Just north of the vibrant nightlife and luxury boat rentals that line Miami’s Biscayne Bay, there’s a laid back, southeastern town for those who like to sit back, relax, and enjoy Florida’s endless warm air and year-round perfect weather. Fort Lauderdale, known for its infinite beaches that stretch along the Atlantic coast and boating canals that host everything from the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show to private boat rentals that can be booked with family and friends, is a delightful sister city to Miami that locals and visitors alike should not overlook.
Known by locals as the “Sailfish Capital of the World,” Fort Lauderdale’s fishing season stretches throughout the year with peak fishing season running from early April through October before everyone heads to Sailfish Alley for the months of December and January. Because of Fort Lauderdale's close proximity to the Gulf Stream, the city’s coast is home to many coral reefs and shipwrecks which, in turn, become havens for fish of all sizes. For those adventurous souls looking to hit the water and go boating in Fort Lauderdale with their family and friends, one can expect to reel in everything from an abundance of Amberjack to King Mackerel.
Luckily for experienced anglers and amateur fishers everywhere, there’s an abundance of fishing charters and other activities in Fort Lauderdale which can be privately booked with or without a captain. So whether you're a seasoned boater already, or a first-time-angler looking for an expert to show you the ropes and guide you along your journey, there’s really no end to what you can do on the water with a great boat rental in Fort Lauderdale. Because of Fort Lauderdale’s abundance of reefs, fishing here can be a wild ride for anyone brave enough to hop aboard a fine boat and cast their reel into the water.
One of the best things that separates Fort Lauderdale from bigger coastal cities like Miami, is the peace and quiet you can enjoy while out on the water while fishing for the city's famed Amberjack and King Mackerel in a nice boat rental along the coast. With your own private captain, you can expect to learn about the history of the city and the mystery of its waters over a packed lunch while sitting back, rod in hand, as the Florida sun shimmers along the water. So whether you’re casting your line for some Tuna at Anglin’s Fishing Pier or deep sea fishing for Tarpon on one of Boatsetter’s top-of-the-line fishing charters, you can rest assured that Ft. Lauderdale is the southeastern city that never stops giving.
