Took a day trip fishing offshore. Got into a school of Dolphin (Mahi) and landed quite a few. We also caught a small tuna on the troll back in. Captain Woody did a stellar job in very rough seas keeping the boat rock to a minimum. Chas handled all the deck duties to perfection

The crew aboard Local Knowledge were very professional and fun to work with. I'd highly recommend hiring them when you are looking to fish in the Ft. Lauderdale area!

My three friends and I went on a charter with Capt. Mike and his deckhand Richard on the last day of our vacation after my father recomended the Local Knowledge to us. The boat was very clean and had absolutely no issues. Within 20 minutes of arriving, Richard had a sailfish on. After that fish was successfully brought aboard, it... More

Cap't Mike & crew showed our group a great time. Friendly and professional the entire time. Roddy made sure everyone in our group had the chance to reel something in. We took in enough mahi that everyone ate their fill -- prepared at a local restaurant recommended by Cap't Mike. The only "work" we had to do with this outing... More
