Capt. Benny will take you fishing the prolific waters of Pompano Beach. The best thing about the area is that you don’t have to travel too far out at all! Benny will show you the hottest spots and honey holes right around the corner.

You will be fishing the drop-offs, endless artificial reefs, and rocky piles. Get some Bonito, crank up Yellowtail, score Kingfish, Tuna, and Wahoo. Head up to Sailfish Alley or venture out to the Gulf for Marlin.

Hit the best fishing spots in search of Groupers and Tilefish. Load the boat with good-eating fish and come back to shore with your own catch of the day. Capt. Benny guarantees a successful catch on whichever trip you decide to choose.

Benny’s Book a Mate & Fishing Charters will take you out aboard a 27’ See Bee center console. The boat has everything you need for a successful day on the water. It comes powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine and is fully outfitted with latest electronics, professional tools, and accessories to put you on fish.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, lures, and licenses. Capt. Benny will clean your catch when you’re done fishing. All aboard!

I'm very passionate about catching fish. I have a reputation for working hard and guarantee fish or we stay out longer. I fish for a living year round. Besides charters, I also catch fish to sell and also catch bait so I always know where the fish are! Following these fish on a daily basis helps to know their patterns and helps to produce more fish per trip. The more we catch the better I look so I'm always trying my hardest and working the whole time to produce a bite. I manage a Tournament team and we have a list of ranking and winnings under our belt.
