Fort Lauderdale Deep Sea Fishing

Fort Lauderdale fishing is some of the greatest sport fishing in the world. The South Florida climate allows for year round deep sea fishing and fun in the sun while the fish rich waters of the Gulf Stream pass within a few miles of our shore. With fishing conditions close to shore, we will have you deep sea fishing Fort Lauderdale waters in less than 30 minutes. Depending on the time of year and conditions, there are different species of fish to target. From bait fish to big game fish like sailfish, dolphin, swordfish and marlin to reef fish like grouper and snapper, the REEL WORK Sport Fishing team knows where to find the fish and how to put them in the boat.
