I live in Ohio. After 5 years of fishing regularly with Fishing Headquarters I felt it was about time to tell people why I go there so often. This is the place to fish at any experience level.
Driftfishing on the spacious Catch My Drift is at a budget price with a friendly and capable crew. You have the opportunity to catch World Record fish or a 250lb shark...I did!
Walk-up for an all-day trolling/drift fishing trip on the Mary Bee (This boat is really lucky with fish. I think it is the hull shape, but no one really knows for sure?)
Move up to sportfishing by chartering your own boat. Fish like a Millionaire for a few hundred bucks or share the cost with another group and meet some fun people. (The crews on The Big Game, Keepin' It Reel, and Out of the Blue are very experienced and work really hard to get you decent fish. In about 8 sport trips they have taught me alot about sportfishing and how to target Pelagic species and huge bottom fish in the Grouper and Snapper family. The crew cleans your fish and there are two great restaurants next to the docks that will cook your catch. Bring your own reels or use the provided heavy duty Penn reels and rods. Leave your Zebco's and bass rods at home because at any time you could get a bite from a sea monster. The ride out is fun and once out in the ocean you'll be fishing between 100 and 600ft depths within a few minutes of shore. (Elsewhere in Florida you'll travel hours just to get to 100 feet of water.) That is why Ft Lauderdale in known for its fishing.
My name is Doug--I wear Ohio State stuff. I hope to see you soon because that means I am Fishing too! I fish with kids when I can-my wife doesn't fish. Bring your kids or the ladies and we all have more fun.
Oh and remember that your captain and crew serves you by rigging equipment before you arrive, catching and cutting bait plus netting or gaffing your fish. And they clean the boat! It is customary to give them a tip that reflects: the size of your group, the length of the trip, the fish that they net or gaff, their experience and the good time you have! I like to be known as a good fisherman and a good tipper!
