All day fishing trip on BIG GAME with Captain Jimmy and Nick our deck hand did not disappoint! Jimmy and Nick both very personable and enjoy the sport of fishing as much as us. I have done a couple charters with this company and was blow away by this experience. From Nick willing to cast net for live bait, them asking us what type of fish we want to go for next and then taking us right to the spots. We caught nice size Mahi, large mut snapper, yellow tail, and had a sail fish on even though it got away it was our fist time finally able to hook one. Jimmy and Nick cut all our fish up to take home quickly. Only advise bring your zip locks to take fish home with you when go out fishing with Jimmy and Nick.

Great group of guys on this boat that are there to make sure that you have a wonderful time. My 10 year had an amazing time unfortunately dad found out he is not a rough water fisherman!!!!! I did not at all have a good time holding on to my insides for four hours. However it was not about me it was about him. He had a great time landed one nice one lost lots of others. Some were more successful than others probably because they are skilled in this type of fishing. The crew constantly made sure that i was fine the entire trip!!!!

I would highly recommend this charter as the crew to sue to take you and your family out fishing!!!!!

I was fortunate enough to get a spot on the Catch My Drift drift fishing boat March 17th, 2020! Andy and the rest of the Fishing Headquarters crew were extremely accommodating with my short notice reservation. I am extremely grateful to have been on this boat as days before everything in Fort Lauderdale was shutting down and moments before boarding we had received news that it would be the last drift trip for at least 30 days (Governor's orders). I can't wait til this craziness is all behind us and I can go fishing with these guys again, because they're the best! Thanks y'all!

We started our trip right after a storm had come through and the winds were blowing pretty good. I ask if we should do this and was told it would be fine. 30 minutes into our 4 hour fish adventure, the waves were So Bad that people were throwing up and one guest started having a panic attack and we turned around. Several guests ask to get off the boat like we did. This boat was rocking back and forth so bad from the waves I'm not sure how you could have fished Hanging on for Dear Life. I ask for a refund and was Denied. I feel like this was SO UNSAFE For me, my wife and our 11 year old. I Would Not Recommend this Company as other boats located right next to it had decided to cancel their trips that afternoon. All they care about is getting their Money.

I'm sorry you guys got seasick. I have absolutely no control over the weather and to be honest, it wasn't even that rough out there, it was pretty mild. In 27 years in business, running multiple fishing trips every single day, we have never had an injury greater than a hook in someone's finger. So unsafe? You are ridiculous if you think that. We do not give refunds (nor does any boat) to customers who get seasick. You were trying to hold me up for a bad review because I wouldn't give you a refund. I am sorry you guys got sick out there. -Capt. Andy Roydhouse

We went Drift fishing yesterday on the boat with Fishing Headquartes. Overall, we had a very great experience and Chuck was a great helpful and friendly mate. Also, we caught a beautiful Big Eyed Toro, which he nicely filetted for us after the trip so we could cook it. Very nice! Also, on the way back in and out, they give you a tour of all the boats and houses in the intercoastal, which is very cool as well.

The one thing that was difficult with this trip was the shakiness of the boat caused by the current. This is totally beyond their control, but at the same time I feel it should be advertised properly, because it made me personally enjoy my trip way less. On 4 hours, I spent the half of it on the other side of the boat throwing up. Also, we were about 20 people on the boat, and 7 of them were sick as well...

I definitely recommend this trip to anyone that loves fishing if you do not get seasick easily! If not, make sure you are careful and know this so that you enjoy your experience at the maximum!

Went with my two boys 12 & 7. Given the present circumstances with COVID-19 the clients were mainly locals so a little sketchy at best. A few partiers drinking in excess so a little uncomfortable having kiddos around. Captain did his best to keep things under control though these type of boats do need to have a zero alcohol policy. Given the present circumstances people tend to forget social distancing when they are drunk!!

Enjoy fishing the same sand 100 yards off Sunrise blvd, Broward, and right off the port? Look no further! Captain shallows will put you smack dab in the middle of nothing but desert, because he thinks fish have feelings too. By the way, don’t braid your reels cause despite your best efforts to know what their Democrat rules are, they don’t post that information online. You won’t catch a damn thing for four to six hours unless by some unwitting stroke of the captains misfortune one meanders into the place where he avoided them. Forty people were fishing today and they brought a whopping six fish in. Seriously save yourself the trouble and just swim from shore or rent a kayak - you might have a better time. At least it truly is that simple to get out to his ‘hidden’ reef spots! Best of luck

Amazing crew!!! We had an awesome time on our trip!!!! Everyone aboard caught so many fish and the crew even cleaned them for us to take home and grill. The staff was so nice and helpful. One of the best trips we have ever taken.

Went out with a group of 13 people. They did a good job to make sure we were all together as a group on the boat. The mates did a good job of teaching the kids how to drop lines down - keeping thumb on line, clicking over when on bottom, and giving it a couple turns on reel. All that being said, we didn’t really catch much. Nothing that we could keep. I gave 4 stars because the crew was nice and helpful with our kids. We had 6 kids aged 6 thru 13. No one on the boat caught much except for locals on the back of the boat who were fishing with spinning rods vs. our rented rod that we were bottom fishing with. We did see dolphins, and a sea turtle which was cool. Overall - the kids had a good time (other than they wished they caught more fish - they each caught 1). If I didn’t have kids with me, I would have preferred a private charter where (hopefully) we could get on fish.

We had an absolute blast with Jon and Tom today! With a larger group on board you may think you aren't going to get personal service and great conversation from the mates but that couldn't have been further from the truth. Both were absolutely amazing helping with the fishing, engaging in conversation and making you feel welcome. Jon even escorted us over to a local restaurant to get our fresh fish cooked up.
Very highly recommended!
