Daytime Sword Fishing is the newest thing in deepsea sportfishing! These trips can produce some really big Swordfish so get make sure your arms are rested and get ready for a big battle! Trips are 8 hours or longer and sea conditions must be calm as all get out, so definitely make sure you are in contact with us in the days leading up to your trip. If conditions end up being less than ideal for swords Taco will be more than happy to accommodate another type of trip for your scheduled time slot or we can work to reschedule you for a different day....Read More
For his nighttime Swordfish trips, Taco likes to depart 2 to 4 hours before sunset. This way you can fish on the way out, catch a few Dolphin or maybe a Marlin! These trips are also 8 hours or longer, generally 9-11 hours in length.
Both are great options so no matter which you choose you'll get a great time fishing in Ft. Lauderdale with Captain Taco. His charter is not one of those stuffy Ft. Lauderdale fishing charters where the mate and captain are stuck on themselves and barely talk to you. They want you to party, relax, or do whatever you like to do. In his mind, his job is to make your time aboard the "Hooked Up" the most enjoyable time a person can have in Ft Lauderdale fishing.
All Taco's trip come with his Full Service Package which includes an experienced captain & mate, all nesesary fishing licenses, top of the line rods, reels & tackle, a cooler loaded with ice for your beers & sodas, and a lot of laughs & a great time!
All he recommends you bring along with you is some food and drink for your voyage, sunscreen & sunglasses (Unless you choose nighttime Swords), and a little luck!
Captain Taco caters his trips to anglers of all experience levels. So if you're an experienced angler, Captain Taco is more than happy to let you do your thing! and if you're new to the sport, Captain Taco loves to show his guests how to work the sport fishing equipment, so there is no intimidation factor. He just loves helping people get into the sport of fishing!...Read More
Captain Taco has lived in South Florida his whole life and is more than happy to assist you with locating restaurants, bars, or whatever you’re interested in. He can make sure you don’t go to the overpriced tourist traps, he will be your Fort Lauderdale connection!
When we arrived we had a brief meeting with captain taco and Mike to see what the plan for the day would be. Several in the group thought mahi mahi would be a lot of fun. Otherws snappers if we had time and others. Their slip is super convenient and ...Read More within minutes we were out on the Atlantic. It turned into one of the best fishing days in my 54 years lol. The two of them knew how to find and species and stay on them and were the best guys. Just like fishing with friends. The boat was super comfortable and very clean. We ended up with over a dozen mahi mahi and done mitten snapper and great fun memories. I highly recommend these two for a memorable experience.
Captain Greg was knowledgable and helpful. He took us out, and he and his first mate set the poles up seamlessly while we enjoyed the ride. After a slowish start - 3 Mackerels - we hooked into a 50+ pound Amber Jack. That fight lasted about 20 minutes ...Read More and ended in a great pic of myself and my 2 sons holding an enormous Amberjack. And if that weren’t enough, we hooked and landed a 200+ pound Hammerhead shark 20 minutes later! The captain and his mate were helpful throughout. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Highly recommend them if you’re looking for a deep sea fishing experience.
Can’t go wrong with this charter. Excellent boat, equipment and crew. Fishing was a little slow to start and Dan changed up the baits and boom. We had a great steady catch of black fin tuna, bonita and a bonus wahoo! This is the perfect charter to take if you ...Read More have kids really big cabin with cold AC when you want to get out of the sun. Look them up in Ft Lauderdale and you will be happy
My brother and I booked this trip with the intention of landing a trophy. Captain Taco, and his crew delivered and did so quickly…we were able to land a 9 foot hammerhead within 2 1/2 hours on the boat…off of a kite no less!. WHAT A FIGHT!!! We also put ...Read More a half dozen blackfin Tuna and a King Mackerel on ice to bring home…this was an experience that I fully intend to do again
Trip of a lifetime. 6 hour trip. Seas were rougher but perfect day for kite fishing. Crew handled gear and conditions like professionals. We started off trolling, hooked some tuna and Bonita. We switched over to live bait. Highly recommend. Extra but worth it. We started kite fishing. Within 15 ...Read More minutes we had 2 sailfish hooked. One got away. After that we hooked a king and the action died after that. The technique and finesse that the crew has was impressive. Top game trip I’ve been on. Definitely a repeater!
