Palm Beach River/Ocean Charters

"Palm Beach River/Ocean Charters" offers diverse fishing out of Jupiter, Florida! There are thousands of fish to catch in the bountiful inshore and offshore waters of the Atlantic and in the nearby Loxahatchee River. There’s no better guide to explore with than Captain Eric Catsman, a local pro who’s been fishing since before he could walk!

Hop aboard his 17’ Boston Whaler center console, ideal for 3 anglers who all want to fish at the same time. Her practical design makes for a stable and dry ride and the roomy center console provides enough space to fit all of your gear comfortably.

Your targets are various and vast depending on where you want to fish. Inshore anything goes, from jigging for Pompano in the Loxahatchee River to hooking big Tripletail, Redfish, and Black Drum. Opt to head into deeper waters and you’ll bottom fish for Snapper and Grouper. Capt. Eric also always leaves a free line in case a Mahi Mahi or Kingfish swims by!

All you’ll want to bring are any snacks and drinks you’d like to enjoy during your trip. Capt. Eric provides the rest, including your gear, bait, and bottled water. He’s happy to clean and fillet your catch and if you’re happy with how the trip went, tips are welcome and appreciated.

Explore what just might become your new favorite fishing destination with Palm Beach River/Ocean Charters!

For starters, I've been fishing since before I was walking! My grandfather was an avid fisherman and had a wall in his basement with over fifty fishing poles rigged and ready to catch anything! This is where my fascination with the water and fishing began. I've been fishing the Loxahatchee River for over 25 years now and love to explore Jupiter's deeper waters too. The best part of my job is heading out with other avid anglers and I hope to have you on board soon!
