About Your Trip

Off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, there are a couple different techniques for trolling: trolling the reefs for Kingfish and Bonitos and trolling offshore for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tunas, and sometimes even a Blue Marlin!

**Trolling the Reef**
90% of your bites will be on the deep lines, so Captain Taco will troll with 2 planner boards that take the bait about 45 feet down along with 3 baits skipping across the surface at about
5 to 6 knots.

If you get a Kingfish bite 9 out of 10 times both deep rods will get hit at the same time. These fish like to travel in schools so Captain Taco will steer the boat in big circles dragging the baits around where you got the first bit and BAM every time you circle you should get another bite. (Well that’s how it ideally would work of course)

**Trolling Offshore**
When trolling offshore Captain Taco will pump the gas a little to cover more ground. You'll usually troll 5 to 6 baits on the surface at 6 to 8 knots. He doesn't like trolling the planners offshore due to the resistance that the planners cause, but just about anything floating out there might hold some fish. And I mean anything if he spots a weed patch, grass line, or even a piece of driftwood, you know Captain Taco's gonna pull the baits past it to see if anybody's home.

Both are great options, and you might even have enough time to try a little of both! No matter what, you are sure to have 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 fishing in Ft Lauderdale.

All Taco's trips come with his Full-Service Package which includes an experienced captain & mate, all necessary 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, and a little luck!
