About Us

No expense has been spared in my effort to put you on that fish of a lifetime. Let the experience of a full time U.S.C.G. licensed and insured captain make your trip a memorable one! So bring your family and friends and enjoy some of the best light tackle sportfishing on Florida’s East Coast.

When you first step aboard The Lucky Vee, a custom built 32 ft. SeaVee, which is built by one of South Florida’s premier boat builders, you will see I have left nothing to chance. You will ride in complete comfort with all the amenities that SeaVee has to offer. On board you will find rod holders galore, electric outlets for kite reels and down-riggers, extra large fish boxes and 3 live wells with a 300 gallon capacity.

The Lucky Vee powered by Cummins 425 H.P. diesel. The boat has a full compliment of Simrad electronics. The electronics package on this boat will feature JL Audio, 10” and 15″ chart plotter/GPS fishfinder units, VHF radio.

Do you enjoy the challenges of light tackle charter fishing? Landing a 50 -90 pound sailfish or a 100lb plus tarpon on 8, 10, 12 or 16 pound test line? Or is bottom fishing for bruiser grouper and mutton snapper more your style? At Lucky Fishing Charters, my fishing plans revolve around you. We can customize your fishing charter depending on what we have been catching. See our fishing reports for more on that. The moon phase and tides may also effect fishing conditions.

We offer a varied selection of charter fishing techniques depending on the season and what you want to fish for. Whether you are new to fishing and want to learn some different techniques or a seasoned angler looking to hone your skills, I will be more then happy to teach you. For your comfort we like to limit our trips to four people, although two or three people would be ideal so that I can devote my personal attention to you. We can also accommodate large groups with multiple boats.

During the fall, winter and early spring, we generally drift offshore, while suspending live baits from the kite. As we watch sailfish, kingfish and many other fish species stalk and feed on the surface. Or we can free line shrimp & crabs while drifting the beachs and inlets along Miami, Miami Beach and Ft. Lauderdale which can lead to monster-sized tarpon. The action can be heart stopping.

Going into the spring, summer and early fall, we will generally run further offshore in search of dolphin, wahoo, and tuna. Looking for birds feeding, weed lines and floating debris that almost always attracts these fish. We can also drift or anchor over the many wrecks and reefs off Miami, Miami Beach and Ft. Lauderdale, dropping live bait in search of mutton snapper, grouper and other tackle busting fish.

GET LUCKY!!!  Once you have gotten Lucky, I will be more then happy to clean and bag your catch for you at no extra charge. To reserve your spot call us today at CONTACT page.
