Local Fishing Charters is run by Capt. Thomas Jr. He is a 4th generation local fisherman, grew up in Pompano Beach working on commercial fishing and charter fishing. His charter is a great hands-on learning experience, a tour where you get to actively participate in the action. You get a real fishing experience like learning how to properly use gear, and special tactics to get an edge on the fish!

You’ll be fishing on a 26’ Mako boat that accommodates up to 6 anglers. The boat is fully restored in 2021 and decked out, powered by a brand new 300 HP Mercury engine, and is equipped with the latest electronic technology to help find and target fish. There’s also a multimedia system, so you can enjoy your favorite playlist on the boat.

You might be trolling, kite fishing, live bait, bottom fishing, or drift fishing depending on the time of year and what is most likely biting. The list of possible catches goes on and on, but some of the most common ones are Mahi Mahi, Snapper, Wahoo, Barracuda, Tuna, and Mackerel.

The trip is all inclusive, all you need to bring is food and drinks for yourselves. The captain covers your fishing equipment and licenses. If you want to keep the catch, he’ll also clean it for you free of charge. Don’t forget to bring hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen.

Pompano Beach can be the best place in Florida to go fishing so make sure you wet a line while you’re in town. Join Local Fishing Charters for a day!
