Ft. Lauderdale is known to the fishing community as an offshore destination. While the offshore fishing in Ft. Lauderdale is really good, the Ft Lauderdale inshore fishing can be just as exciting.

Port Everglades is the main channel that leads you from the Atlantic into the Intracoastal Waterway and the canals that feed through all of Ft Lauderdale.

All those canals and waterways, certain times of the year, are loaded with tarpon and snook. Ft. Lauderdale holds some of the largest tarpon in South Florida, with fishing reaching close to 200lbs.

One of the major benefits of fishing inshore is not getting sea sick. Most days in South Florida, there is a pretty good breeze. If you decide to fish offshore, there is no place to hide from the wind. When that wind kicks up, it obviously kicks up the waves in the ocean. If you are anything like me, after a few hours of going up and down on each wave, you will be leaning over the gunnels showing everyone what you had for breakfast. You seem to forget why you booked an offshore trip in the first place. You can’t wait until you get back to the dock so everything will stop moving! That is probably one of the main reasons I prefer to stay inshore. Fishing inshore waters of Miami and Ft.Lauderdale gives you the opportunity no matter the wind, to stay in relatively calm waters. Fishing inside the intracoastal on windy days is the beauty of taking that inshore fishing trip!

I am a South Florida native and full time fishing guide who has been fishing Southern Florida my entire life. The first time I visited Everglades National Park was a true life changing experience. After attending FAU and Nova Southeastern University on a baseball scholarship, I continued on and played 3 years of minor league baseball. I then returned home to my number one passion, fishing Everglades National Park.

The styles of fishing we do are a little challenging at times, but always fun. I am endorsed by Orvis and specialize in fly fishing and light tackle fishing for tarpon, redfish, snook, trout, bonefish, permit, shark, barracuda, and more. I trailer my 17’8ft Hells Bay skiff all over South Florida so we can experience the best the Glades have to offer.
