Fort Lauderdale Inshore Fishing

Fort Lauderdale is home to some of the best inshore fishing in south Florida for Tarpon, Snook, Barracuda and other inshore gamefish. Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America”, because the entire city is interconnected through a series of canals known as the Intracoastal Waterway.  In these shallow waters, there are a lot of great gamefish to catch. Tarpon are a gamefish that live abundantly in these waters and are a very sought for light tackle fishermen.  Snook and barracuda are also gamefish species that live thoughout these waters and can be caught seasonally in Fort Lauderdale.  Jack Crevalle are another carnivorous species that hunt in schools and are caught in these same waters. Chum fishing and getting Jacks chummed up behind the boat is a lot of fun and excitement. Whatever fish species you’d like to go after, inshore fishing in Ft Lauderdale will be a lot of fun.

Snook Fishing Season

Snook are another inshore fish that we catch when fishing for tarpon. Snook are an excellent eating fish and when they are in-season, they make a great meal for a lucky angler.

Snook Season is closed (although they can be caught & released):
December 15-January 31
June 1 – August 31
Snook are considered one of the top inshore gamefish in the world. They breed and spend their life until juvenille among the mangrove trees. Once reaching adequate size, they venture off and live in the inshore shallow waters, around boat docks and throughout the intracoastal waterway. Snook are a cunning fish and only take a bait when it is presented perfectly.
