Do you boat in Ft. Lauderdale? Be sure to pack your bait and tackle when boating

Boat in Ft. Lauderdale and Boating Port Everglades Inlet

If you own a boat in Ft. Lauderdale or the surrounding areas, the perfect way to pass your time while out on the water is to take advantage of the great Florida fishing available in the area. With access to both fresh and salt water fishing spots, you’ll realize the major bonus of having a boat in Fort Lauderdale is that you’ll be able to create your own personal fishing excursion plan.

So what types of fish should you be expecting to encounter while fishing from your boat in Ft. Lauderdale? Here are just a few of the many different fish species available in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area:

  • Barracuda (Peak time April through September)
  • Bonita (Peak time May through September)
  • Dolphin (Peak time April through September)
  • Kingfish (Peak time March through June, October through November)
  • Snook (June through September)
  • Shark (February through May)
  • Jack (February through May, November through December)

Again, these are only a few of the many deep-sea fish you’ll find when you fish and boat in Fort Lauderdale and the Port Everglades Inlet area. Sailfish, Tuna, Swordfish, and Wahoo are some of the other great catches available.

If you’ve got the right boat for it, the Everglades Inlet area offers a fantastic spot for trolling for mackerel. With a relatively long season (winter, spring and summer), King Mackerel can prove to be a real challenge for even the most experienced of fishermen. If you aren’t experienced with ocean trolling, you may want to consider befriending someone who is, or trying out one of the many available fishing charters in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.

In order to avoid problems, be sure to check the Florida fishing regulations through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The FWC provides all of the information you need to obtain the proper licenses for both saltwater and freshwater fishing, as well as information about marine life regulations, basic recreational saltwater fishing regulations, and much more.

Owning a boat in Ft. Lauderdale or the surrounding areas has endless advantages to it. Adding fishing to your list of boating activities will be one more reason why you love being a boat owner in Florida.
