Palm Beach Shores are located in one of the best fishing spots on the planet. Not only are they blessed with amazing beaches and the Gulf Stream carrying big boys right next to the coast, but also with the fact that Mechanical Advantage Sportfishing runs their trips from there! They’ll put you on the hottest bite right off the coast and show you the best tips and tricks for handling the local beasts.

Climb aboard their 45’ offshore sport fishing vessel, custom-built to allow for outstanding fishing and comfort. She can hold up to 6 anglers, fishing at the same time without bumping elbows or tangling lines. To keep you at the top of your game even on longer trips, there are many comforts ready on board. A fully air-conditioned cabin, a full-head toilet, a kitchen, and a refrigerator are all available. Fishing equipment isn’t skimped on, you can rely on a fighting chair, outriggers, and a live bait tank to give you an edge over the local big boys.

You will target a wide variety of exciting local species, such as the Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Bull Shark, False Albacore, Amberjack, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Kingfish, and others you may run across. Your guide and assistant will be Captain Frank Pitale, an avid local fisherman. He’s been fishing since the mid 70’s, so you know he has quite a few keepers under his belt. You’ll go fishing no further than 3 miles offshore, since even the Sailfish are this close to the coast near Palm Beach Shores!

Live bait is available for an extra free, $100 per dozen. There’s a first mate on board who will assist you and clean your catch, he works for tips so gratuity is greatly appreciated. Customers can find parking near the pickup location. There’s no strict minimum age for children but infants are not allowed onboard for safety reasons. The captain will provide 2 life jackets for smaller children.
