Come out for a fun day of fishing in Fort Lauderdale. We offer daily deep sea drift fishing trips aboard the Catch My Drift party boat for $40 per adult/$30 for kids. Or come out on a big game sportfishing charter with the best fishing crew in Fort Lauderdale.

Our drift boat, the Catch My Drift, takes out a big group of passengers and they drift along the reefs for kingfish, snapper and grouper. This is a public charter, so anyone can come. We supply all the bait and tackle, licenses, rods/reels and coolers with ice. Our night trip is especially good for catching action on red snappers, that are great eating. The crew offers free fish cleaning and there are several restaurants within walking distance of our boat where they will cook your catch.

Our sportfishing charters are our best trip for catching bigger and more fish per person. Sportfishing charters take a maximum of 6 people at a time and we target bigger fish such as sailfish, mahi-mahi, wahoo, sharks and tuna. On this trip, our fishing methods are trolling, live baiting, and shipwreck fishing. Catch the biggest fish Fort Lauderdale has to offer and get a trophy fish for your wall.

I went on a day trip recently hoping to catch some game fish ... unfortunately mother nature thought otherwise! The wind blew and we were not very successful with the exception of one back tuna and one amberjack. But that's ok ... and that is fishing!

My girlfriend, dad, and I had a blast this morning on the Catch My Drift! The captain took the boat through the beautiful intracoastal out to the Atlantic, where we fished for a few hours.

We were a group of 4 guys for the morning drift fishing last Friday and had a great time thanks to Justin and Kyle. They were very helpful and super patient when we needed a hand. We caught some great fish and had more than enough for a few meals back at home.
