Hooked Up! We did exactly that this year. Yes it’s a bit off season, last day of grouper season (12/31) and prior weather hadn’t been great, but we got lucky today!!! The weather was fantastic, we started off bait fishing, nothing like fresh live bait! We hooked up a 7’ nurse shark, a 6’+ sail fish, and a behemoth mutton snapper and of course that infamous ______ that got away!!! Lol Our first time ever catching a sail fish and a mutton!!! The guys from Hooked Up II really know what they’re doing and super nice. Being a mom mom I was very comfortable with this crew. My husband picked their brains about a lot things that were gonna try in South Jersey!! There was 1 downside, no hoodies available to buy!!! I need a hoodie Lou! I collect them plus it’s great to wear to show off my southern fishing excursions back up north! It’s cold up there! If you’re looking to fish with professionals who really know what their doing, Lou and his crew from Hooked Up are the ones you want to go with. My husband and I have fished for a long time, we know these guys know what their doing! It was a great day!!!

  • Totally Recommend these guys!

    Created Wendal Lowrey

    My party had a fabulous time aboard Lou's Hooked Up 2! Father's Day proved to be great for weather and fishing. Noodles was very knowledgeable and taught fishing tips as the trip progressed. I absolutely suggest these guys for your next sport fishing excursion. Looking forward to going back out with them!

  • Super Fun Trip!

  • Great Fishing

    Created James Westbrook

    Lou and Brian are true professionals and excellent fishermen! Went out for an all day trip hooked up five sailfish and had an absolutely wonderful time. Highly recommend this service.

  • Fish on

    Created Andrea F

    Been out with Lou over 7 times. Every time we filled the cooler. By far best captain on east coast. From Mahi to tuna wahoo. Hammer heads sails this weekend a sword fish over 400lbs. He’s the best

  • Half day fishing trip

    Created Lena B

    What a trip we had today! We went out with Lou and Brian for a morning half day trip. At first it was slow, then we were able to find some snapper.. we thought "ok, we are still on the boat, the weather is great, the sea is beautiful, we're ok with our catch," and then, we catch the mother of them all, a giant grouper about 70 lbs! Thanks to Lou who did not give up, and kept trying and trying and the sea delivered. While fishing is never a sure thing, this trip turned out to be the best present for my husband!

  • Quick 4 hour trip

    Created John K

    Great captain and mate. These guys were extremely knowledgeable, very friendly, down to earth. We were the only boat to catch fish on a cold and windy 4 hour trip. Will be calling them again.

  • Looking for a FUN and EXCITING time deep sea fishing??? THIS IS THE CREW FOR YOU!

    Created Mandy C

    Having NEVER been deep sea fishing, I was totally unprepared for the experience. Lou and his 1st Mate, Noodles brought it to us! WE HAD THE TIME OF OUR LIFE!!! Lou found the fish for us, and Noodles was the BEST ever with helping us!! I HIGHLY recommend this crew for deep sea fishing, and WE WILL BE back!! These two folks from Atlanta can't wait for next summer to go fishing with this crew again!!
