Fort Lauderdale has the nickname "Venice of America" due to the over 300 miles of canals that weave through the city. Not only are there a lot of fish to catch in those canals, but there is also very good nearshore fishing on the many reefs and shipwrecks off the beach, and many different offshore species for anglers to target.
Offshore fishing out of Fort Lauderdale offers anglers the ability to catch many different species off billfish, including Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Sailfish, and Swordfish. Tuna fishing the Gulf Stream can be rewarding with Blackfin, Yellowfin, and Skipjack Tuna. Ther eis also excellent Mahi-mahi and Wahoo fishing nearly all year long.
Fishing the many reefs and wrecks near Fort Lauderdale provides fishermen with excellent catches of Grouper and Snapper most of the year. Trolling these waters will produce King Mackerel and Baracuda. Fishing the many canals, bridges, and inshore waters in Fort Lauderdale gives anglers the opportunity to target Tarpon, Pompano, Jacks, Drum, and Flounder much of the year.
