South Florida Fishing Charters–Pompano Beach

If you’re in the mood to chase massive fish in the abundant waters around Pompano Beach, South Florida Fishing Charters will know exactly where to take you! With Captain Johnny Stabile at the helm, you’ll cast your line on some of the most productive fishing grounds in the area and who knows, maybe you reel in your next personal record.

When you’re fishing with Johnny in Pompano Beach, it’s all about giant Snook and Tarpon! These ultimate fighters will battle you for every inch of the line and when you hook one, you better be ready to reel with everything you’ve got. Tarpon particularly come in three-digit weight, and their acrobatic abilities need no introduction.

You’ll meet with your captain in the late afternoon, and as the sun is setting, you’ll hit the water in search of your prey. You’ll use top-of-the-line Penn, Daiwa, and Shimano gear, as well as an assortment of lures to get the fish to bite. If you’d like to use live bait, you’ll catch it at the beginning of the trip, if it’s in the season. Otherwise, your guide can buy it for an additional charge.

The vessel that will be your fishing platform and ride is a 22’ Pathfinder bay boat with more than enough room to accommodate up to 4 people. With a strong 250 HP Yamaha engine that will take you to the fishing grounds in no time, reliable navigational electronics, and a trolling motor, you’re fully-equipped for a fishing hunt. Fly fishing is also an option, just make sure to let your guide know in advance, and he’ll arrange everything.

Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned angler, you’re going to have a blast fishing with Capt. Johnny. Kids are welcome to join you, as long as they’re at least 6 years old, just make sure to bring life jackets for them. It’s also a good idea to pack some food and drinks to stay energized in between the bites.

I grew up in South Florida and I've always had a passion for fishing so I decided to share my love and knowledge with the world. I got my captain's license when I was 19, and after some time, I decided to run charters in Florida. I've also had great success in tournament fishing, but most of the time, I'm just happy to share my angling passion with other people.
