My wife isn't really into fishing, so while she went shopping (which I know can last a few hours), I decided to go to the Marina and 'dive into' my passion. There were some fishing trips, and though I haven't made any reservations, the guy in the docks was really nice and took my to the ocean. I had to pay something, but considering I caught about 3 Kingfishes and a few Dolphin fishes, for me it was well worth the price.

It was an amazing experience and when I saw my wife had a great time too and she didn't mind me going to the Marina, I was quite happy! :)

Address:
Bahia Mar Marina, Fort Lauderdale, FL

Price:
Varies on the 'tour' or on the gentleman who takes you fishing for example.

How to get there:
Either by car (taxi maybe) on the mainland up 'til the Fire Station, or by water taxi.

Fort Lauderdale History

The fort was destroyed and then abandoned, only to be rediscovered in 1893 by Frank Stranahan, who built there a house. It took 18 years for the new settlement to be incorporated as a city. During this period, Stranahan had built other houses – one of which serves today as a museum – and the Florida East Coast Railway arrived into town. In 1925, as a result of the Florida land boom, [...]
