South Florida's offer a variety of trophy game fish.
There are many big game species including Sailfish, Swordfish and Marlin as well as Tuna, Kingfish, Mahi, Wahoo and many more. We have put together some of them here for you.
Amberjack: What the Amberjack may lack in long runs and jumping is easily overlooked by its super strength. The pull of this fish is a sheer delight to the angler and this fish makes a beautiful trophy.
Barracuda: The Barracuda, nicknamed the "Tiger of the Sea", is an inquisitive, aggressive predator. Found offshore and inshore wherever smaller fish are to be found. Inshore it provides the angler with an aerial display, often jumping out of the water at heights of two to three times its own length.
Blue Marlin: The largest billfish trophy is the Blue Marlin (up to 1800 lbs.)
Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) (Dorado): Found in warm waters worldwide, the Dolphin is among the most colorful of the game fish. It’s hard fighting and their gold-green and blue color makes this fish most popular. The male has a very distinctive blunt head.
Hammerhead Shark: This shark is probably most easily identified by the hammer-like head. Hammerheads have two species with slight variations in fins and head shape. Hammerheads provide an extremely hard fighting battle, and when finally brought to the boat will make several more runs taking the line you worked hard to get.
Sailfish: This beautiful billfish has the largest dorsal fin, resembling a sail. This fish is noted for its fighting ability and often spends as much of the battle in the air as in the water.
Wahoo (Ono): Wahoo known for its long hard runs at speeds up to 60 mph. Because of the limited number of Wahoo caught, it is considered a trophy fish.
Yellowfin Tuna: This member of the tuna family, although not the largest, is among the world's hardest running fish. It attains weights in excess of 200 lbs. A long battle can be expected from this freight train.
